"Folk band" and human gallons of 2 percent milk Mumford & Sons announced a 2013 spring tour, birthing from a pile of cable knit sweaters in Calgary and winding along the West and East coasts, including a headlining stop at Bonnaroo.

The band performs at Mardi Gras World in New Orleans on June 13. The band offers early registration for tickets here. ("This page allows you to register for the opportunity to get first access to purchase tickets for the upcoming Mumford & Sons shows listed below. Selected fans will then receive an invitation to purchase tickets.") Unselected fans presumably must melt their Wayfarers for the band's tour bus fuel.

Mumford & Sons (on the Glassnote label along with Louisiana's GIVERS) earned two Grammy nominations following its debut album Sigh No More, and won Album of the Year for 2012's Babel. The band is the most prominent among a growing "indie folk" trend, among bands like The Lumineers, Edward Sharpe and The Civil Wars, romanticizing folk for Instagram-friendly audiences, as recently captured in a tour documentary as the band and others headed for New Orleans. Babel also was the fastest-selling album of 2012 in both the U.K. and U.S. People love vests.

Joining the New Orleans concert are Michael Kiwanuka and Mystery Jets.
