Calpurnia announce debut UK shows and share Weezer cover

The version of ‘Say It Ain’t So’ appears on their new Spotify Singles release.

Fresh from releasing their ‘Scout’ EP back in June, Calpurnia have announced details of their first ever UK shows!

The band will play Manchester and London alongside a handful of mainland EU dates in November and December.

Finn Wolfhard and co have also shared a new Spotify Singles session in which they take on a cover of Weezer classic ‘Say It Ain’t So’ alongside ‘Scout’ highlight ‘Wasting Time’.

Speaking of the cover, they say: “Inspired by Weezer’s triumphant cover of Toto’s Africa, we decided to take on Say It Ain’t So, a fan-favourite song on the console game Rock Band. We played that song so many times in the game it inspired us to actually learn how to play it as a band! We also hope people enjoy a different take on our tune ‘Wasting Time’, which is the second track on our debut EP Scout. Recording this live session was a fantastic way to help us get ready for our upcoming European and Southern US tours, and a great way to pay homage to a band that’s changed music many times over.”
