The band are currently working on the follow-up to their debut album 'Days Are Gone'

Haim have cancelled their European dates this summer.

The band were due to be playing a handful of festivals over the next few months, including Reading And Leeds.

The sisters have been working on the follow-up to their debut album ‘Days Are Gone’. They said in a note posted to their Facebook page that they had now reached a “critical point” in the process, which had led to the decision.

“We hate to disappoint you guys that had plans to come see us and promise we’ll be back in the near future to share our new music with you,” they wrote.
