Mumford & Sons are pleased to share the details of their upcoming North American tour. The band will travel coast-to-coast in the US and Canada this summer, including headline shows in Brooklyn and Chicago, appearances at Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, and Squamish, and their own Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers. For the full itinerary, please see below.
Mumford & Sons are touring in support of their upcoming third album Wilder Mind, out May 4 on Gentlemen of the Road / Glassnote Records. Produced in London by James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, HAIM, Florence & The Machine), and recorded at AIR Studios in London, Wilder Mind features twelve new tracks written collaboratively by the band in London, Texas, and at Aaron Dessner's (The National) garage studios in Brooklyn.
The band premieres a live video for new single "The Wolf" which they performed on Saturday Night Live. "Believe," the first single from Wilder Mind, already hit number 1 at AAA and Alternative Rock Radio. Check out the links here:
Gone are the band's signature banjo and kick drum, replaced by a new emphasis on percussion and focused guitarwork that references rock traditions of the 1970s and 1980s. Experiments in texture and dynamics in early writing sessions in London led the band to a more widescreen, panoramic approach. And yet the songcraft, lyrical depth, and emotional urgency are unmistakably Mumford & Sons. Marcus Mumford describes Wilder Mind as "a development, not a departure", a conscious decision by the band to expand their horizons while holding true to the key elements of their sound.
The album is available to pre-order now, with "Believe" and "The Wolf" both available as instant downloads.
Wilder Mind follows the 2012 release of Mumford & Sons' sophomore album, 2012's Grammy-winning Babel, the follow-up to their 2009 debut album, Sigh No More.
The band recently announced the details of their 2015 Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers, which will take place in Seaside Heights, NJ; Waverly, IA; Walla Walla, WA; and Salida, CO. For full lineups and details, visit http://www.Gentlemenoftheroad.com.
