Mumford & Sons have released a new music video for their single, "Hopeless Wanderer."  As there wasn't enough hype around the GRAMMY award winning album Babel, the latest video stepped it up.  The music video for "Hopeless Wanderer" is unlike any other by the band, who is actually absent from the video.  The video features comedians and actors Ed Helms, Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Will Forte.  The comedic foursome steps in as Mumford & Sons performing the music for "Hopeless Wanderer."  Mumford & Sons will be performing at First Niagara Pavilion on August 29.  You can watch the video for "Hopeless Wanderer" below.
