Q: What's better than Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, and Old Crow Medicine Show touring together?

A: Touring together in vintage railroad cars, natch.

Sounds like a stretch of the imagination, but the three bands are going on the road in April to do just that.

Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, and Old Crow Medicine Show just announced they're touring together by traveling only in vintage railcars over the course of a week through the Southwest. 

The bands will play concerts at six outdoor locations along the route, beginning April 21 in Oakland.

The Railroad Revival train is 1,500 feet long and consists of 15 vintage railcars from the 1950s and '60s, pulled by two locomotives. The bands will eat, sleep and record on the train as they travel across the American Southwest, bringing their collaborative vision to fans from California to New Orleans. The bands will have equal billing and equal time onstage, in an environment that encourages creativity and cross-pollination. The entire tour will be the focus of a documentary that captures the spirit of the journey and gives intimate insights into the creative process.

What inspired the Railroad Revival Tour? Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros said, "From hobos to the wild west, trains have always been a fascination of mine. This tour is going to be rad."
