Have Mumford & Sons have broken up?

Ok, so he was joking but we did get worried for a second! It turns out Marcus Mumford, lead singer of the band, is simply sick of people asking him if the group split following a few months break.

Talking to XFM in the UK, Marcus spoke about the break the band have taken since their last tour saying: “It’s 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.”

We’re sure Marcus is using the break to spend time with his wife Carey Mulligan , who he married in 2012.

Don’t keep us waiting too long – we need new Mumford & Sons in our lives!
