|Gaza Breaks Up|

Progressive Hardcore band Gaza announced today on their Facebook that they have broken up, writing, "Gaza is no longer a band. A big thank you to anyone that has supported us. Some of
us will continue to make music together."
Gaza found itself in a wealth of controversy earlier this year when their vocalist Jon Parkin was accused of rape by a young woman. Whether or not this incident was related to their breakup was not disclosed by the band.
Gaza released 3 full lengths and 1 EP during their 9 year career as a band.
The statement can be found on their Facebook:

So fucking bummed.
Digging: Mayak and Smile To The Wind - Split EP
Digging: Black Sheep Wall - It Begins Again
AND NOTHING OF VALUE. WAS LOST.
Don't think he did it but could be possible that the claim itself and possible hordes of abuse they received from Tumblr dickweeds who believed the story could have put enough strain on the band that they felt they couldn't continue anymore.
thats what i said asshole dont rip my theories dude thats rude
Lostprophets are doomed then...
I've been a Gaza fan for less than a month and this happens?!

First thought ^
Digging: Aphex Twin - Selected Ambient Works 85-92
not one of my favorite bands, but i saw them live once and they put on a great show, so this bums me out to a certain degree
also: he prolly did rape her
Digging: Self Defense Family - Try Me
aww man that blows rip
Digging: Kendrick Lamar - good kid, m.A.A.d city
there could also be the fact that the allegations made it hard for them to book shows and studio time and whatnot
maybe he didn't rape her
just my 2 cents
that feminist lost the battle but she won the war
Digging: Waxahatchee - American Weekend
that stupid whore.
bumping gaza all day in respect
All it takes is an accusation and you're ruined forever regardless of whether it's true or not. Name me one case where someone's been accused of rape (or any other major offence like this) and been found innocent but HASN'T had it looming over them since with people wondering "maybe he (as is more often the case) did do it".
dats: when their names are not revealed. not long ago i heard of a girl who got convicted for her false accusation, and the dudes (3) got away and nobody knows who they are (or maybe friends know but the girl admited she just got drunk and regreted it the next day).

Their vocalist was accused of rape and they're forced to break up, but Varg killed a dude and he's
still allow to chuck out records? How's that work?

the spirit of bm can never be overcome
cuz varg doesn't give a shit and isn't leaving his room so lol society opinions
Digging: Cult of Luna - Salvation
you know, they could have broken up for totally unrelated reasons.

also Ben Roethlisberger, David Copperfield, Cee Lo Green
"Their vocalist was accused of rape and they're forced to break up, but Varg killed a dude and he's

Who the hell said that is the reason why they broke up? Bands like this (smaller bands that don't sell out to the mainstream) break up all the time. You fools act like this is something new.
Plus wasn't the accuser said to have made up the whole story?
volt: no the accuser said she wouldn't talk about it anymore...
Nah they still stood by the accusation but claims to have "reached an agreement" with the band. Probably as, considering how she describes herself and the things she'd posted on Tumblr made her story pretty unreliable.
NO!!! That fucking sucks!
Their last album ruled so hard
well damnit. has to be related to the rape charges, otherwise i reckon they would have mentioned details. maybe not though
Digging: Culprate - Colours
You have to be fucking kidding.
Digging: Their / They're / There - Analog Weekend
Digging: Saves the Day - Stay What You Are
haha sweet band sucked so hard
Regardless if it's true or not, it can be considered that the accusation of rape alone was what probably took this band down.
Digging: All the Empires of the World - Return
I still doubt the rape deal was true. But I stated my reasoning in the thread about it and don't wanna repeat myself.
I bet after that they just got tired and broke up.
Digging: SORNE - Ego Altar
the spirit of bm can never be overcome
FUCK, this sucks. I just got into them.
Goddammit, why. One of my favorite bands
this blows massively
so glad i was able to see them a couple of months back.
Digging: Weekend Nachos - Still
I honestly think the rape accusation caused this, I don't think he raped her but I think the association with such a thing did.
it sure was lame of Jesus, to take time off from ignoring
Gaza breaking up
False rape accusations
and famine-bloated children
...and They Are Never Coming Back.
nothing of value lost
Nothing of value lost if you're an asshole, let fans grief you douchers
yeah you douchers
"let fans grief you douchers"
i didn't realize me not giving a shit was interfering with their grief
"Nothing of value lost if you're an asshole, let fans grief you douchers"
it's just a band bro.
no need to get your panties all tangled up
These guys are from my home town. They just started to get somewhat known in the states, hell I just saw them live a few weeks ago and they killed it, the crowd was going crazy! I knew Gaza before Chelsea Grin was even a band, and now CG is the only heavy band out of Utah that's actually big.
it's okay you'll get through this
