Turmoil and frontman Jon Gula have parted ways. Gula was a founding member of the group, which originally formed in 1992. Last February Turmoil signed with Eulogy Recordings and has slowly been working on a new full-length. With the new album nearing completion, the commitments that go along with it have forced Gula to reevaluate his situation, and he has ultimately chosen to step aside.
Speaking with Lambgoat this afternoon, Gula said the decision has been extremely difficult for him, lamenting, "Turmoil has been a big part of life for many years, essentially half of my life." A recent career change further weighed on Gula's mind. "I really wish I could, but I just can't devote 100% of myself to Turmoil anymore. I've got too many things to attend to right now, and I didn't think it would be fair to our fans, or to the rest of the band, to delay the inevitable."
Gula isn't sure how the group will proceed in his absence, adding. "I'll understand if they carry on with someone else. I'm not sure if I would call it 'Turmoil,' going forward, but I support whatever decision they make. Obviously, they've got to do what's right for them."
