The Hives have just announced a UK and Ireland headline tour for 2024.

Fresh from supporting the Arctic Monkeys, the band will be returning next year for a 12-date run, kicking off at the Academy in Leeds on March 27 and wrapping up at London’s Eventim Apollo on April 13. Tickets go on sale next Friday, June 30.

Ahead of the tour, of course, The Hives will be releasing their first new album in 11 years, The Death Of Randy Fitzsimmons, on August 11 via FUGA.

Speaking about what’s to come from the record, frontman Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist says: “There’s no maturity or anything like that bullshit, because who the fuck wants mature rock’n’roll? That’s always where people go wrong, I feel. ‘It’s like rock’n’roll but adult,’ nobody wants that! That’s literally taking the good shit out of it. Rock’n’roll can’t grow up, it is a perpetual teenager and this album feels exactly like that, which it’s all down to our excitement – and you can’t fake that shit.”
