Mumford & Sons win British Album of The Year
Mumford & Sons continue their stellar run across the world taking out British Album of The Year at last night’s BRIT Awards. It’s hot on the heels of their outstanding performance at The Grammys with Lifetime Achievement Award recipient and music legend Bob Dylan.
Australia was the first territory where Mumford & Sons saw their music truly connect, hitting the Number 1 spot of the triple j Hottest 100 last year, selling out their first club gigs before returning in August to steal the show at Splendour In The Grass and sell out multiple large venues. The people also showed their love for the band, giving them the ARIA for Best International Act in the inaugural publicly voted award at the 2010 ceremony. It was a fortuitous start for the four-piece who are now poised to join the ranks of the top bands in the world today.
Dew Process is pleased to announce that Mumford & Sons have just reached three times PLATINUM in Australia (210,000). This is in addition to the three times PLATINUM in the UK (900,000) and are nearing PLATINUM sales in the USA (more than one million).
Mumford & Sons will shortly commence work on their next album. With a bag of new songs under their arm, some of which were penned in Australia during rushed soundchecks, it is sure to be one of the most anticipated releases of 2011.
