Representatives for Mumford & Sons have responded to reports suggesting the band has split for good, insisting banjo player Winston Marshall was joking when he said the group was "over" in a recent interview.
The Grammy winners announced a hiatus in September (13), but Marshall had fans worrying about their future when he hinted the break was permanent during a chat with Vulture.com.
He said, "It was a good time. It's over."
The musician also suggested he was done with playing the banjo, adding, "F**k the banjo. I f**king hate the banjo."
But now reps for the group have clarified his remarks, insisting they were made in jest.
A spokesman tells Billboard.com that Marshall was joking, and fans should not take the story at face value.
The band is still on a break following keyboard player Ben Lovett's 2013 announcement, in which he said, "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."
