An international tour? A world tour? A recipe for disaster? Well, I’m not sure what you call a tour that takes a band from the UK to India, Australia, Canada, the US and then back to the UK, but whatever you call it, it’s pretty damn ambitious. Having said that, I hope that the lads from Mumford & Sons have their “papers” in order before they hit the road in December, because the British folk revivalists are set to headline a show at the Bowery Ballroom on February 15, 2010 (Buy Tickets). With only two four scheduled North American dates in February, I’d imagine we’ll see a few more select cities announced not before long.

In other related Mumford & Sons news, in a recent BBC 6 Music interview Marcus Mumford let it slip that Markus Dravs, who engineered their debut album, Sigh No More, is currently working on the third Arcade Fire record. AF fans may recall that Dravs also worked on the Montreal group’s last album, Neon Bible.

Mumford & Sons were last here in October during CMJ, you can find some more pictures from their Mercury Lounge showcase and more world tour dates after the jump.
