Este from Haim has admitted to Radio X she's come close to leaking their long-awaited debut album.

The LA sisters began releasing singles which will be on the album back in 2012 but Days Are Gone isn't due out until September 30.

"I threatened to leak it to the powers that be at our label and they weren't very happy about that. I kind of just want it to come out now," Este said.

"Everyday I'm like: should I just do it? Should I just do it? Post it on my Facebook?"

The band also told us they in no way snubbed The Arctic Monkeys, after it was revealed they turned down the chance to collaborate with the British band on new album AM.

"No, we love the Arctic Monkeys," the trio exclaimed.

"What happened was, everyone knows that our record has been.... everyone has been wanting our record to come out for months now and they hit us up saying 'do you want us to come sing on our record?' and we had to say no because we had finish our record first.

"It was the hardest decision we've ever had to make as we are the biggest Arctic Monkey fans."
The LA sisters are playing iTunes festival on September 21 and return to the UK for tour dates in December.

The tour dates are:

Dec 4 - Norwich UEA
Dec 5 - Birmingham HMV Institute
Dec 6 - Leeds Metropolitan University
Dec 8 - Manchester Ritz
