Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert

Summerhall - Dissection Room


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, they 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.
