Phanie Diaz, (now former) drummer for San Antonio’s Girl In A Coma has revealed via her Facebook account that, after 18 years, the band was breaking up. There had been speculation about the band’s future since their lead singer, Nina Diaz, released her first solo album “The Beat Is Dead”. About a year later, Nina would announce her intentions to move to LA, effectively making it impossible for the band to carry on. Phanie & bass player Jenn Alva will now focus on their punk band Fea.
Nina Diaz appeared on the Kill Rock Radio Podcast & gushed about her solo project & talked about the backlash from GIAC fans, who felt the album’s poppier sound was Diaz’ attempt to “sell out”. Check out the full interview below.
