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
The news comes as quite a shock, seeing as the band has seen a great deal of praise and success following the release of their sophomore album Father, Son, Holy Ghost last September. J.R. White, the other half and co-founder of Girls, has yet to release a statement regarding Owens' departure, but stay posted for updates.
