I Will Wait: Mumford & Sons Reactivate Dormant List
Well, well, well. Look who's back. Chart-topping Brit-folk band Mumford & Sons have been flying under the radar for almost two years, taking time off from touring the world to spend time in solace — as well as work on a new album.

As a fan, I was accustomed to receiving updates from the band as they were on the road, as well as notifications about upcoming shows or other things related to the band.
