Moderat on upcoming hiatus: ‘It will be the end of an era’

Their upcoming Berlin show will be their last for a while...

Moderat have announced that their forthcoming show at Berlin's sprawling open-air venue Kindl-Bühne Wuhlheide on Saturday 2nd September will be their last for a while.

The trio explained why now was the right time to take a break from the project in a recent interview with LOLA.

"Moderat was planned as a recovery project from our individual ones," explained Moderat's Gernot Bronsert during the interview.

Apparat's Sacha Ring said it isn't the end for Moderat but doesn't know when they might work together again.

"It doesn't have a set timeframe, we don't yet know when we will continue with Moderat, and we also can't say 'if.' So this Berlin concert will be like the end of an era!"

Moderat's final show — for the time being, at least— will take place at Berlin's sprawling open-air venue Kindl-Bühne Wuhlheide on Saturday 2nd September.

"To play Wuhlheide was always our dream. We want it to be a grand finale," said Bronsert on why a final gig at Berlin's Wuhlheide was the right place to finish this chapter of Moderat.

The trio have released three studio albums under their collaborative Moderat moniker, with 2016's 'III' being their most recent.

DJ Mag spoke to the trio last year to talk about the end of 50 Weapons, the future for Monkeytown Records and the pressures of performing live.
