13611_10153189577923793_5290375909036202574_nPopular UK folk rock band Mumford & Sons follow up to 2012’s Babel finally has a name. Wilder Mind will be the bands third ful length studio album and it will be released on May 4th through Island Records and Universal Music.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the band confirmed that the new album will feature a more electronic feel then any of their past albums. Frontman Marcus Mumford had this to say on the subject, “We felt that doing the same thing, or the same instrumentation again, just wasn’t for us, we’ve got a broader taste in music than just that.” Added bassist Ted Dwane, “None of us had really any interest in doing a sort of Babel 2. It was always going to be different.

The announcement of the new album and tour dates marks the end of the bands hiatus which they took in 2013 after extensively touring behind Babel. They’ll return to the stage for a headlining appearance at Bonnaroo, and have also announced a new round of Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers with Foo Fighters, The Flaming Lips, and My Morning Jacket.
