Mumford & Sons Say New Album Isn't 'Doom-Folk'


Mumford and Sons are talking about their sophomore album, the follow-up to their highly-successful Sigh No More, and are laughing off suggestions that it will be more "doom-folk."

Singer Marcus Mumford is calling comments that the band's new album would sound like "Black Sabbath meets Nick Drake" a joke.

"That was a joke to an American journalist who didn't understand the concept of sarcasm. I called Ted [Dwane, double bassist] and was like, 'Ted, what have you done? We spent our whole first album trying to avoid being pigeonholed!'"

Mumford, who also said the band would be aiming for "evolution, not a revolution" on the new record, said the recording process had taken longer than they expected and he wasn't sure if it would be released this year.
