Mumford and Sons back in Blighty, new EP on horizon

Missed Mumford and Sons while they’ve been wooing America for the past few weeks? Of course you have – but never fear, Marcus and Co. are back on our fair shores to kick off a UK tour with Cherbourg from October 11.

The folky four piece will be taking in the usual big guns around the country in addition to a special set at the new Winchester Live festival on October 18, which FFS is shamelessly plugging because it sounds bloody brilliant.

The band finish things off at Dingwalls in Camden on November 3 for the launch of new EP Love Your Ground – expect to see fellow folksters such as Jay Jay Pistolet showing their faces in support. Although they might not.

Check out the FFS listings page for the full tour itinerary.
