Hives frontman Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist spoke with Stuart Berman of the Toronto Eye about how there big audiences are something new form the group. “There was never a big audience for this type of thing before,” he admits. “And we knew that, but the situation is different now, I guess. I do feel weird sometimes about playing in front of VIP sections: I have a hard time relating, because I was never let in. But I actually think it’s a lot weirder that a band like Puddle of Mudd is more popular than we are.” Eye.net has since removed the article.
