The Hives have returned with a fresh single in “Good Samaritan", representing the band’s first physical release in seven years. The single, along with “I’m Alive” will complete a 7-inch double A-side single.

“Good Samaritan” showcases the Swedish rock band’s punk side, kicking off with a no-frills punk beat that leads into a anthemic chorus.

The single appears to represent an upcoming album, which would be their first since 2012’s Lex Hives, and mark nearly twenty years since the band broke out with their smash hit “Hate to Say I Told You So.”
