Author Hernan Osuna - 23.11.2023

Swedish rockers The Hives have announced they are looking for cover bands to perform live for their “franchise”.

The five-piece outfit, who are currently on tour in support of their new album “The Death of Randy Fitzsimmons”, released an official statement, calling for cover bands. “The Hives franchise needs you,” they began.

We have arrived at a point where The Hives can no longer keep up with public demand for concerts. This is where you come in. Help us create a world where The Hives are playing in every city, all the time. Let’s make business together and rock’n’roll.

“Sign up now and register your interest. Many rewards wait in store. We have spoken”.

If bands are interested in embodying the best and contributing to The Hives franchise, more information can be found on their website.
