Mumford & Sons are of course talented, charming and let’s not forget stylish in those suspenders, but their quick and steady rise to fame was due in large part to their hard work. Once just a few banjo toting boys in London, they’ve since put in more than many miles touring, selling out small venues and large arenas everywhere they went because their stomps and howls really are that good live.
As they wont do, the band spent this past summer Stateside trekking back and forth the country wide on their “The Gentlemen of the Road” tour, but this time they invited documentary directors Fred&Nick to tag along. They tapped interviews and captured behind-the-scenes footage of the band’s life on the road, as well as the tour’s boisterous finale at Colorado’s beautiful Red Rocks amphitheater (as previewed in the “I Will Wait” video), and they have cut it all into a film called The Road to Red Rocks, out November 26th. From the looks of this first trailer (above), it will spend plenty of time showcasing Mumford & Sons good side — their epic onstage side. Our toe’s already tapping in anticipation.
