Mumford & Sons To Take 'Considerable Amount Of Time Off'
Mumford & Sons finished their world tour on Friday and have decided to take a lengthy hiatus. After spending more than a year on the road, the British Grammy-winning band played their last show in Bonner Springs, Kansas, over the weekend.
The band has since revealed it will be a while before they perform in front of fans again.
Keyboardist Ben Lovett told Rolling Stone, "There won't be any Mumford & Sons activities for the foreseeable future following Friday's show... We have no idea (how long the hiatus will be). 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... 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."
Over the summer, the group's bassist, Ted Dwane, had emergency surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain. He recovered and has been back playing with the group ever since. The band won a Grammy Award for their latest album, "Babel."
