Mumford & Sons

Mumford & Sons want some time off, and so are going to take a breather from doing what it is that they do.

Breaking news of their decision via Rolling Stone, keyboardist Ben Lovett said he had “no idea” as to what the pause’s duration might be, adding: “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”.

He went on to say: “We’re just going to rest up. I don’t think we’ve had actually much time in the process to be with other people and living a life outside of the band. I think that’s what’s in place at the moment, to do very little – especially when it comes to Mumford & Sons”.

Fine by me. Meanwhile this article in the Guardian says more on the matter than I possibly could/would want to.
