The Hives are currently in the US playing a few intimate shows promoting their first album in 11 years, The Death of Randy Fitzsimmons, which will be out in August, and that started with an appearance at Pasadena's Just Like Heaven fest on Saturday. They were a last-minute fill-in for fellow Swedes The Sounds, who had to bow out, and they brought a big jolt of energy to early slot, opening with new single "Bogus Operandi" and then kicking out the hits, including "Walk Idiot Walk," "Hate to Say I Told You So," "Tick Tick Boom" and more. Check out video and setlists from their Just Like Heaven performance below.

The band hit NYC tomorrow for a sold-out show at Racket before heading home, but will be back this fall for a proper North American tour. "The time has come to once again make our triumphant return to those United States of America," they say. See all dates below.

The NYC show starts the tour, on October 30 at Brooklyn Steel. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 19 at 10 AM local, with various presales starting Wednesday, May 17 at 10 AM.
