BrooklynVegan presents the premiere of Calculator's video for "Overture", a song off the LA band's recent full-length, This Will Come To Pass.

Calculator's heartfelt post-hardcore nods to elders like Rites of Spring and Saetia, or in the words of BrooklynVegan, "LA's Calculator make a similar kind of post-hardcore/screamo to fellow Cali bands Touche Amore or the now-defunct Comadre; raw, honest, and uncompromising." In praise of the "Overture" video, BV reports, "The black-and-white video splices images of the band recording with a David Lynch-ian bathtub scene..."

With the full-length album out now, Melotov Records prepares for its grand reissue of another Calculator release: the out-of-print 2010 album, These Roots Grow Deep, a collection of the band's early work. Due out August 27th on Melotov, the reissue is a limited pressing of 500 white vinyl LPs featuring all new artwork. Recorded between 2007-2009, the songs on the album were tracked at various locations including The Earth Capital in LA with producer Alex Estrada (Nails, Touche Amore, Xibalba).
