Mumford and Sons are set to release their tour film Big Easy Express on DVD on July 24.

The film will also be available a month earlier via iTunes on June 26.

The documentary follows the band on their Railroad Revival Tour of the US in spring 2011, which saw them tour the country on a train made up of 15 vintage railcars with Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeroes and Old Crow Medicine Show.

The bands premiered the film at SXSW back in March, performing a number of songs after the movie aired at the Paramount Theatre in Austin, Texas. The film went on to win the SXSW film festival Audience Award.

Big Easy Express sees the three bands travelling 2,477 miles from Oakland to New Orleans and playing gigs along the side of the railway tracks. It was directed by Emmett Malloy, who was also behind the 2009 White Stripes film Under Great White Northern Lights.

"I think it was the best thing we've ever done," said Mumford and Sons frontman Marcus Mumford after the screening. "Watching it feels like going back in time." Scroll down to watch a trailer for the film.

Mumford and Sons hosted their second Gentlemen of the Road Stopover festival yesterday (June 9) in Galway and headlined RockNess Festival on Friday. They plan to release the follow up to 2009's 'Sigh No More' this September.
