Olympia, Washington punks G.L.O.S.S. (Girls Living Outside Society’s Shit) have announced they’re to split due to “the toll this band is taking on the mental and physical health of some of us.”
Revealing the news on Maximum Rocknroll, they explain: “We are not all high-functioning people, and operating at this level of visibility often feels like too much.”
“The punk we care about isn’t supposed to be about getting big or becoming famous,” they add, “it’s supposed to be about challenging ourselves and each other to be better people.
“It feels hard to be honest and inward when we are constantly either put on a pedestal or torn down, worshipped or demonized. We want to be whole people, not one-dimensional cartoons.”
The band recently released a new five-song EP, ‘Trans Day Of Revenge’ (pictured). It’s out digitally now, and on 7” too. It follows their earlier five-song demo, which came out last year.
