The Hives Chosen as Opening Act on Pink’s ‘Truth About Love Tour’
The Hives, the Swedish rock band that first rose to prominence in the early 2000s as a leading group of the garage rock revival, playing garage punk, have been chosen as the open act on the North American leg of Pink‘s 2013 Truth About Love tour.
The Hives are touring in support of new album Lex Hives, which came on in June. Lex Hives represents the garage rockers’ fifth studio album and the long-awaited follow up to 2007′s The Black and White Album. It is the band’s first self-produced album, as they’ve decided to take the indie rout.
Their tour with Pink should represent a return to stardom, as her ‘Truth About Love’ promises to be one of the bigger shows of 2013. It will hit 25 different cities in six weeks. She’ll be touring in support of new album, The Truth About Love, which was released September 14th and made its debut atop the Billboard chart.
