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)

Now it seems that Wolfhard has already begun his new project, a band called The Aubreys. NME reports that very little is known about the new group other than their debut song, “Getting Better(otherwise),” is featured on the soundtrack to Wolfhard’s upcoming film, The Turning.

For a pretty much unknown band, they are amidst a pretty solid lineup on the soundtrack, including big names such as Courtney Love, Mitski, Soccer Mommy, and Warpaint. It is unclear why the 16-year-old actor split from his band of two years, but it seems like he isn’t wasting any time moving on.
