Mumford & Sons have been playing up the band's new album Wilder Mind, which comes out on May 4, and now the group has announced a 2015 tour in support of the forthcoming release. Billboard notes that the number of dates, 16, is rather sparse considering how huge the band got following its winning of the Album of The Year Grammy during 2013 for Babel. They suggest that the absence of locales such as Los Angeles on the schedule suggests that the band will add more dates as the tour approaches. There's also a noticeable gap between the June 20 performance in Iowa and the August 7 show in San Francisco to fill.
The band is touring in the meantime however, even if it's not in the United States. The band dropped a live music video for the new song "The Wolf" on Monday as well. It, like previous single "Believe," features an electric guitar in place of the band's usual banjo. Music Times writer and Mumford fan Carolyn Menyes has been reporting on that development for some time now.
