Mumford & Sons Is Going on Hiatus

The bearded Grammy winners need some time off to sit out on the porch, loosen their suspenders, and drink a little moonshine out of a mason jar (or whatever these guys actually like to do). "There won’t be any Mumford & Sons activities for the foreseeable future," keyboardist Ben Lovett told Rolling Stone. Fans and haters want to know: How long is this foreseeable future? "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," said Lovett. "We’re just going to rest up." We hope they'll use the break to reach even greater heights of self-awareness.
