Swedish garage rockers the Hives are known for their vigorous stage presence -- something they've showcased with nonstop touring since the release of their latest album, ‘Lex Hives.’ The band kicked off 2013 by taking the U.S. by storm -- check out our exclusive photos of their raucous rip through a sold-out New York City gig -- and now, the group is gearing up for some Swedish shows at the end of April and numerous European festival appearances this summer.

There’s nothing better at the start of a work week than a bit of soulful rock 'n' roll, and Vintage Trouble offer just that.

Toronto alternative rock band MENEW are made up of three brothers -- vocalist and guitarist Shade, keyboardist and synthesizer player Key, drummer Nathan -- and their touring bassist Jesse Filice.

Diffuser got the opportunity to talk to Shade, who dishes all about the band’s full length debut record, growing up on a Christmas tree farm, his admiration for Muse and much more.
