New Music: Mumford & Sons – “Believe”

9 Mar

It has arrived! Give a listen below to the lead single off Wilder Times, the upcoming third album from Mumford & Sons due out May 4. The four fellas put the folk aside in favor of a more electric and rock sound which I personally think will help elevate their live shows and well warranted headlining slots. Read more about the new found sound from Billboard, HERE.

Mumford & Sons – Gentlemen of the Road Stopover Returns

2 Mar

Fresh off the news that Mumford & Sons’ new album, Wilder Mind, is due out May 4, the fellas have even more exciting news to share!  One of my favorite “tours” in recent years has been Mumford & Sons’ Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers and it’s back! Not only is it back but just look at these lineups, stacked with a ridiculous amount of great artists. Plus stoked to see Blake Mills on here. He’s in the spotlight right now for producing the Alabama Shakes sophomore effort and has a storied music career already but give a listen to his solo stuff, I think you’ll dig it.

Mumford & Sons Present: Gentlemen of the Road

29 May

I swear Mumford & Sons are geniuses.  Last time out it was the Railroad Revival Tour and this year it’s Gentlemen of the Road.  Straight from the fellas:

Join us this summer for a series of Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers at handpicked locations around the world. Each Stopover is a day-long event, celebrating the music, food and people of the places we’re visiting. We’ll be bringing a full lineup of some of our favorite bands from around the world, and curating events that combine a music festival and local gathering into one epic party. We plan to start early, and go late, taking the party from the stage to the town.

Please come join us if you can. It’ll be a whole lot of fun.
