HAIM have announced a mini-tour taking place in five yet-to-be-announced delis across America. The group, who served up the news earlier today on Instagram, will kick off their tour in New York tomorrow, 10 March, followed by shows in Washington, DC (11 March), Chicago (12 March), as well as to-be-announced dates Denver and Los Angeles.
Fans can sign up here with the location that they are interested in attending. The band’s announcement comes ahead of their new album, Women In Music Pt. III, which will be released 24 April via Polydor/Columbia.
Though the choice of venue might seem unlikely at first, it’s worth noting that HAIM’s very first live show was at Los Angeles’ famed Canter’s Deli, back in 2000 when the sisters were kids, as they reminded fans today on Instagram.
“We’ve never done anything like this before so let’s all get together and eat some matzo ball soup and we’ll play you some songs live,” they added, teasing, “Maybe some new ones??”. Fittingly, the cover image for Women In Music Pt. III features Estee, Danielle and Alana Haim behind the counter at Canter’s, complete with aprons.
The photo was shot by acclaimed director Paul Thomas Anderson, who also collaborated with the group on several of their music videos, including those for their four newest singles: ‘Summer Girl’, ‘Now I’m In It’, ‘Hallelujah’, and, most recently, ‘The Steps’.
Set for a 24 April release date, HAIM’s highly anticipated third album, Women In Music Pt. III, was announced earlier this month. Though a full tracklist has not yet been publicized, recent interviews have revealed that the album finds the sisters in a much more introspective period. That being said, the album’s new singles also reflect that the band may be moving in a more pop-forward direction, sonically.
Though tickets will inevitably be very limited for HAIM’s intimate deli shows, fans can catch the sisters this summer at a variety of festivals, including the UK’s Latitude Festival, Madrid’s Mad Cool Festival and NOS Alive in Lisbon, all taking place in July.
Women In Music Pt. III is set for release on 24 April and can be pre-ordered here.
