It's been nearly three years since Haim took over with their debut album Days Are Gone, but this summer the "The Wire" band is looking to release new music and debut it live. On Tuesday (March 29), the trio revealed they have been hard at work in the studio working on their sophomore album, and now they have followed it up with news of a short summer 2016 tour.
"At this point, we just want to go out there and play these songs live," the Haim sisters said in a short teaser video, and boy will they ever.

Haim will then complete their run with a string of festival dates.
