So they can have a "big comeback tour"...
Marcus Mumford doesn't mind playing a little bit with the minds of curious music fans. The Mumford & Sons frontman told XFM that when asked if the band has broken up he says they have, so they "can have a big comeback tour next year."
Mumford made the quip on the show when discussing what the band members have been up to since they announcd a lengthy time-off period in September, noting, "Its been quite nice just to have a few months to chill out. Everyone keeps asking if we've broken up as a band, which I love, so I keep saying 'yes', and then we can have a big comeback tour next year!"
He noted that banjo player Winston Marshall has been busy, snoting, "Winston went to Nashville and set up a band, played six gigs, recorded a live show and then they broke up, citing artistic differences at the end of the night, after playing six gigs in one night. Apparently they were rubbish, apparently they were genuinely rubbish. But they're really proud of it, because they love that kind of thing."
