Universal Music may have moved too quickly in signing The Hives to a multi-million dollar record deal as the group still has one album left on their three-record contract with Burning Heart. “We see it as the end of the contract with them [Burning Heart Records] and that’s why we’ve signed elsewhere,” Hives guitarist Nicholaus Arson told Swedish paper Aftonbladet. “More I cannot say.” Burning Heart marketing manager Richard Ardermark commented: “We are totally shocked and disappointed. We have worked with The Hives for seven years, this has come completely out of the blue. There is a very gloomy atmosphere here right now.”
