UPDATE: Mumford & Sons Banjo Player Joking About Band Break-Up
By Antoinette Bueno
UPDATE: Billboard reports that multiple reps for the band have said that Marshall's words Wednesday night at a "Mistaken for Strangers" after-party in New York City were "meant in jest," and that the band is not breaking up.
After news broke in September that critically acclaimed English folk rock band Mumford & Sons were taking a break, banjo player Winston Marshall confirms to Vulture in a new interview that the band has actually broken up for good.
"I wish I had something to say about Mumford & Sons. It was a good time," Marshall says. "It's over. We had a good time, though, you know. It was good."
Aside from achieving commercial success, Mumford & Sons have received a number of accolades for their music, including the 2013 Album of the Year award at the Grammys for their best-selling album Babel.
