Mumford & Sons returned to Saturday Night Live for the first time in three years last night, performing songs from their forthcoming album Wilder Mind. If there were any doubts, based on the singles, that the formerly banjo-toting crew had transformed for their latest release, this performance should dispel them. Both “The Wolf” and “Believe” showcased the leather-clad Mumfords soaring through electric guitar-led instrumentals, soaring and roiling like all manner of post-U2 pop-rockers. You can catch the performance of “The Wolf” up above and “Believe” down below. Wilder Mind will hit stores in full on May 4.
