Well this is an awful shitter - Haim have cancelled all their forthcoming festival dates in Europe.
In a note posted to their social media, the trio confirmed that Reading & Leeds, Way Out West, Tivoli, Oya, Frequency, Krakow, Zurich Openair and Electric Picnic are all off the list, as they need the time to finish up their new album.
“We’re at a critical point of finishing up and need to stay close to home until it’s complete” they explain. “Promise we’ll be back in the near future,” they go on.
Bit of a bummer, but what can you do? Read the statement in full below. On the plus side, the tracks they’ve been playing from the ‘Days Are Gone’ follow-up are sounding pretty fucking great so far. We’re getting awfully excited about that new Haim album - just get a move on girls, yeah?
