Within the past year, Mumford & Sons have become one of the biggest success stories in rock. On the strength of their two big singles – the joyous "The Cave" and "Little Lion Man," which features the irresistibly bleep-worthy refrain "I really fucked it up this time, didn’t I, my dear?" – their first album, Sigh No More, has sold more than 1.6 million copies, including a million this year alone. In the August 4, 2011 issue of Rolling Stone, on stands now, the year's biggest new band takes us along for the ride.
