Hyped British folk act Mumford & Sons have announced a full New Zealand tour that will take in dates in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch in November.

On their first visit to New Zealand, the Little Lion Man hitmakers will perform at Auckland's Vector Arena on November 2, Wellington's Town Hall on November 4 and the CBS Canterbury Arena in Christchurch on November 6.

November is fast becoming a packed month of music, with shows by Radiohead, The Black Keys, Grizzly Bear and Coldplay already scheduled.

Tickets go on sale on July 9 through Ticketmaster and Ticketek, and include the option of pre-ordering Mumford & Sons' new album.

The yet-to-be-titled record, due for a September release, is the follow-up to 2009's mega-successful Sigh No More, which hit No. 1 in New Zealand and won the Brit Award for Best British Album in 2011.

It included the singles The Cave, Winter Winds, Roll Away Your Stone and Little Lion Man, the video for which has had 32 million views on YouTube.
