The Hives Announce “Live at Third Man Records” LP, Share “Hate To Say I Told You So”

By: Staff –

The Hives have announced the release of the direct-to-acetate recording of their new live album titled The Hives: Live At Third Man Records. Recorded from Third Man Records’ famous Blue Room in Nashville, TN, the album will be physically and digitally available on September 25, 2020. Hear “Hate To Say I Told You So” (Live At Third Man Records) below, and pre-save the album digitally or pre-order it on LP or CD HERE.

”We’d been talking forever about doing a show in The Blue Room,” the band says. “Feels good when words are put into action and that action — like always with The Hives — is Rock’n Roll perfection.”

In celebration of their string of sold-out dates in the US last year, The Hives kicked things off in Nashville and blew up the Blue Room. The band incited full arena-pit pogo energy, busting out career-spanning hits from “Tick Tick Boom” to the unforgettable, fresh-as-ever “Hate To Say I Told You So”. 

The evening began with the buzz of the band’s neatly-penned neon backdrop: all cool, sleek and electrified. The Hives then breezed into the room in smartly-tailored white dinner jackets, looking like RNR double-O agents, erupting right into a 1-2 punch of “Come On!” and “Walk Idiot Walk”. And for the rest of the set, the band didn’t miss a beat. It all felt like a rare moment of full attention and participation, something that we miss so badly in a time when live shows just aren’t an option.

It’s been said before and we’ll say it again: The Hives are one of the best live bands in the rock n roll game. This album is proof.
