Christopher Owens Announces His Departure From Girls

In a (somewhat tragic) Twitter announcement made on Monday, Christopher Owens announced he was leaving his band, Girls, which he formed in 2007 with bandmate Chet White. You can view the sequence of tweets below, in which Owens announced his departure. There has been no statement made from White at this time.

Girls has meant a lot to me over the past few years, putting out two full-length albums and one EP, all brilliantly visceral, beautifully written and composed. Owens has admitted that he will continue to make music, which can be considered the lone silver lining of the sad news.

RIP Girls (2007-2012)
