Girls frontman Christopher Owens announced via Twitter this morning that he is leaving the San Francisco garagey indie-pop band. Owens tweeted:

"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"

According to HuffPo, Owens was talking "excitedly" about recording the band's third album in May, so clearly his decision was a recent one — and one that must be for pretty serious reasons considering how much success the band has seen in the last few years. No doubt we'll hear more soon...
