Christopher Owens has shocked the world today by breaking up Girls via twitter. The Reading veterans had been enjoying huge success following two brilliant albums and one fantastic EP, but today that roll came to an abrupt end with Owens posting:
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 certainly a shock, as Girls were in such high demand, and we’re so acclaimed, but if this is the end, as the duo part ways, they’ve ended on a real high. Father, Son And Holy Ghost was an incredibly album to bow out on.
