Calpurnia is calling it quits. The four-piece band, fronted by Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard, took to Instagram to announce the news, followed by a lengthy thank you note for the support they received in the years:

“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”

The Vancouver-based indie rock outfit formed in 2017 and was featured in HYPEBEAST’s New Gen: Spring 2019 list. Calpurnia released their first only EP Scout in June 2018 via Royal Mountain Records, followed by the standalone single “Cell” earlier this 2019. Prior to their disbanding, they also appeared in the music video for Weezer‘s cover of “Take on Me.”

Elsewhere in music, Famous Dex and Wiz Khalifa have shared the “Proofread” visual.
