Mumford and Sons Back From Hiatus With New Album, Planning Summer Tour

In support of their new album, 'Wilder Mind' which will be released on May 4, the band has planned a summer tour with Foo Fighters and My Morning Jacket.

AceShowbiz - Resurrecting from their so-called "considerable" break from music, %cMumford & Sons% announced a new album. The set, titled "Wilder Mind", is set to hit the stores on May 4 this year.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the band confirmed their new album would no longer feature "their signature elements - banjo, acoustic strumming, stomping kick drum." They "replaced them with %cU2%-sized guitars, synths, spacey mellotrons and even some drum machines." On that matter, %cMarcus Mumford% explained, "We felt that doing the same thing, or the same instrumentation again, just wasn't for us." %cTed Dwane% then added, "We've got a broader taste in music than just that. None of us had really any interest in doing a sort of Babel 2. It was always going to be different."

To support "Wilder Mind", which will be the band's first album since announcing their break in September 2013, Marcus, %cCountry Wilson%, %cBen Lovett%, and Ted, have planned to embark on a tour this summer. They would be joined on the tour by the likes of %cFoo Fighters% and %cMy Morning Jacket% just to name a few.
