Currently on tour at stadiums across the UK with Arctic Monkeys, The Hives have released brand new single "Countdown to Shutdown".

"Countdown to Sundown" follows "Bogus Operandi", which was released last month. The band performed both songs live via a special for Howard Stern’s Sirius XM channel last week. Both tracks feature on The Death of Randy Fitzsimmons which is their first full-length album since 2012's Lex Hives.

Of the track, Howlin’ Pelle says: “The countdown to the financial collapse? The countdown to the weekend bender you’ve been waiting for? The countdown to your favourite sports competition? The Hives have you covered with Countdown To Shutdown. A versatile banger for all your summer rock needs. Approximately 37% more effective than the closest competitor and sure to help your Q2 and Q3 results. Buy now and watch the stock rise!”

The new single's release is accompanied by a video directed by SNASK (Viagra Boys).

"Countdown to Sundown" is out now. The Death Of Randy Fitzsimmons is out on 11 August via Fuga.
