Story by Jack Foley

MUMFORD & Sons have announced details of their biggest UK tour to date this Autumn.

The dates in October will follow a relentless touring schedule for the band, that has taken them across India, Australia, Europe and America over the past 12 months.

Tickets are on pre-sale now from www.mumfordandsons.com (for £18.50/£20, London) and on general sale from Wednesday. A second London date has also been added, due to unprecedented demand.

Support for these dates comes from Johnny Flynn and Matthew & The Atlas.

In addition to the live dates, fans have the option to pre-order a limited EP called Volume 1 under the band’s alter ego, The Wedding Band.

Volume 1 was produced by Ethan Jones and Dom Monks within two days at a London studio, with some of the band’s old friends.

The EP is comprised of songs that are regularly heard played out on the band’s tour bus, but very rarely live on stage.

The 10” EPs will be limited to 100 copies per show, and can only be bought via www.mumfordandsons.com in conjunction with the purchase of gig tickets.

Any remaining copies of the EP not sold through the pre-sale will be made available at the venues on the night at £7 each, through Gentlemen of the Road/Chess Club Records.

The EP will also be made available to fans buying tickets for the band’s short run of European dates at the end of September in Paris, Amsterdam, Cologne, Berlin and Brussels.

The October 2010 tour dates are:

1 – The O2 Academy, Glasgow
2 – The Apollo, Manchester
4 – The Dome, Brighton
5 – Rock City, Nottingham
6 – The O2 Academy, Bristol
8 & 9 – HMV Hammersmith Apollo, London
