Mumford & Sons to release new single, tour



Bluesey folksters Mumford & Sons have revealed details of their new single as well as a five-date UK tour. 

The Cave and the Open Sea will be released on 6th April, and concludes the Sons’ trilogy of limited edition 10-inches released on the rather wonderful Chess Club Records following the release of Lend Me Your Eyes in July 2008 and Love Your Ground last November. 

Mumford & Sons will head off to America this month to play SXSW and on their return to these isles will play a short UK tour. Dates are as follows:


4/4 Glasgow Stereo
5/4 Nottingham Bodega Social
6/4 Manchester Ruby Lounge
7/4 Bristol Thekla
8/4 London Scala


If you’ve not yet caught the band live, FFS cannot recommend it highly enough. Expect spine-tingling harmonies, rousing choruses and some pretty spectacular knee-swooning (yes, “knee-swooning” – it’s swooning with your knees) from banjo player, Winston.
