It's news so many of us Mumford & Sons fans have been waiting for -- the band has booked a new tour and they're coming to the Lone Star State.

The 25-show North American tour, called "Summer Stampede," includes Mumford & Sons' Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers in August and September, but before those shows, one of the world's hottest bands will be making stops all across the continent.

Most importantly, that includes four shows in Texas. Mumford & Sons will play back-to-back shows June 8 and 9 at Austin 360 Amphitheater in Austin; at Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas on June 11; and June 12 at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands.

Mumford & Sons will be supported on the tour by Michael Kiwanuka (who most recently opened for Alabama Shakes) and Mystery Jets.

Tickets for the Mumford & Sons headline shows (no festivals) will be available as part of an invitation-only presale online, which will begin Monday, March 25, exclusively at http://invitation.mumfordandsons.com.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public Friday, April 5.
