Mumford & Sons plot U.S. release, tour dates

on December 18, 2009, 2:30pm

Mumford & Sons are another upcoming indie band you’ll probably hear a lot about in the weeks and months ahead. After conquering the reviewers (including us) and charts across the pond, the British folk rock will bring its studio debut, Sigh No More, to the states on March 2nd (via Glassnote Records). What’s more, they’ll support the release with a few U.S. tour dates as well.

Recorded at Eastcote Studios, a location previously used by the Arctic Monkeys, Brian Eno, Tindersticks, and Laura Marling, Mumford & Sons teamed up with producer Markus Dravs (Arcade Fire, Bjork) for the 12-track debut. The end result is an album that has earned accolades across the board and debuted at #11 on the U.K. charts.

The headlining tour dates will come in February and are currently limited to just four — if you’re in LA, San Fran, Toronto, and NYC… you’re in luck! But we doubt this will be the last time the band makes its way to the U.S. in 2010. Until then, you have plenty of other Euro dates to consider.
