Calculator call it quits, issue statement.

Well, the cat is out of the bag. Very sad to say that calculator. is calling it quits. We are so happy that we had a chance to work with them and put out two incredible releases with them. Pick up their final records here and stream a new song at BrooklynVegan. Please be sure to go to their last shows if you can!



Here is the statement from the band:

“Chris, Nik, Ramez, Chris, and I started playing music together as Calculator in late 2007. To be exact, our first practice with all 5 of us was Halloween day of that year (10/31/07). The oldest of us at the time was 16, and the youngest 15. 7 years later, we are well into our 20s. As all of you know, a lot of shit changes in the time period of 7 years…. and especially the period of time transitioning from childhood to adulthood. For all 5 of us, Calculator was our crutch and our means for dealing with that. The shittiest and most of all, the most fun part of life for any American youth. We are all thankful for each other for all that we’ve experienced and had.

As a band we wrote and released 2 E.P’s, 2 splits, one compiled 12″ of all of our early recordings, and one full length 12″ LP, This Will Come to Pass. We went on 2 full U.S tours, one East Coast tour, a West Coast Tour, numerous Los Angeles and Bay Area trips, and one tour through Japan. We are thankful for everyone who helped us achieve this… It’s really crazy when you think about it.

All of our progress and commitment to the band was managed in spite of the huge individual plans, goals, and desires each of us have for our lives. Playing together and working on music under the name Calculator was hard and trying, but incredibly awesome in the end. Well worth the result. We loved each other, and almost as importantly, we loved playing music with each other that much. However, the time has come where we just can’t manage to hold together those fragments of our own lives in the form of Calculator. Things are getting more and more complicated, to the point where we feel we can’t do Calculator as an entity enough justice it deserves. None of us are quitting music or anything like that… you just won’t see us as Calculator for too much longer.

We are going to play two more shows on Jan 2nd and 3rd, and we do have a final E.P called CALC coming out on Count Your Lucky Stars Records. You can stream the record below and please be sure to order the record directly from CYLS… and also pick up a copy of This Will Come Pass from them. The body of work released on CYLS really summed up everything we sought to do with Calculator both aesthetically and sonically.

The details of the last two shows:
- Jan 2nd at 1234go! in Oakland, CA
with Leer, Lil Dowager, and Renais
- Jan 3rd at Bridgetown DIY in the LA area
with La Bella, Ten Thousand Leagues, 1 More TBA
