Mumford and Sons have spent the last 20 months touring the hell out of their third full-length, Wilder Mind. The London outfit are well deserving of a break, but they’ve got one more run of shows scheduled to close out the year. Today they’ve revealed the Austin 5000 tour, eight shows set to take place around their headlining spots at Austin City Limits.

The new dates kick off September 26th in Salt Lake City following the band’s appearance at Life is Beautiful. They’ll stop in Colorado on their way down to Texas, and have slotted shows in New Mexico, Arizona, and California before their return trip to Austin.

The folk rockers have also teamed up with Senegalese vocalist Baaba Maal, Malaawi duo The Very Best, and Cape Town’s Beatenberg to release a new collaborative EP entitled Johannesburg on June 17th. Mumford and the band recorded the five tracks alongside the African musicians during the band’s tour through South Africa. Pre-orders are going on here, and you can listen to the track “There Will Be Time” underneath the band’s tour schedule.
