Kat Katz joined grindcore band Agoraphobic Nosebleed in 2007, the same year she exited Salome because of "personal conflicts." Today she announced in a post on Facebook that she is quitting Agoraphobic Nosebleed, as well. "Tired of being bullied by dudes," she writes. "Salome and now Agoraphobic Nosebleed. I quit Agoraphobic Nosebleed tonight. Hopefully, I find a band that respects me and treats me as an equal."

Agoraphobic Nosebleed posted a Facebook message about the announcement as well. "We’ve had some disagreements with Kat about how we should interact in the band," they write, "and as a result she quit. We wish her well with music in the future. Scott has some writing and recording to wrap up with Pig Destroyer, and after that he’ll start writing music for the next ANb record."

Agoraphobic Nosebleed share members with Pig Destroyer, and Kat appears on their 2018 album Head Cage, as well.

UPDATE: Agoraphobic Nosebleed posted a longer statement, which Kat has since responded to.
