Renowned for their electrifying live performances, sisters Este, Danielle and Alana Haim are set to take over Jimmy Kimmel Live! with a special outdoor concert on Tuesday, November 5th. Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs weeknights at 11:35 PM/10:35 PM CT on ABC.

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 debut album has been released to tremendous critical acclaim. Touted as "instantly likeable" by The Associated Press, "irresistible" by the Los Angeles Times and "slick, confidently and winningly breezy" by The New York Times, Days Are Gone has been declared "one of the most proficient pieces of music to come out this year" by SPIN. The album 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.

The buzz surrounding HAIM's debut release validates Time Out New York's prediction that "2013 is going to be a good year for HAIM." The band has received unprecedented media attention, being named an MTV "Artist to Watch," a VH1 "You Oughta Know" artist, as well as being 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.

HAIM are currently on tour after having made festival appearances at Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits and Made In America.  Their recent captivating sold-out show at New York City's Webster Hall led the New York Post to proclaim "when it comes to performing live, they already sound like masters of the art." The band will headline shows at Los Angeles' Fonda and San Francisco's Treasure Island before wrapping up their Fall 2013 tour with a performance at Las Vegas' Life is Beautiful Festival (see below for full US tour dates).
