Mumford and Sons have announced plans to take “a considerable amount of time off”.
The band completed their tour promoting second album ‘Babel’ in Bonner Springs, Kansas this past weekend. Speaking to sources earlier today, keyboard player Ben Lovett revealed: “There won’t be any Mumford & Sons activities for the foreseeable future.”
When asked exactly how much time the band was planning to take time off, Lovett replied:
“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.”
Mumford & Sons released their debut album ‘Sigh No More’ in 2009 and followed it with last year’s ‘Babel’, which debuted at Number One on both the UK and the US charts.
The band have toured extensively in support of both albums and delivered headline sets at Glastonbury and T in The Park earlier this summer.
