Holy mother mucus!
Early as hell tomo morning we leave for France so Jean Cleaude's and Fransoise's all around France better hold tight to prostate and womb so they dont shake all out of place when The Hives come to rip out some new tunes. Fun shit!
A little listening tip is the Thrashy Creatures from Memphis Tennessee. Greg Robersons (who used to hit hides for The Reigning sound) new band. Enjoy!
Take it all easy peasy.

Things are moving about as fast as dead snails at the moment...
Sounding good though!

From time to time you know The Hives like to showcase some special guests in our diary posts. Well, here is just such an occasion.....Introducing our Travis - film maker, video director & all around great guy fresh off the boat visiting us from Los Angeles, California. Over to you Travis:
"I must preface this little entry with the fact that it is currently 4am Los Angeles time and noon in Stockholm, so needless to say, I'm a bit delirious as I've yet to adjust to the extraordinary time difference. HOWEVER, despite the lack of sleep and generally just feeling like death, I could not be more enthusiastic about my experience here. Hearing these new songs day in and day out has been seriously lighting a fire under my ass to make sure I create some video content that is equally as badass, captivating and energizing as the songs are.
I'm going to pretend for a second though, that it's not just the brilliant new music casting such a positive spin on my stay here, and that maybe, just maybe, there are a few other contributing factors. Firstly, I feel like there could not be more genuine, caring and all around beautiful people anywhere else on the planet. The people of Stockholm could teach the entire world a thing or two about a thing or two. They just "get it" here and it makes me want to be a better person.
Pretty much everywhere you look looks like the front of a postcard. It's an absolutely stunning city (hopefully pictures to follow).
On another note, as if I wasn't already enamored enough with the sights and sounds, I happened to be here on "Våffeldagen" which is National Waffle Day (Google it, no time to explain).. I mean, I didn't think I could love this place any more than I already do, but "WAFFLE DAY"?? Hello?? Earth to EVERY other country, get it together, these Swedes are not messing around.
Anyways, I'm going to try and cut this short because I could go on for hours, but when asked by Mr. Dangerous himself to share a few words, the first thing that came to my mind was "I can't wait for people to hear this fucking record" and also that I wish it was coming out tomorrow so everyone else could enjoy hearing it as much as I have. Then naturally I had to share a little more in attempt to express my undying love for The Hives and their homeland. These guys are really killing it from morning and on into the night. They mean business, brace yourselves.
