The Measure (SA) 2004 - 2011

The Measure (SA) have announced their breakup. As a big part of our label family, we will miss them as a band sorely but will be looking forward to inevitable future projects from them. We will keep you posted with information regarding a last show.

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.

-Lauren Measure
