Mumford & Sons banjo player Winston Marshal has recently confessed about the group being a bit more on the soft side. In an exclusive interview with The Sun, the banjoist wasn't afraid to say that the London-based four-piece isn't exactly consisted of 'hard men.'
"We're not, like, hard men. We're emotional. We're not rock'n'roll. If AC/DC apologized, that'd be the end of their career. But someone doesn't say hello to us and we're like, 'I cannot believe the gall!'"
The group's frontman Marcus Mumford went on to state that the band isn't too fond of the latest technology, admitting he hasn't quite worked out how to use his cell phone yet.
"Every day I use my phone and I have no idea how it works. Whereas I see an acoustic guitar played with gusto and I understand just how it works."
The band is currently busy touring to promote their latest studio effort, "Babel," released back in September 2012 via Island Records. With 159,000 copies sold within the first week, it became the UK's fastest selling album of 2012, topping both the UK Albums Chart and the Billboard 200 list.
The group's singer has recently also revealed a collaboration with Justin Timberlake with whom he will work on the soundtrack for the new Coen Brothers movie called "Inside Llewyn Davis."
