The Hives are at work on their follow up to 2004's Tyrannosaurus Hives. The band hit Gröndal Studios in late December to record new material. This is the same studio where both Tyrannosaurus Hives and Veni Vidi Vicious was recorded. There's no word yet on when the results will be made available.

The Swedish garage punk band also recently collaborated with hip hop star Timbaland on a song for his forthcoming album. The band contributed vocals and guitars to a track which will likely be titled "Put It On Me." They also comment "We do not at this time know when it will be out but Timbaland is famous so you will notice when it is time." We'd wager a guess at March 2007.
