"Mumford and Sons have confirmed that their new record does not feature the banjo."
More simply awesome Youtube comments...
Call me when the banjo is back..
Well it appears you play the banjo so I like you too!
LONG LIVE THE BANJO!
There gonna be at Bonnaroo this year, If I don't get 1 banjo song I will be highly pissed
In this one, it sounds like the old Mumford but instead of banjos, it's electric guitars. The formula is the same, they are just evolving. Every band evolve, just Mumford did it way drastically than everyone else.
You don't fix what's not broken. Miss the banjo,i hope they bring it back at some point
I'm trying to embrace this Wilder Mind, and the change, and no banjo, but this isn't trademark, recognizable Mumford.
im so disappointed..where'd the banjo folkiness go
iam your HUGE HUGE FAN , I just dont wanna believe that it is true. i cant even listen it again. i cant feel you, i cant feel anythin...
idk i kinda like it. yeah no banjo but they cant have the same banjo rhythm in every song they record! maybe they wanted a different theme this time around.
for the douchebag that said their old stuff is more soulful eat a dick dont fuckin tell me any artist as passionate as these guys or any other group doesnt put everything they have into it just because its not more quiet with acoustic instruments doesnt mean it doesnt have the same heart they put into everything else
Mumford getting rid of the banjo is like Bob plugging in. You don't see the vision. Don't be the fan booing at Newport.
WHERE'S. THE. BANJO.
They should have some kind of electric banjo to mix their old style with the new style.
And finally, this hilarious/sad little exchange...
