The story’s almost over. The music begins to swell as the camera drifts to a final, poignant shot. Soon the screen will turn black; soon the credits will roll.
A year on from the release of their first album – a very busy 12 months in which they also released a Christmas album, a live album, and played countless shows and sessions – much like the brief encounters and doomed dalliances of our songs, Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert have decided it’s time to part ways. The heart can only hold so much.
Their goodbye comes in song: a final release, the brand new single CUT TO BLACK, which not only serves as an epilogue to the 2018 album HERE LIES THE BODY, but can also function as a romantic movie pub quiz (see below for answers). It’s the closing scene, the emotive denouement; the last words and parting shot. (The 7” vinyl single, released by Rock Action on August 16th, will also feature an exclusive b-side with download.)
To celebrate their uncoupling, they will play our final shows in the UK this year.
