This is what we like to see in our bands, the desire to smash out more and more albums. And when it’s a band as charming and awesome as Mumford & Sons, we’re all the more for it! In a recent interview, namesake and frontman Marcus Mumford has explained just how keen the boys are to keep the wagon rolling.
It’s no surprise why – with the band’s second and most recent release, Babel, shooting through the UK charts to #1 and smashing the previous US first-week-of-sales record by unloading a crazy 600,000 units in their first week. Speaking with Newsbeat (Via NME) Mumford has explained that the three-year gap in releases prior to Babel won’t happen again.
“We want to make one quicker than we did with this one. We want to get into the studio quicker and get another album out a bit sooner,” he stated, referring to their previous album Sigh No More. He continued to explain that long gap by adding “we were touring and we didn’t have time. It wasn’t like we were sunning ourselves. We’ve been playing music the whole time.”
Mumford & Sons will be bringing their renowned woodcore stylings to Australia this very month, with a string of shows booked in to bring Babel Down Under. Take a look at what Music Feeds thought of the release also, right here.
