    After they were christened as the future of rock (or some critical variation of such), Sweden's The Hives dipped below the radar and went off the grid for a bit. But now, they are happily back and plan to release Lex Hives in June. We'd last heard from the band in 2007 when it released Black and White Hives. Singer Howlin' Pelle Almqvist is happy to be back and is ready to release the band's fifth longplayer, telling the NME that "it's been a terrible couple of years for the band. We're out of the dark ages now though, but we've had a lot of problems. Problems of all kinds. Rock 'n' roll kind of problems, but we're ready to go now."

    He wasn't really open with details, instead saying, "All the stuff that happens in rock bios, all the things that seem like problems for a band, all that sort of thing. It's the same band though, now and forever. We had every other problem, but not that one. It's the same band. We feel really good now, strong, happy and excited."

    There ya have it. Cryptic indeed.

    Are you psyched for Lex Hives?
