Refused and The Hives announce 2019 U.S. tour together
High-energy Swedish punk bands (and former Burning Heart/Epitaph labelmates) Refused and The Hives haven't toured together in two decades, but they'll do so again in the U.S. in 2019. It'll be both bands' first times playing here in three years. They were both recently announced for the Punk Rock Bowling and Sonic Temple festivals, and they've now added shows together in Philly, Chicago, St. Louis, Lawrence, Denver, and Salt Lake City. That's it for now, but fingers crossed that more shows are added. Refused said:
Last time we did a tour together was in 1998! A lifetime ago. This will be nothing short of amazing chaos to come. It’ll be a boat short of a Viking invasion. See you next year America.
The Hives are also opening for Arctic Monkeys in Mexico. All dates are listed, with videos by both bands, below.
