Mumford And Sons Announce Hiatus

Concluding their tour in Kansas, after nearly four years of constant touring, Ben Lovett from the band has told Rolling Stone that they plan to take “considerable time off.”

“We’re going back to hanging out and having no commitments or pressure or anything like that,” he said. “It feels like the last week of school right now, before school holiday. I think everyone's excited about being free of schedules."

Mumford And Sons’ second album Babel was released last year and went to the top of the UK Album chart and the US Billboard 200. As well as taking the album around the world, the band have headlined Glastonbury and T In The Park as well as playing intimate shows as part of our Radio X Presents with Ford SYNC series.

When asked what the foreseeable future holds, Lovett said: “To do very little - especially when it comes to Mumford And Sons."
