"'They're truly inspirational in the way that conduct themselves and the way they see music,' Mumford said. 'For them, it's not a job. It's not a career. We feel like that, too, and having the opportunity to tour with them in Europe was sort of a dream come true for us. They never put their instruments down. They were always playing. We would be eating dinner and taking a rest, and they'd have these guitars that were always around, and they were just picking away in the corner and playing the whole time. That's the kind of attitude we aspire to maintain throughout our life as a band.'"
