Mumford & Sons spent the summer months of 2015 touring in support of their new album Wilder Mind, and the folk troupe will once again hit the road in April 2016 for a month's worth of U.S. arena gigs. This time, however, the band will concentrate on the middle third of the country with their An Arrow Through the Heartland Tour, kicking off April 3rd in Houston, Texas.

True to its name, Mumford & Sons won't travel west of Dallas and east of Charlotte for their upcoming 15-date jaunt. "Touring the United States of America in many ways fulfills the childhood dream of what touring might be like," the band's Ben Lovett said in a statement. "Rolling from one great city to the next, each with its own personality and uniqueness whilst remaining familiar enough at the same time. Waking up every morning with a conversation amongst us about who wants to visit 'that' bookshop or 'the' ultimate music shop or whatever the various cities had to offer."

The first leg of An Arrow Through the Heartland Tour, which will feature singer-songwriter Blake Mills as opening act, will conclude April 23rd in Indianapolis, Indiana. Nearly two months later, Mumford & Sons have also booked a June 15th show in Saratoga Springs, New York. Check out the itinerary below.
