Mumford & Sons To Test More New Material On March Tour

Pg 17 Mumford Son 474605sFolk rockers Mumford & Sons have been discussing their forthcoming Scottish and Irish tour, saying they see the dates as an opportunity to try out new material as work continues this year on a new album.

“We’re focusing on making another album this year so we’ve decided to do a tour where we can get up close with people and road test some new song ideas,” the band said. “We wrote the first album by trying to play new songs live as much as we could – it’s a really helpful way to get to know a song, and to see if it has the legs that it needs to go on an album. It’s hard to tell sometimes when you’re in a small rehearsal room in Wandsworth.”

“We also love touring Scotland and Ireland, going back to our Celtic routes, and wanted to take the chance to play some beautiful smaller towns that often get ignored on the more traditional touring routes. We figured that playing smaller shows would take us back to the beginning of our touring lives again.”

Tickets for the group’s Scottish Highlands dates have already sold out at the venues’ box offices, while tickets for their Irish dates are due to go on sale from 9am this Wednesday (23rd Feb).
