Mumford & Sons Not Breaking Up

Mumford & Sons  are on hiatus but are not breaking up -- despite what banjo player  Winston Marshall  said Wednesday night.

At an after-party for the documentary  Mistaken for Strangers  last night, when he was asked about Mumford, Marshall told  Vulture , "It was a good time [but] it's over."

After Vulture ran with the story,  Billboard  cleared up the mistake with the following statement: "Multiple reps for the band confirm to  Billboard  that Marshall's words...were meant in jest." 

After spouting the fake breakup news to Vulture, Marshall ranted, "F*** the banjo. I f***ing hate the banjo," and then said he had abandoned music for the catering business.

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