Non è un annuncio di scioglimento ma solo un annuncio di una lunga pausa che durerà almeno un paio d’anni. Questa in sintesi la decisione degli svedesi Cult Of Luna dopo quasi tre lustri di attività, 6 album, 2 DVD, un live ed un EP. Prima dei saluti parteciperanno a maggio al Beyond the Redshift festival di Londra.
Primo annuncio: “The Beyond the redshift festival in London on may the 10th will be a very special show for Cult of Luna. It will mark the end of an era and after that we will slowly disappear before we reappear again in some form in some indefinite future. Because of that Klas will join us on stage for the last time and we will play a whole lot of old songs which we haven’t played for years or ever. We might ask for your help to choose songs. More on that later.”
Secondo annuncio con parziale rettifica: “We are not quitting. 2013 have been a very active year for us and neither do we want or think it is good to continue in that pace. We will not be a band that put out an album every 18-24 month anymore. We did that for almost 10 years when we were younger and were able to focus more on the music. After “Beyond the redshift” we might do a festival or two but after that we have nothing planned. Maybe we’ll release another album next year or maybe in a decade, we honestly don’t know. Sooner or later we will return in one form or another. Cult of Luna will not die. On another note, sooner or later we will go through our inbox and email. You will be answered”.
