Mumford & Sons Return for 2012 North American Tour in August
Mumford & Sons has seen its ascent to superstardom accelerate at an almost unheard of pace over the last three years. After the success of their breakthrough single, ‘Little Lion Man,’ the British folk-rockers have found themselves going multi-platinum while wading kneedeep in awards and award nominations (including racking up six Grammy nods over the last two years).
All of this was happening while they remained road warriors. The band recently announced plans for August’s Gentlemen of the Road Stopover tour, a four-date mini-festival featuring lineups curated by the band themselves. They’re also releasing ‘Big Easy Express,’ a tour documentary following the guys’ 2,477-mile long railcar tour of the Western half of the U.S. And yes, there are plans to unleash the as-of-yet-untitled sophomore album in late September. Naturally, for the guys, a tour is in order.
Kicking off in New Jersey on the first of August, the band returns to the open road, bouncing around New England before heading west and finishing in Colorado where they’re headlining the annual Jazz Aspen Snowmass Festival.
