Mumford & Sons prep for "Wilder Mind" push
Mumford & Sons will hit the road this summer to drum up support for their impending third album, "Wilder Mind."
The indie-rockers will kick off the first leg with a June 2 in Brooklyn, NY, and visit amphitheaters, theaters and festivals across the eastern half of the nation for the majority of that month.
The London-based outfit will then spend the following month touring Europe before returning stateside for an Aug. 7 performance at San Francisco's Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival. The second leg features half a dozen North American stops, including the Aug. 22 conclusion -- one of four domestic Gentlemen Of The Road Stopovers -- in Salida, CO.
Mumford & Sons announced the summer outing just two days after their April 11 "Saturday Night Live" performances of "The Wolf" and "Believe." Both songs are singles from the band's forthcoming Island Records release, "Wilder Minds," which will hit retailers May 4.
The new collection comes more than two years after their chart-topping, multi-platinum "Babel," which earned the Grammy Award for Album of the Year.
