Mumford and Sons are sticking to what they know in their follow-up album to Sigh No More due in September.
The band told 3FM at the Netherlands’ Pinkpop Festival Monday that their sophomore album would be out Sept. 24, although their reps have yet to confirm.
“There’s similarities, yeah,” Band member Ben Lovett said about the band’s first two albums. “Nothing’s really changed in our dynamic as a band. We write songs together and they’re very much based in our experiences. The instruments are pretty much the same, except for a few we’ve picked up along the way. For the most part, it’s a progression. We don’t want to reinvent ourselves.”
Mumford and Sons also announced two performances in the UK and Ireland in June and will bring their show stateside starting Aug. 4 in Portland, Maine. Visit the Mumford website for more information.
