MUMFORD & SONS’ DELTA IS OUT TODAY TO WIDESPREAD ACCLAIM

63-DATE WORLDWIDE ARENA TOUR BEGINS TONIGHT

Delta, the highly anticipated new album from multi-Platinum, Grammy Award-winning band Mumford & Sons, is out today on Gentlemen of the Road/Glassnote Records (stream/ purchase here). Produced by Paul Epworth, the record was written collectively by the band and recorded at London’s The Church Studios.

The band debuted the album last night at a series of exclusive fan listening events. The screenings, which took place at theatres across the globe, featured the complete album audio accompanied by visuals curated in partnership with National Geographic. Of the concept, the band shares, “While we were recording and mixing Delta, we watched a lot of films on silent including some pretty epic wildlife films by National Geographic—like a vision-track to our soundtrack. So, we felt it would be a nice idea to let fans experience the record in this way too.”

In celebration of release, the band will embark on an extensive 63-date worldwide arena tour beginning tonight at Dublin’s 3 Arena and will span throughout next spring including fall North American stops at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center (sold out), Boston’s TD Garden (sold out), New York’s Madison Square Garden (two nights, first sold out), DC’s Capital One Arena (sold out) and Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena (two nights, first sold out). Special guest Maggie Rogers will join as support. The band’s largest tour to date, the Delta Tour 2018/2019 includes over 800,000 tickets, which are now on sale via https://www.mumfordandsons.com/live. See below for complete tour details.
