Haim have cancelled their European dates to focus on finishing their album.

Haim have cancelled their slot at Reading & Leeds Festival 2016.

The band - comprised of sisters Este, Danielle and Alana Haim with drummer Dash Hutton - have taken to Twitter to announce they will no longer be visiting Europe, in order to "finish up" their second album.

See their tweet below:

The band - who were set to play the twin festival which takes place in Reading's Richfield Avenue and Leeds' Bramham Park on August Bank Holiday weekend - will also miss out on other European festival dates, including Sweden's Way Out Festival and Ireland's Electric Picnic. 

Meanwhile, Reading & Leeds is set to play host to Disclosure, Foals, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fall Out Boy and Biffy Clyro across the weekend- the most headliners ever to play the UK festival.
