Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert announce final release

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 their songs, they have decided it’s time to part ways. The heart
can only hold so much.

Our goodbye comes in song: our final release, the brand new single CUT TO BLACK, which not
only serves as an epilogue to our 2018 album HERE LIES THE BODY. It’s their closing scene, their emotive denouement; their 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. Pre order HERE

To celebrate their uncoupling, they will play their final shows in the UK this year. Friends and fans can
wave them off at the following locations:

15 – Cluny 2, Newcastle
16 – Omeara, London
17 – Green Man Festival, Crickhowell
18 – The Crescent, York

19 – Gardyne Theatre, Dundee
20 – Summerhall, Edinburgh
21 – Music Hall, Aberdeen (True North Festival, supporting The Twilight Sad)
22 – St. Luke’s, Glasgow

The lights will soon fade up. You may now turn your phone back on. Please remember to put your
waste in the bins provided. Thank you and goodnight.
