"It’s bittersweet to share this news..."

Vancouver group Calpurnia have split up.

The band coalesced around Finn Wilfhard, the actor known for his starring role in cult television show Stranger Things.

Becoming a sensation in their own right, Calpurnia were profiled in a Clash digital cover feature - find the interview HERE.

Sadly it seems that the group have now split, with a number of new projects planned from the individual musicians.

In a note on Instagram the band wrote:

"It’s bittersweet to share this news, but we want to let you know that our time playing together as Calpurnia has come to an end. We are extremely grateful for the support we’ve received over the past few years. What seemed to us like an unimaginable reality came to be, and we have been thrilled to share the ride with you."

Calpurnia add: "We’re all going to be starting fresh chapters in our lives: new projects, new music, new creative ventures, and new experiences to come."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Dear Friends, It’s bittersweet to share this news, but we want to let you know that our time playing together as Calpurnia has come to an end. We are extremely grateful for the support we’ve received over the past few years. What seemed to us like an unimaginable reality came to be, and we have been thrilled to share the ride with you. It’s been an honour and a gift to meet, work with, and play for so many wonderful people. We feel lucky and hugely grateful for the many fantastic opportunities that came our way. We’re all going to be starting fresh chapters in our lives: new projects, new music, new creative ventures, and new experiences to come. One last giant thank you to our friends at Royal Mountain Records, our manager Bix, our families, and especially our amazing fans. We’ll never forget you! -Calpurnia (@mennovers)
