During the spring of 2011, Mumford and Sons, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Old Crow Medicine Show toured the U.S. aboard a train as part of The Railroad Revival Tour. When not performing live, the bands ate, slept, and recorded music on some 15 vintage railcars. Now, as NME points out, their experience has been documented in an upcoming film entitled the Big Easy Express.
According to press for the project, the film highlights the “bands vibrant railway adventures; the high canyons, joyous crowds, blasted skies, late-night laughter, endless music ” It is set to debut at the South by Southwest’s Film portion, which runs from March 9th-17th. For now, watch the trailer below; here’s hoping everyone likes lots of high-speed train shots.
