Mumford & Sons posted a brief video online late last week of the band in a rehearsal studio, hinting that a big announcement is coming on Monday (March 2nd). According to FMQB, the group is most likely to reveal the title and release date of its third studio album. The British quartet has been on hiatus since September 2013, after completing the touring cycle for their mammoth sophomore album, Babel.
Babel debuted at Number One on the Billboard album chart and stayed there for three weeks. The multi-platinum disc was named Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards in February 2013.
Babel sold 600,000 copies in its first week of release back in September 2012 and went on to sell more than two million copies.
Mumford & Sons stayed largely out of sight during its break, with only frontman Marcus Mumford briefly surfacing to work on the soundtrack for the movie Inside Llewyn Davis.
The band is confirmed to headline the 2015 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. The 14th annual four-day camping and music festival will be held from June 11th through the 14th in Manchester, Tennessee, 60 miles south of Nashville. Other headliners include Billy Joel, Florence And The Machine, Deadmau5, Robert Plant, My Morning Jacket and many more.
