Mumford & Sons are coming out fighting as they unleash their second album ‘Babel‘, preempting any criticism they might receive with a simple ‘fuck off’ to their detractors.
The band’s 2009 debut ‘Sigh No More‘ was an unprecedented hit on both sides of the Atlantic, picking up Grammys, Brits and much more along the way.
And with those significant successes making the follow-up one of the most talked about releases of the year, Ben Lovett has now got in first with his thoughts on a possible backlash.
“The cynics can just all fuck off,” he tells The Sun. “We think this new record will attract a different audience, which is really exciting. And broaden people’s view of us.”
“We wanted our second album to be an advert for our live shows,” frontman Marcus Mumford adds. “That’s why it’s more of a mixture than the first record. I’ll tour until I’m dead as that’s where we are most at home. And I hope that’s come across on ‘Babel’.”Just Published:
