Mumford & Sons

Wilder Mind -The New Sound of Mumford & Sons Live

Mumford & Sons remain kind of a phenomenon in the music business right now. Unlike most rock bands, they sell albums and they sell out large concerts. For a new band nowadays that is kind of unusual. Their last album Babel went platinum and also won the best new album Grammy. That album, released in 2012, capped an amazing run from the release of their debut Sigh No More in 2009 which found the band going from playing clubs in England to having their own travelling Gentlemen of The Road festival – which continues this summer! All that compressed work took its toll and the boys went on a hiatus to recharge the creative spark. When they came back they found themselves in a different mind-set that resulted in them making very different music on their new album Wilder Mind. No more banjos and a much more straightforward rock sound. There has been much discussion online and in the press about their new direction. Decide for yourself today as we talk with Marcus Mumford and Winston Marshall and hear a live set from Mumford & Sons.
