After more than six years and many lineup changes, The Measure [SA] have called it quits. Guitarist/vocalist Lauren Denitzio explained:
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.
The band is promising a collection of their last run of 7-inches later in 2011 and are promising to perform at The Fest X in October.
