Secret Sounds Presents

MUMFORD & SONS NEW ZEALAND STOPOVER TOUR

“It’s a sound that would be in its element on stage, but this album conveys that well enough to tide you over until you get that chance to see them live.” APN, 4 stars

Secret Sounds are thrilled to confirm Mumford & Sons are coming to New Zealand for the first time ever to wow audiences this November!

Following on from an incredible 10 concerts across Australia in October taking in Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, Hobart, Melbourne, Canberra, Cairns, Townsville and the Gold Coast, the band will then perform 3 New Zealand shows in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Anyone who has been lucky enough to see them before will tell you it is guaranteed to be one of the biggest and most exciting nights on the years live music calendar!

With ‘Sigh No More’ achieving phenomenal global success, Mumford & Sons have had a jaw dropping couple of years since it’s release in 2009. Having won both Brit and ARIA awards and topping radio charts with the astonishing smash hit ‘Little Lion Man’, they were also nominated for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize, a swag of Grammys and other notable awards. Here in New Zealand, ‘Sigh No More’ reached Number 1 in the charts, with the album attaining triple platinum status! The good news is the wait will soon be over for fans as their highly anticipated sophomore album is set for release in September.

With music we know and love full with enthusiasm and confidence plus a new album to boot, join Marcus, Country Winston, Ben and Ted this November and bear witness to '…their incredible energy drawing us in quickly to their circle of songs, to the warmth of their stories, and to their magical community of misty-eyed men.’ - Sydney Morning Herald

Ticket buyers can be among the first to pre-order Mumford & Sons' second studio album, the follow-up to Sigh No More, to be delivered on the day it is released in the format of their choice. More details coming at http://www.mumfordandsons.com.

The album will be released this September through Gentleman of the Road/Dew Process.
