Mumford & Sons set up August U.S. tour in advance of new album
Mumford & Sons will take to the road this August for a 15-date tour. The outing includes the British group’s four multi-artist Gentlemen of the Road Stopover festivals they are curating in a quartet of small towns.
M&S will undoubtedly preview a number of tunes from the group’s second album, due this fall. They took a break from completing the follow-up to "Sigh No More" to record "Learn Me Right" with Birdy for the Pixar film "Brave."
The group began debuting songs that could be on the new album earlier this year at some radio stations, as well as playing three new tunes at SXSW, "Lovers Eyes," "Lover of the Light," and "Ghosts The We Knew."
