After wrapping up their European tour on May 19, the English folk rockers will come back Stateside to hit the festival circuit, including appearances at Napa Valley's Bottlerock May 24-26 and KAABOO Del Mar September 13-15. The band recently shared a mini-documentary called Mumford & Sons: 12 Years Strong, which saw the band reflect on its journey to success and get back to its roots by performing at some iconic American record shops.
