Beyond the Redshift

Is This the End for Cult of Luna?

Swedish post-metallers bid us farewell. Maybe.
 

Galaxies separate, the universe expands and more and more cosmological redshifts occur. As the wavelength of light broadens, we are left more alone than ever by the growing sidereal distances. What is there beyond the redshift? Swedish post-metallers Cult of Luna have been wondering this very question for months and they have come to the conclusion that the future is, well, uncertain. At least for them. The ensemble behind brilliant albums like “The Beyond” (again!), “Salvation” and “Vertikal” will go on an indefinite hiatus later on this year, but before that happens, they will curate a one-day festival in London on 10th May.
  
Amplifier, Bossk, God Is An Astronaut Jesu and many more will perform in three venues, all located within walking distance from each other. No more Cult of Luna, then? Possibly (not). Nobody knows what lies Beyond the Redshift.
