Gaza Breaks Up

2013-03-15 by Nu Metal | 91 Comments
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:

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.

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

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).

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?

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.

Regardless if it's true or not, it can be considered that the accusation of rape alone was what probably took this band down.

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.

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.

This blows.
