Have Mumford & Sons - some of the nicest guys in rock- been accused of human trafficking? The answer is yes (though it's not quite as bad as is sounds)
Last year, during the 'Big Easy Express' train tour with Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros the UK band was stopped by Texas police (shocker) who had reason to believe that they were sumggling people over the Mexican border
Ted Dwane - bass player for Mumford recently told the story:
'In Marfa, Texas, we were pulled over by police waiting for us with cars across the track. They accused us of stowing people away on the train."
"It was edgy, but the gig eventually went ahead. We swelled the town about fivefold and ended up playing soccer with the police."
So it turns out they likely weren't smuggling people across the border in between foot stomps and banjo licks - however, we sure do like the idea of darker side of Mumford & Sons becoming international criminals
The band new album 'Babel' is out on September 24.
