Mumford & Sons Unleashes ‘The Wolf’

Mumford & Sons reveals another piece to the group’s summer tour plans by announcing headlining dates to go along with the “Gentlemen Of The Road Stopovers.”  Markets include Boston, Detroit, Chicago and Washington, D.C.

The third Mumford & Sons album, Wilder Mind, arrives May 4 on Gentlemen Of The Road/Glassnote Records.  Produced by James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Haim, Florence & The Machine), the disc gives you 12 new tracks written by the band.  Mumford & Sons appeared on “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend to perform the latest single from the album, “The Wolf.”

The new dates surround the group’s Gentlemen Of The Road festival stops.  Appearing with The Flaming Lips, Foo Fighters, Primal Scream and Dawes on select dates, look for “Gentlemen” to gather at such places as Seaside Heights, N.J., Walla Walla, Wash., and Salida, Colo.
