    Sigh No More: Mumford & Sons Have Not Broken Up

    Sometimes too much Babeling leads to confusion.

    Despite certain comments that Mumford & Sons banjo player Winston Marshall made to Vulture in a recent interview, the Grammy-winning band has not broken up.

    "I can confirm that he was joking, as he was about catering the party," a rep for the English folk-rock group tells E! News. "The band has not broken up."

    We understand the confusion, however. Marshall told a Vulture reporter at the Mistaken for Strangers afterparty, when asked about the band, "It's over."

    And then Vulture told two friends, and so on, and so on...

    "Yeah, we had a good time, though, you know. It was good," Marshall continued when pressed for more detail.

    Asked about a possible reunion tour, he said, "Well, I dunno, f--king that would be awesome. But, you know, it is what it is, I guess."

    As far as the catering remark goes, Marshall also apparently claimed that he had catered that night's affair.

    "Google it! I'm a modern-day renaissance man," he cracked.

    Not that Mumford & Sons breaking up for good would've been a huge stretch.

    Following their Album of the Year win for Babel  at the 2013 Grammy Awards, the four-man group, fronted by Carey Mulligan's hubby, Marcus Mumford, canceled a number of appearances after bassist Ted Dwane underwent emergency surgery for a blood clot in his brain. They then announced a full-on hiatus in September, telling Rolling Stone there would be "no Mumford & Sons activities for the forseeable future."
