The Hives are ready for their close up with the release of their new video for “Wait A Minute,” which recently premiered on MTV. Directed by Travis Schneider, the video was filmed in a Chicago hotel room using only some leather, an iron, a floor lamp, frozen yogurt, and the sweltering Chicago sun. “Wait A Minute” is the second single from The Hives lauded new album Lex Hives, which was released earlier this summer on the band’s own Disques Hives.
The Hives will return to the U.S. next month for a West Coast run, kicking off September 2 at the Made In America festival in Philadelphia with stops in Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, Oakland, Las Vegas, and more. The tour will include appearances on CONAN on September 12 and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on October 5.
The September dates are the latest on the band’s world tour, which included a stop this past weekend at Reading & Leeds Festival, and marks their second outing in the U.S. following a widely-praised run in June. The Philadelphia Inquirer proclaimed “The Hives have been single-handedly saving rock and roll,” and the Washington Times stated, “The Hives played the audience like a fiddle.” Similarly, MTV praised their “Superhuman capacity for consistent excellency,” and SPIN anointed Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist “one of the greatest frontmen in rock.”
The band’s newest album Lex Hives is receiving worldwide praise, with NME declaring “Let it be said that Lex Hives is amazing,” and The Independent states, “If Lex Hives has one fault, it’s that it makes you want to switch it off, go straight out and see the Hives live,” and Entertainment Weekly proclaims “The Hives have returned to remind us the Swedes do it better.”

Week, the video for “On Your Own” was written, co-produced and co-directed by the Serge Devant himself.
“The story follows a struggling artist in that moment when the whole world seems to collapse around him,” explained Serge from his studio in New York, “but he sees his sleeping girlfriend and can’t help himself but paint her. It’s about that moment when you focus on the one truly beautiful thing that you have, escape into it and produce something genuinely breathtaking and from the heart.”
But in the face of mounting debts and an untimely eviction notice the artist’s companion, played by stunning Russian model Anna Vishnevskaya, fails to find solace in our hero’s work and leaves her love behind. Cue rage, passion and paintings flying out of windows – landing at the feet of an impressed Serge Devant and a cuing complete turnaround of fortunes.
Impressively, the artwork that features throughout the video is the work of Russian painter Andrei Sharov and was commissioned specifically for the video after Devant met the artist in Monaco.
With a full package of remixes from the likes of David Tort, Stephan Luke and Thomas Sagstad & Mike Hawkins, Serge Devant “On Your Own” is out now through www.beatport.com
With its official release date still over a month away, Recollected

Phenomenal Handclap Band speaks about the video:
As a teenager, Father James Park was the local park where my friends and I were able to go and not be bothered by our parents or other authority figures. We used to meet there as often as possible to hang out and clear our minds, and since there were no adults around, it also became the place we’d go to expand our minds. The Unknown Faces at Father James Park is about the inherent peer pressure, confusion, and tumultuous times that teenagers have. For the video, we thought the best way to reflect this subject matter would be to edit together found footage along the lines of the various PSA’s we were subjected to in high school. They were so humorless and terrifying at the time, but looking back, it was a lot of unnecessary warning against what turned out to be healthy experimentation.
Phenomenal Handclap Band is also preparing the release of the follow-up to their acclaimed, self-titled debut album. Form & Control, PHB’s ambitious new work takes their clever fusion of international psych, soul, and cosmic disco a bold step forward. With co-founders Daniel Collás and Sean Marquand at the production helm, Form & Control finds the band once again deftly mixing and matching seemingly disparate musical genres, with a musical palette that now includes prog-pop, new wave and modern leftfield dance.
Form and Control will be released February 14, 2012 on Tummy Touch Records.
