Smoke Notes

After recording two albums (Tyrannosaurus Hives, The Black and White Album) for the Universal Music Group's Interscope label, the band did not want to extend the deal, and so the band found themselves as free agents. The Hives responded by going independent for their fifth album. Lex Hives was self-funded and self-produced, and has been issued on the band's own Disques Hives imprint.

As for why the band took five years between albums, frontman Howlin' Pelle Almqvist noted the group toured for nearly three years after “The Black and White Album,” but added that self-producing an album with a five-piece band is not the quickest of ways to reach a consensus. “We thought it would be faster if we produced it ourselves as opposed to scheduling it with someone who’s busy 24–7, 365 days per year,” Almqvist said. “Rather than squeeze in some studio time, we could go in to the studio whenever we wanted. It turns out that having five producers who have an equal say of everything isn’t that fast. You’d think we could have guessed that in advance.”
