Mumford & Sons Taking a ‘Considerable Amount of Time Off’

Mumford & Sons taking a break following ‘Babel’ tour

Mumford & Sons scored big with their sophomore studio album, “Babel.” The release debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart in 2012, pushing 600,000 copies its first week out, according to Nielsen Soundscan. All that chart success brought lots of touring for the band, and now, Mumford & Sons have wrapped their “Babel” tour up and plan to take some much-deserved time off.

“There won’t be any Mumford & Sons activities for the foreseeable future,” keyboardist Ben Lovett told Rolling Stone. “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.”

Lovett says he’s not sure how much time off the alternative folk band will take, but he does know that he’ll use the free time to get back together with his family and friends: a loving experience he’s lacked for the past year. “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,” he said. “I think that’s what’s in place at the moment, to do very little — especially when it comes to Mumford & Sons.”
