The Hives frontman Pelle Almqvist had some interesting comments on bands reuniting for festivals. Via the Daily Star:

"It’s sad when we see other bands at festivals who just look back to their good old days. What’s the point of that? Each record has to be better than your last, surely?"

The band performed at Coachella this past weekend with some reunited bands, including At The Drive-In and fellow Swedes Refused. The Hives' new album Lex Hives is due out June 5.
