With their new album ‘Babel‘ due to hit the top spot in the US and already confirmed as the UK’s fastest selling of the year, Mumford & Sons have said that’s quite enough thank you very much, as they hope to not be heading towards the same level of fame and success enjoyed by Oasis during the Nineties.
“We don’t want to be as big as Oasis,” Ted Dwane has told NME. “I think we’re bigger than we ever wanted to be. I don’t think we want to get any bigger now.”
“We want to deserve the place that we’ve got to and be good to the people who’ve been good to us. We’re interested in travelling and sharing the music with as many people as possible – there are some places where ‘Sigh No More’ has done quite well that we haven’t actually been yet, like Japan – but I couldn’t imagine it getting any bigger really.”
Mumford & Sons will take their new album out on the road later this year, when they plan to visit both British theatres and arenas during the lengthy tour.Just Published:
