Mumford and Sons To Tour Highlands and Ireland

February 21, 2011 by  

Recent Brit award winners Mumford & Sons have announced details of a March tour of the Highlands and Ireland, which is pretty much already sold out.

The band introduced the tour with this lengthy statement, which also includes details of a new album:

“We’re focusing on making another album this year so we’ve decided to do a tour where we can get up close with people and road test some new song ideas. We wrote the first album by trying to play new songs live as much as we could – it’s a really helpful way to get to know a song, and to see if it has the legs that it needs to go on an album. It’s hard to tell sometimes when you’re in a small rehearsal room in Wandsworth.

?We also love touring Scotland and Ireland, going back to our Celtic routes, and wanted to take the chance to play some beautiful smaller towns that often get ignored on the more traditional touring routes. We figured that playing smaller shows would take us back to the beginning of our touring lives again.”
