, Staff

Mumford & Sons have announced plans for a tour of North American this fall. The band will make a stop in Massachusetts for show at the House of Blues on Thursday, November 11. Tickets are now on sale now through Live Nation for for $20. Opening the show will be the experimental bluegrass outfit Cadillac Sky and London rocker King Charles.

The English folk rockers, who recently performed at the Newport Folk Festival, are touring in support of their debut album, Sigh No More. The album, which was produced by Markus Dravs (Arcade Fire, Bjork), was released in February to the United States after its original release date last October. Sigh No More has been powered by the success of hit single “Little Lion Man”.

Last month, Sigh No More was nominated for the 2010 Barclaycard Mercury Music Prize, an annual music prize awarded for the best album from the United Kingdom or Ireland. The band has emerged as one of the favorites for this year’s award, which will be announced on September 7. The Mercury Prize is often awarded to bands outside of the mainstream that have yet to appear atop the charts.

Cadillac Sky will be touring in support of Letters in the Deep, which hit stores in June, and was produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach.
