It’s been nearly two decades since the Swedish rock-n-roll heroes The Hives unleashed their debut album on the world and today they follow up their intoxicatingly brash new song “I’m Alive” with a new single “Good Samaritan” out digitally via AWAL. Both songs are featured on a double A-side 7” in stores June 28 (with the limited edition SPLATTER VINYL at our Nashville storefront).

Both new tracks were produced by Dave Sardy (LCD Soundsystem, Marilyn Manson, Fall Out Boy) and recorded in Los Angeles.

In a transmission from the band they say: “This a song about helping people help themselves by not helping them? Are they sarcastic or do they hate people now? Is this punk? You never know with these Hives and it’s been a while since I saw them so let’s all go see them again and see what they are on about? Musically faster than usual but a surprising dive into the chorus that feels like going into hyper-space. Now it’s not surprising anymore. Oh well.”
