“A collection of 12 high-energy punk-ish songs reminiscent of their best work” – Rolling Stone
After tearing up stadiums across the UK with Arctic Monkeys, as well as a monumental Other Stage performance at Glastonbury Festival last month, The Hives release their brand new single ‘Rigor Mortis Radio’ – the third off their highly anticipated album The Death Of Randy Fitzsimmons, which arrives August 11th via FUGA.
A sheer stomper, ‘Rigor Mortis Radio’ is nothing short of a swaggering singalong constantly shifting gears. It follows the sublime previous singles “Bogus Operandi” and “Countdown To Shutdown”. Listen to ‘Rigor Mortis Radio’HERE.
The Death Of Randy Fitzsimmons will be available digitally, on CD, and on vinyl. A special limited edition glow in the dark gatefold vinyl with poster will be available exclusively via the band’s own webstore.
In the twenty-five years since The Hives exploded around the world, they have sold out stadiums and shared stages with everyone from AC/DC to The Rolling Stones. SPIN calls The Hives “the best live band on the planet” and Howlin’ Pelle “the greatest frontman in rock,” and the BBC dubbed the band “a force of nature.” Rolling Stone named Veni Vidi Vicious one of the Top 100 Albums of the decade and “Hate To Say I Told You So” earned a spot on Pitchfork’s Top 500 Songs of the 2000’s. They have sold millions of albums world-wide with multiple RIAA Gold-certifications. In the time since Lex Hives, the band has released 2019’s double A-side “I’m Alive”/“Good Samaritan” as well as a live album via Third Man Records, and embarked on a series of global tours. The Death Of Randy Fitzsimmons marks a true renaissance.
Kicking off at Leeds Academy on March 27th next year, The Hives take their famously frenzied show to 12 cities across the UK and Ireland, culminating with a date at London’s Eventim Apollo on April 13th. Tickets are already flying, with over three quarters of the tour already sold out. Tickets availableHERE.
