Mumford and Sons take ‘indefinite hiatus’ from music

Grammy-Award-winning band Mumford and Sons have revealed that they are planning to take an ‘indefinite hiatus’ from music, after their Babel US tour finished on September 21st. Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine, keyboard player Ben Lovett said: “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… 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.” Mumford and Sons’ second album, BABEL, was released in September 2012 and won the Grammy for ‘Album of the Year’. The band closed this year’s Glastonbury Festival weeks after bassist Ted Dwane was taken to hospital to remove a blood clot on the brain. They have been on tour since the album’s release, and have spoken about the need to take some time out to relax. The band featured as Maverick’s cover story in January/February 2013.
