British folk-rock band Mumford & Sons announced that they will be touring the US this summer. The band will do fifteen shows in the month of August, beginning in Hoboken on the 1st. The band will be joined on their tour by Dawes (who recently performed in Central Park for SummerStage).
Mumford & Sons have become leaders of the modern folk music scene since their 2009 album, “Sigh No More.” The album has sold over 2.2 million copies and earned them two Grammy nominations. Mumford and Sons showcased their live act at the 2011 Grammys, when they played alongside music legend, Bob Dylan and fellow folk revivalists, the Avett Brothers.
Songs like “Little Lion Man,” “The Cave,” and “Awake My Soul” by Mumford & Sons have become fan-favorites. The group combines that classic folk sound with strong lyrics and powerful, emotional vocal performances by Marcus Mumford and the rest of the band.
The tour precedes the expected release date of their next album, which they finished recording in May. After touring the US, they will break for a month and then head to Australia and New Zealand for a run of shows through the fall.
Tickets for their US tour officially go on sale tomorrow but today, the band is offering a limited amount of pre-sale tickets on their website.
