PUNK IS IMPORTANT

This is not a Measure reunion.

An old lineup of us is going to play three old songs with/for Marco.

That said, this show is going to be amazing, and you should all come out and watch some great music that our awesome friend Marco helped put out into the world. 

If you’d like to see us play in actual bands, Fid, Joel and Mikey are in Pity Party, Tim is in Sun Puddles, Lauren is in Worriers and Mikey also plays in Now People, and sometimes the Dopamines, and sometimes every other band you probably like. Mike Regrets and BigA are in The Grains. High fives to anyone who can name the current bands of all 8,000 of our previous members.

That is all for now!

The Fest 10 and the second collection record!

After a few months on hiatus, we will be playing our very last show at this year’s The Fest 10 in Gainesville, Florida.  We play this coming Sunday, October 30 at 7:50pm at 8 Seconds.

We’re also excited to announce that No Idea will soon be releasing our second collection record “My Heart and the Real World: Another Collection of Standard Waits and Measurements”.  It is now available for pre-order through No Idea and if you order now, you’ll get a special bonus 7″ along with a screenprinted poster.  Those extra things are limited quantities, so if you’d like one, now’s your chance! Many thanks to No Idea for indulging us in making these records so complicated/fun. Click here for more info.

We’re very excited to be heading down to Florida soon.  Hope to see you there!

We’ve got an announcement to make…

After a number of lineup changes, the Measure increasingly became Fid and I finding ways to continue making music together. For a while, that was working, but this Fall I made the decision that I can’t continue with the band. There were a lot of personal reasons behind that and I realized that my heart just wasn’t in the project anymore. It’s not fair to anyone to try to keep going after that, especially when you’re expected to tour and write music and play shows and look like you’re having a good time. As far as parting ways goes, it’s a fairly amicable event and I’m glad that we’re ending the band on good terms and as friends.

We started the band when I was 20, and if you had told me then that I would get to travel around the country, put out over 18 records and play with some of my favorite bands because of it, I’d think you were out of your mind. It’s been a great privilege and I hope those experiences don’t end here. Fid and I will certainly be putting out music in other bands soon, so stay tuned.

We’re planning on releasing the next collection record of the more recent 7”s later in 2011 and intend on playing Fest 10 (Oct 28,29,30-2011) for one final show. There’s a possibility of another couple 7”s as well. Locally, we’ll be playing our last shows during the second weekend in April in Brooklyn and New Brunswick. Details to be announced soon.

We want to thank everyone who has been so helpful and supportive over the years. Especially those who have set up shows, given us places to stay and put out records for us (Don Giovanni, Kiss of Death, Salinas, Chunksaah, Ernest Jenning, Art of the Underground, Los Diaper, Team Science, Snuffy Smiles and No Idea) . We’re incredibly grateful to the awesome folks at No Idea who have both distro’d our records and put out a split 7” and LP for us, getting our music out there to a larger audience than we were able to do on our own. They’ve been one of our favorite labels for a long time and it was an honor to get to work with them so closely both as a label and as friends.

To Mike Regrets, Big A, J Nixon, Mikey Yannich, Joel Control, Tim Burke!, Chris Pierce, Gore, Joey Birds, DanO, CJ, and Marco Reosti: thanks for getting through this band with us.

punkrockneverstop,
Lauren + Fid
