Mumford & Sons reveal album details for ‘Wilder Mind’

951

For their third studio album, our favorite foot stopping group have decided to venture away from the twang of a banjo, in exchange for a more rock sound. The album features 12 tracks and is set to drop May 4th, via Glassnote Records.

The band comments that: “Towards the end of the Babel tour, we’d always play new songs during soundchecks, and none of them featured the banjo, or a kick-drum,” says Marcus Mumford. “And demoing with Aaron meant that, when we took a break, we knew it wasn’t going to involve acoustic instruments. We didn’t say: ‘No acoustic instruments.’ But I think all of us had this desire to shake it up. The songwriting hasn’t changed drastically; it was led more by a desire to not do the same thing again. Plus, we fell back in love with drums! It’s as simple as that.”

In addition to the new album news, the boys of M&S have announced the first details and line-ups for their 2015 Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers. These are two day festival like events that feature a more intimate showcase of some of your favorite artists, completely curated by M&S.
