, “We want to deserve the place that we've got to and be good to the people who've been good to us. We're interested in travelling and sharing the music with as many people as possible - there are some places where Sigh No More
has done quite well that we haven’t actually been yet, like Japan - but I couldn't imagine it getting any bigger really. Then again, I said that after we sold out Shepherd’s Bush Empire so who knows.”
However, despite the bands huge rise to stardom, Ted does admit that he thinks Mumford and Sons have become as big as they should be. Dwayne claims that he does not really want the band to get any bigger than they are now, claiming that they are as big as they want to be.
He added, “We don't want to be as big as Oasis! I think we’re bigger than we ever wanted to be. I don’t think we want to get any bigger now.”
Mumford and Sons are currently top of the UK Album Chart with their new record Babel, which has become the fastest selling album of 2012 so far.
