These little random Mumford facts have been on our social media pages for a couple of weeks now. However, here is one for our non-social media dwelling fans. This one is about the Gentlemen of the Road Documentary Series.
Random Mumford and Sons Fact #92835: The Gentlemen of the Road documentary series was released in December 2010 as part of the Sigh No More Deluxe Edition. If you listen closely you can hear various pieces from the future album Babel (2012) both lyrically and instrumentally. Plus, if you haven’t watched this or rewatched it in a while, you are sorely missing out!
From the Official Website when it was first released on YouTube:
Over the past year or so, the directorial duo FRED&NICK have accompanied Mumford & Sons on their various tours to capture through a lens the experiences of the band on the road.
You may well have seen these videos before, but perhaps not yet in their full-length form. Part I delves a little further into the roots and beginnings of the band and how, through various instruments, shared music tastes, friendships, and circumstances, Mumford & Sons came into being. Whilst Part II takes us through the landscapes and contrasting musical spheres of the India and US tours…and also the fondly remembered/vaguely infamous ‘Tasche tour.
Catch Whispers in the Dark in part 1 at 2:06, To Darkness, which would later become Broken Crown in part 2 at 2:17, Below My Feet in part 4 at :30, and Holland Road in part 5 at 4:29. Plus a ton more. See if you can spot them all ♥
PS: If you have been a long time fan and are overemotional (hi! me!) prepare for the feels and get some tissues
