In celebration of their critically-acclaimed debut album Days Are Gone, HAIM have announced that they will hit the road in Spring 2014 for a North American headlining tour. HAIM’s live shows have been touted as one of the best around, with the Los Angeles Times recently proclaiming “there’s probably not a cooler band in America right now” and FADER declaring that the band’s “practiced live show easily rivals any of their peers.”

Featuring crowd favorites, “Falling,” “Forever,” “Don‚t Save Me,” and “The Wire,” as well as title track, “Days Are Gone,” co-written with Kid Harpoon and Jessie Ware, HAIM’s Days Are Gone debuted at #6 on the Billboard 200 album chart. In the UK, Days Are Gone debuted at #1, surpassing sales of new albums by established artists like Justin Timberlake and Dizzee Rascal. SPIN highlighted the album as “one of the most ruthlessly proficient pieces of music to come out this year,” and the Associated Press pronounced that HAIM have “made quite an impact with [their] stunning debut.” Days Are Gone has been awarded an 8.3 rating and Best New Music by Pitchfork, and has been hailed as “the kind of microtriumph you sit up and root for” by Rolling Stone in their 3.5 star review.

HAIM have received unprecedented media attention; the band has been honored in Rolling Stone’s annual “Best of Rock” issue, named both an MTV “Artist to Watch” and VH1 “You Oughta Know” artist, and showcased as Spotify’s first ever “Spotlight” artist. In addition, HAIM have been featured on NPR Weekend Edition, have played a headlining slot at this year’s iTunes Festival and have received early support from Sirius XMU.

Please note: This show has a four ticket limit.
