Best. News. Ever: HAIM Announce Massive World Tour

Good news: One of Fuse's favorite new bands are coming to visit their fans across the globe! 

Yep, SoCal sister trio HAIM will support their debut album Days Are Gone—which went No. 1 in the U.K. and No. 6 stateside—with a massive world tour, kicking off January 22 in Japan. From there, Este, Danielle and Alana will head south to New Zealand and Australia, then make their way through Europe. Finally, the girls will land stateside for 17 shows, including a stop in Austin, TX for SXSW. How vital is seeing HAIM live? Well, watch the full eight-song set at iTunes Fest above for proof. Oh, and expect lots of Este's wicked bass face.

Before then, though, HAIM will close out 2013 with shows in Europe and a slot on Saturday Night Live on November 23, hosted by Catching Fire star Josh Hutcherson. Check out the band's full tour itinerary at Pitchfork.

It's been a big year for HAIM. The band built a wave of buzz online with singles like the catchy glam-rocker "The Wire," which helped push Days Are Gone to the top of the charts. The girls also signed with Jay Z's Roc Nation Management team. "We are obsessed with Jay Z and really excited that he wants us to be in his personal space," HAIM recently told Fuse. Well, looks like Fuse and Hova have something in common.
