You remember the Hives, don’t you? All the chest-pounding and grand-standing that came along with the Swedes first stateside foray. They were to be our new favorite band, or some such proclaimation. They were sharply-dressed, egotistical and had manic live shows to back it up, all thanks to wiley frontman Howlin’ Pelle Almquist. But then the big buzz faded, and 2004′s Tyrannasaurs Hives didn’t do much to convince us they were tops. All that could change of course with the October 9 (domestic) release of Black & White Album (Interscope) its bombastic first single, “Tick Tick Boom,” and a rather odd opening slot stint for popsters Maroon 5. Well played, Adam Levine.

After the jump, all Hives dates, starting September 29 in Detroit, and wrapping November 9 in San Diego.
