The full stream has arrived for The Hives' fifth album, Lex Hives, and it's a bombastic fit of Swedish greatness.

The Swedish band is releasing the hotly anticipated follow-up to 2007's The Black and White Album on June 4th, and it's a shot from the heart – but doesn't give a single inch on the energy overload.  Check it out below, thanks to The Guardian.

We caught 'em at Coachella, and can say with certainty that these boys are all fire. Pickup their new album on June 4th at their official site. A fat sack of love to Rocko at Some Kind of Awesome for the heads up.
