SWEDE SWEDE MUSIC!

The band enter a studio in Fagersta to start work on the follow-up to 'Your New Favourite Band'...

Hives have returned to their home city of FAGERSTA, Sweden, to begin recording their new album.

The garage rockers are hoping to enter the studio later this month to commence work on the follow-up to last year’s breakthrough compilation ‘Your New Favourite Band’.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, singer Pelle Almqvist claimed the new material was “A bit stiffer then the last album. Kind of like Devo crossed with Motown.”

He continued: “The actual recording is pretty simple, most of the songs are two to three minutes, and it takes two to three minutes to record them. Even if it’s a hundred songs, it only takes a few weeks.”

As previously revealed on NME.COM, Hives play this year’s V Festival, which takes place over the weekend of August 16 and 17 at Hylands Park in Chelmsford and Weston Park in Staffordshire.
