Just got back to the hotel after a blistering performance at the Benacassim festival. The Hives were well on form after having the day off yesterday and blasted out whetever they had in their system to make the night nothing short of magic.
It was good as well seeing all our Spanish fans again. Long time no see but you all made the night extra special and The Hives will no doubt come back. Thanks alot and you're welcome!

Yesterdays show in Slovakia was a complete bomb. Great crowd and great Hives. Congrats to all of you who were there.
We played a new song again yesterday. It's called "Well all right!" and will probably make it on to the new album. That however was our biggest fuck up of yesterdays show. Seldom have The Hives messed up so brutally.
Nevermind though. Before perfection there is sometimes failure and we proved that as well yesterday. The Hives love proving a point and if that means messing up sometimes then so be it.
See ya'll tomorrow in Spain for Benacassim.

Back on the road again after a couple of busy days in the studio finishing up the record.
Just embarked on a little minitour that will take us to all 4 corners of Europe. Slovakia tomorrow and then Spain and UK.
Today though it was Tromsö Norway that welcomed your favourite Thors with open arms. Had a great show even though early in the day and if you are anywhere nearby you should stick around to check out Turbonegro, New Bomb Turks and Iggy and the Stooges who are also playing the Bukta festival.
See ya'll tomorrow in Slovakia. A first for The Hives.
Arson forever and ever!
