Get ready, because The Hives recently released their new video for “Wait A Minute,” which premiered on MTV with praise from MTV’s own Buzzworthy Blog which said, “with squirmy close-ups on Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist’s cartoon eyes and mesmerizing jaw, ‘Wait A Minute’ is anything but zen; it’s a taught, nervy, post-punk track that stays true to the Swedish group’s garage origins.”
We’ve got the band’s remaining U.S. tour dates as well as the official video for “Wait A Minute” below! Take a look and let me know what you think!
Directed by Travis Schneider, the video was filmed in a Chicago hotel room using only some leather, an iron, a floor lamp, frozen yogurt, and the Chicago sun. The track is the second single from the band’s new album Lex Hives, which was released earlier this summer on The Hives’ own Disques Hives and is available for your purchasing pleasure on iTunes.
The band returned to the U.S. next month for a West Coast run, kicking off September 2 at the Made In America festival in Philadelphia with stops in Seattle, Portland, Los Angles, Oakland, Las Vegas and more. The tour will include an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on October 5th!
