"Mumford And Sons played their last tour date in support of 2012 sophomore album Babel on Friday night (September 20th) in Bonner Springs, Kansas, and the band told Rolling Stone that they are about to embark on a long break. Keyboard player Ben Lovett explained prior to the gig, "There won't be any Mumford & Sons activities for the foreseeable future following Friday's show."
Asked how long the hiatus would last, Lovett said, "We have no idea. 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. It feels like the last week of school right now, before school holiday when you're in high school. The atmosphere on the road is one of . . . I think everyone's excited about being free of schedules."

So they're gonna go blow their nest eggs and then have a reunion album and tour and make three times as much. Great.
As someone else said in another thread, an "indefinite hiatus" these days usually means around 18 months. Last year the Foo Fighters said they were going on an indefinite hiatus and they have a new album coming out next year.

While I am very burnt on them due to the ungodly amount of radio play they got and the mediocrity of there 2nd album, they were pretty great in 2011 and would love to see them again, just not if it takes a headlining spot which it probably would
