It’s the end of the road for Mumford and Sons! Six months after the band announced they were going on hiatus for “a considerable amount of time,” banjo player Winston Marshall says the band will be hanging up their banjos for good.
Mumford & Sons fans, brace yourself. The band’s banjo player Winston Marshall opened up on March 26 and revealed that he and the “Sons” will not be getting back together after going on hiatus in Sept. 2013. Winston said he’s open to doing a reunion tour, but for now the band has decided to officially call it quits.
Mumford & Sons — Banjo Player Says ‘It’s Over’
“I wish I had something to say about Mumford & Sons. It was a good time,” Marshall told Vulture, before resolutely adding, “it’s over.”
And when Winston was asked if he was really serious, he answered in the affirmative. “Yeah. We had a good time, though, you know. It was good.” Still, Winston says there’s a chance the band could reunite for a future reunion tour. “Well, I dunno, f**king, that would be awesome. But, you know, it is what it is, I guess.”
Shocking as it is to hear Mumford & Sons will not be around anymore, the truly shocking part of the interview happened when Winston, a banjo player, revealed what he really thought about the instrument. “F**k the banjo. I f**king hate the banjo.” Wow — no wonder Mumford couldn’t last!
Mumford & Sons Go On Hiatus
And the signs of a breakup may have been there all along! Back in September, they announced there wouldn’t be any Mumford & Sons activities for the foreseeable future.
“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,” Ben Lovett told Rolling Stone. “It feels like the last week of school right now, before school holiday when you’re in high school.”
