This morning Mumford and Sons launched a very cryptic, very strange new teaser video title “The Troubled Boys School”:
There’s a lot of speculation being thrown around as to what the video is teasing – the blogosphere is alternatively reporting that it’s either to do with the redesign of their website, a tour announcement (which is in line with the US dates that were announced today) or something to do with Mumford and Sons’ much anticipated second album. We reckon it’s probably something to do with all three
There are a few clues to be had though. If you watch the video you’ll notice quite a number of nautical flags scattered throughout it. The good folks at the unofficial Mumford & Sons Blog have decoded a couple of these for us.
The flags that appear behind the band (in the screenshot above)? They spell TOUR
The flags that appear under the Mumford and Sons Gentlemen of the Road Symbol at the end of the video (below)? They spell BABEL
There are more flags seen in the video and I’m sure less obvious clues as well. We’ll let you know as soon as we hear. In the meantime – happy clue solving!
