Scout is the only extended play (EP) by Canadian rock band Calpurnia. It was released on 15 June 2018 through Royal Mountain, Transgressive and paradYse. It was also the band's only release, as they disbanded a year afterwards.


Calpurnia signed to the Toronto-based independent record label Royal Mountain Records in November 2017, beginning recording an unnamed extended play, with Cadien Lake James from the American indie rock band, Twin Peaks.[1] In January 2018, the band played at the Rough Trade shop in New York City, where they debuted "Louie", "Wasting Time", "Greyhound" and "City Boy" from the then-unannounced EP.[2]

After releasing the second single, "Louie", in April 2018, the band officially announced Scout and its release date.[3]
