Mumford and Sons Unveil New Album Details and 2015 Tour + Festival Dates

by Photo of Sean Driscoll

The band has announced dates for their ‘Gentleman of the Road’ stopover festivals

Mumford and Sons released a short trailer teasing their new electric sound for their latest album Wilder Mind. 

The trailer, which is only twenty one seconds long, features the distinct snarl of an electric guitar, and gives fans a small idea of the bands new sound while simultaneously promising the same high energy and harmonies the bands performances have become known for. 

The band was looking to move away from the banjo filled folkrock sound of their highly acclaimed last album, Babel,  after touring extensively for two years in support of it. The new album, Wilder Minds, was recorded over the past year in London, New York, and Texas and is said to not contain any acoustic instruments. 

When asked what triggered their latest transition, frontman Marcus Mumford said, "We felt that doing the same thing, or the same instrumentation again, just wasn’t for us, we’ve got a broader taste in music than just that.” 

The album new cover art and full tracklisting can be seen below.
