No word on how long the band will take a hiatus
UK folk rock group Mumford and Sons made headlines over the weekend when they announced that the group was going on hiatus for the “foreseeable future” to allow their members to take a break.
Keyboardist Ben Lovett told Rolling Stone that “There won’t be any Mumford & Sons activities for the foreseeable future following Friday’s show,” referring to their final stop of their tour in Bonner Springs, KS on September 20th.
“We have no idea [how long we will take off]. 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.”
This announcement comes after an eventful year that including the band winning several Grammy Awards and a health scare for bassist Ted Dwane that postponed several North American tour dates including a headlining slot at this summer’s Bonnaroo Arts and Music Festival.
