Sweden's ferocious The Hives are back, on tour now with Refused, and now here's a new song. "I'm Alive" is not a breakneck ripper like "Main Offender" or "Walk Idiot Walk" but it's still a towering rocker -- and one that will be out as a 7" via Jack White's Third Man Records. "'I’m Alive’ is a song about crawling up from under a rock and obliterating all resistance that sounds like crawling up from under a rock and obliterating all resistance because it is a band crawling up from under a rock and obliterating all resistance," says frontman Pelle Almqvist. "Use it in your own life to help you obliterate your own resistance!" Listen below.

The Hives/Refused tour kicks off tonight at the Sonic Temple fest in Columbus, OH and then hits Philly on Saturday (5/18), followed by Chicago, St. Louis, Lawrence, KS, Denver, Salt Lake City and then wrapping up in Vegas for Punk Rock Bowling.
