Mumford and Sons to take a break

23 September 2013, 07:10 | Written by Ryan Thomas

Mumford and Sons keyboardist Ben Lovett told Rolling Stone in a recent interview that the band will be going on an indefinite hiatus following their Babel-supporting tour which ended last night.

Lovett said, “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.” He added, “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.”

The break comes after the band won several Grammies, including Album of the Year, and after the band was forced to cancel tour dates following bassist Ted Dwayne’s emergency brain surgery to remove a blood clot.
