Christopher Owens statement

As reported on the Turnstile and True Panther blogs:

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.
