Mumford and Sons Will Take a Break!

Share this with friends:

I still can't help but think of Mumford the Magician from Sesame Street everytime I hear a Mumford and Sons tune.  Which means everytime I hear Little Lion Man, I can imagine someone yelling "ALA PEANUT BUTTER SANDWICHES" in the background of some seedy english pub.   My world is awesome.

 

But it looks like Mumford and Sons are taking a little time off. The British folk-rockers made the last tour stop behind their Grammy-winning album "Babel" this past Friday in Kansas, and now keyboardist Ben Lovett tells "Rolling Stone" there are no Mumford & Sons activities scheduled "for the foreseeable future." Lovett says they have no idea how long the break might be, adding that he and his bandmates are just excited to be "free of schedules." The past year has been a dramatic one for the Mumfords. It began with their Grammy win for Album of the Year back in February, and reached a scary point after bassist Ted Dwane had emergency brain surgery that left him on the sidelines for a few weeks. Dwane made a full recovery, but he says the band could definitely use a "little rest." 

 

Don't worry, I'm sure Phillip Phillips and The Lumineers will keep the folksy types happy in the meantime.
