Mumford & Sons just performed its last show for the foreseeable future. The folk band announced its plans to go on an indefinite hiatus after performing its final tour date on Sept. 20 in Bonner Springs, Kans.

"There won't be any Mumford & Sons activities for the foreseeable future following Friday's show," keyboardist Ben Lovett tells Rolling Stone. "We have no idea [when we'll start up again]. 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."

During Mumford & Sons' rise to fame, the band won several Grammys, but also faced down a health scare with bassist Ted Dwane. It's been an eventful past year for sure, and Lovett seems happy to be taking the time off.

"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," he says.
