Due out for full release next week, The Hives' new album, 'Lex Hives' has been made available for streaming in its entirety at The New Yorker, as well as their facebook page.

The album has already garnered several positive reviews. Q magazine gave it four stars, saying "Lex Hives fizzes with the energy of a debut album, the quintet emphatically back to what they do best." and The Toronto Sun heard "a mighty half-hour of slashing guitars, crashing drums - and plenty of neo-Jagger swagger from Howlin' Pelle. Lex is more."

In support of the new album, the band will be touring North America, and will be playing Reading and Leeds festivals in the UK, with more dates here later in the year.

You can watch them playing their latest single, 'Go Right Ahead', on Later... with Jools Holland here.
