Random Mumford and Sons Fact #92835: The Gentlemen of the Road documentary series was released in December 2010 as part of the Sigh No More Deluxe Edition. If you listen closely you can hear various pieces from the future album Babel (2012) both lyrically and instrumentally. Plus, if you haven’t watched this or rewatched it in a while, you are sorely missing out!
Catch Whispers in the Dark in part 1 at 2:06, To Darkness, which would later become Broken Crown in part 2 at 2:17, Below My Feet in part 4 at :30, and Holland Road in part 5 at 4:29. Plus a ton more. See if you can spot them all here ♥
PS: If you have been a long time fan and are overemotional (hi! me!) prepare for the feels and get some tissues
I always heard people saying that these guys are sweet and nice to their fans, but I never knew I would get to experience it! A handful of us were waiting at the gates way before the concert was postponed. As we were heading out to leave, the production staff corralled us back in and led us around, telling us only that “they wanted to talk to us”. After a bit of (literal) running around, Marcus and Winston met us and apologized for the last-minute issues and thanked us for coming out to see them. They sent us off with the U.S. Tour shirt and now I love them even more than before.
If you get to set up your own festival and pick your favourite bands to come play with you and then they say ‘yes’ and then you get to be there for the weekend and watch them and play with them, like…it’s great. - Marcus Mumford
