Its members just quit their day jobs this month so they can go on tour.<p>You'll see in this performance why they're bound to connect with new fans on the road.

Marcus Mumford, Country Winston Marshall, Ben Lovett and Ted Dwane spent the last three years traveling the world and playing to increasingly huge crowds as their popularity bloomed.<p>The group took its time and got it right on <em>Babel</em> (the guys pronounce it "BAY-bull"), fleshing out the lyrically rich, melodic tunes with lively arrangements.
