So, we've got a few teases so far that kinda hint at a new Haim album for 2017. We're here to share everything we know, so let's get started. 


Wait a sec - before we just jump into it, let us share a bit about the band in case you haven't heard of them yet. They're a pop-rock band from Los Angeles made up of three sisters and a drummer.


Haim Band Members


Let's break it down for you: we've got Danielle Haim on guitar and lead vocals, Este Haim on bass, Alana Haim on guitar and keyboard on stage with Dash Hutton on the drums. 


Ok, now we're ready to share what we know. 


Haim Teases with New Billboards 


All across this wild world we live in, billboards have been popping up featuring the band. We've seen billboards in Berlin, Sydney, LA & London. It looks like a beautiful commercial for perhaps several well-known clothing brands but the only word that is featured on the billboard is none other than 'Haim'.

Bastille's Tweet 


Dan from Bastille tweeted an image of one of their new billboards and, well, he kind of confirms (in his excitement) a new Haim album.

Polydor UK Tweet


Polydor UK, their record label, tweeted "New Haim Coming!" and then deleted it. Sneaky, sneaky, but we caught you. 


That Time Haim Cancelled European Tour Dates


Last year Haim cancelled some of their European tour dates in a hand-written letter explaining that they need to finish their album.

4. Do You Really Need More Info? 


Well if you do, they've shared a picture of the band in studio...and the caption? '2017'

In all fairness, they do like to tease, and we have been expecting a new album for a while now. Doesn't make us any less excited, so everyone reading this, cross your fingers now and let's hope 2017 is the year for a new Haim album. 


P.S. Since we haven't heard much from Haim since their 2013 album Days Are Gone, we thought you might like to take a listen to some of their tracks. Check out some Haim songs below.

Arcade Fire, the highly acclaimed indie rock band, are working with the ice cream giants, Ben & Jerry's. It's all listed below. To start though, we'll lead with a wonderfully whimsical clue: "My Body is a Cone." There is a lot going on, we'll also shed light on Arcade Fire's involvement in all things Brooklyn Vegan and Yondr. 


Arcade Fire Ben & Jerry's 


Combine Ben & Jerry's with Arcade Fire? It's a combo that not many could turn down, nor really understand for that matter. The band has recently announced that at the end of August, Arcade Fire ice cream from Ben & Jerry's will be available. Just imagine Ben & Jerry's sweetness sprinkled with Arcade Fire's signature wit.


Arcade Fire ran a poll on Twitter to find a name for their Ben & Jerry's ice cream's flavor (all of this was in honor of National Ice Cream day...of course). 


The options



  • "Arcade Crunch"

  • "Peanut Butler & Kingsberry"

  • "Infinite Chocolate"

  • And the winner:


"My Body is a Cone"


That's right, a big pun on their single "My Body is a Cage," which you can listen to below...and eat a themed ice cream to.


Keep in mind, that these days everything is a meme and everyone is a troll, so it's highly unlikely we'll ever get to taste the flavor that involves 'fudge skeletons' and 'crunchy-bone pieces.' Then again, who knows, they did make cereal for "Creature Comforts," a track off their forthcoming album, Everything Now.


Arcade Fire Brooklyn Vegan 


Arcade Fire have an Everything Now release show taking place on July 27th at Grand Prospect Hall in Brooklyn. It'll be live-streamed on Apple Music. There was controversy after Brooklyn Vegan revealed a message detailing a dress code for attendants:  



Our dress code is HIP & TRENDY as if you are going to a concert or night out with friends! The event is standing-room-only so please plan accordingly.
PLEASE DO NOT WEAR shorts, large logos, flip flops, tank tops, crop tops, baseball hats, solid white or red clothing. We reserve the right to deny entry to anyone dressed inappropriately.



Arcade Fire has disputed this, saying that if the 'dress code is "hip and trendy," band members will not be allowed through the door.' Win Butler, the band's frontman, said that the dress code, as well as phones being taken at the door (explained below) must 'be an Apple thing.'

Yondr


Included in the pre-show message, was the following notification: 



No cellphones, cameras or recording devices will be allowed at this show. Upon arrival, all phones and smart watches will be secured in Yondr pouches that will be unlocked at the end of the show. Guests maintain possession of their phones throughout the night, and if needed, may access their phones at designated Yondr unlocking stations in the lobby.



Yondr is a new development that allows show participants to keep possession of their phone, but removes their ability to use it. As people enter a venue utilizing Yondr, they place their phone in a bag which locks when entering certain zones.


Arcade Fire have hosted a secret show before where phones were taken away at the door, however, they're denying plans to do this at the Everything Now release show. To end off, let's all take a moment to allow Win's wise words to sink in:

Purity Ring, a Canadian electronic music duo consisting of Megan James (vocals) and Corin Roddick (instrumentals), have just teased new music. Formed in 2010, the band released their first album, Shrines, in 2012. The album was then followed by another in 2015, Another Eternity. Could 2017 be the year for yet another new Purity Ring album? 


Teasers


Fans get pretty excited when a band posts a photo of themselves in the studio, as was the case in early July when Purity Ring did just that. 


https://twitter.com/PURITY_RING/status/886042379395883008


The photo was followed up with a video clip containing new music. With it, is an animation of an ashen figure walking across a desert landscape; the music gives inertia to the haunting atmosphere and could mean that Purity Ring are moving back to their 'spooky sound' like that of Shrines


https://twitter.com/PURITY_RING/status/888888408721858561


A Premier?


The last we've heard from Purity Ring is a Tweet that contains a date and time, including the Twitter handle of Zane Lowe's show on Beats 1 Radio. All of this together, leads one to believe that we'll be hearing brand new Purity Ring today at 12:30. 


https://twitter.com/PURITY_RING/status/889171374685769728


If you miss it, be sure to head back to Indie Shuffle; we'll try get it up as soon as it's out. Until then, we've given you a selection of Purity Ring's top four most popular songs on the site to choose from below.
