“There Won’t be Any Mumford & Sons Activities for the Foreseeable Future”

Buzzkill for anyone hoedowning in their kitchen on this beautiful Saturday afternoon: Mumford & Sons are on hiatus. The band spoke to Rolling Stone and broke the news.

“There won’t be any Mumford & Sons activities for the foreseeable future,” explained keyboardist Ben Lovett, who couldn’t put a timeframe on the band’s break. “We have no idea. We just know we’re going to take a considerable amount of time off and just go back to hanging out and having no commitments or pressure or anything like that. It feels like the last week of school right now, before school holiday when you’re in high school. The atmosphere on the road is one of… I think everyone’s excited about being free of schedules.”

Say what you will about Mumford and their hoedowns, but the band is one of the hardest working in the business when it comes to playing live, and their success in the music industry’s morphing economy is a direct result of that.
