Firstly, a massive THANK YOU to all the Glastonbury goers who made it to the set on Friday (18,000 of you we heard!) UK peeps can watch highlights from the show and footage of the band in Jo Whiley’s Live Lounge right here. Now…
Let’s all agree not to mention the football, yeah? ‘Preciate I’ve kind of pre-empted attempts at blissful ignorance with the title but whatevs – Cleese has dined out on ‘Don’t mention the war’ for years and I fancy a piece of the catchphrase coiffurs, so DON’T MENTION THE FOOTBALL.
What I will mention – loudly – is that Mumford & Sons will be touring the UK and EU this coming Autumn!! Ah yeah boi, gonna be a super sweet sickteen partay like what you see on that MTV… Only not soul-destroying… Or pink… And no horse-drawn carriages… Okay, maybe a little pink, and perhaps one pony…? No? Maybe just a little one? For Winny?
Dates ‘n’ deats below gentle bredren! Get on that!
In addition to this, we are pleased to bring you the news that those who book tickets to a UK show will also be presented with the option to pre-order a 4 track 10" EP, by ‘The Wedding Band’, simply called ‘Volume 1’, ‘The Wedding Band’ comprises of Mumford & Sons, and some musical pals, recording some tracks that get played on the road, but very rarely on stage.
