Christopher Owens Leaves Girls

    Christopher Owens, best known and frontman and primary songwriter for the band Girls, has announced he is leaving the band. In a series of tweets, Owens wrote the following:

    Dear all, This may come as a surprise to many & has been an issue of much thought for me. My decision was not easy to make. I am leaving Girls. My reasons at this time are personal. I need to do this in order to progress. I will continue to write & record music. More will be announced soon. I thank you all for everything. Sincerely–Christopher

    It’s pretty hard to see the band continue without Owens. However, there is no word yet whether bassist and producer JR White will dissolve the band or continue under the Girls name. We will keep close tabs on this as the story unfolds. [Pitchfork]
