Swedish rockers The Hives are swarming over in South America in early September for five shows, before heading north to the United States for nine co-headlining concerts with California’s Eagles of Death Medal. The U.S. leg of their tour begins September 16 in Austin, TX and concludes in Los Angeles on September 25. Willowz will be the opening act.

Meanwhile, The Hives are currently finishing up their European festival dates with 11 performances from August 1-31.

The Hives are promoting their fifth studio album, “The Black & White Album,” which was released last October. It reached No. 65 on The Billboard 200 and contained one of the group’s best known songs, “Tick Tick Boom.”

“The Hives will be returning to various raised platforms on which theatrical performances are given to bestow their sheer brilliance, incomparable riffs and rugged good looks in honor of the greatest stack of songs ever recorded, ‘The Black & White Album,'” The Hives said in a statement.
