Are the trio heading back to the UK?
Asked whether they would return to the UK any time soon, Alana Haim said on the red carpet: “Yes and you might find out sooner than you think. Very, very soon.”
“We can’t wait to play the UK again,” she added. “It’s going to be a party. We love to party. We love to tour.”
Haim are up for Best International Band supported by 19 Crimes Winery at the VO5 NME Awards tonight. They’re up against The National, Foo Fighters, The Killers, Paramore, and Migos.
Last year saw the Los Angeles trio return with a long-awaited second album in ‘Something To Tell You’, arriving four years after their acclaimed 2013 debut ‘Days Are Gone’.
Tonight sees the VO5 NME Awards 2018 descend upon the O2 Academy Brixton in London – where we’ll be celebrating the awesome year we’ve had in music. You can watch all of the action on here.
