Mumford & Sons have told Q that just because Prime Minister David Cameron has declared himself a fan they're not Tories.
Speaking in an exclusive cover story interview in the new issue of Q, out today (30 July), the band insist they are not politically, and certainly not Conservative supporters despite their apparently posh image.
"We don't really care [Cameron's a fan]," explains lead singer Marcus Mumford. "We never get pissed off when anyone says they like our music."
"There's probably worse people who like our music," adds Winston Marshall, "Well I dunno [laughs]. What's more annoying is to be associated with any political party, particularly if you don't like those political parties.
"As a band, I don't think we've ever talked about politics. I wouldn't say I'd know what any of these three would vote in an election."
Get Q326 now for the full interview, including the band's views on fame, their near death experiences, performing with Bob Dylan and Bruce Spring Steen and much more.
