Turmoil announces singer, debuts new songFriday, January 23, 2009 4:09 PM PT / 17,048 views
We were the ones to originally break the news that Nate Johnson had joined Turmoil, so it's only fitting that we bring you the official announcement from the band in addition to an exclusive offering (via Flash below - wait for it to load) of their new track, "Papercuts." Here's the official word from Turmoil: "We are very excited to tell you that we have our new singer, and his name is Nate 'Everybody's Favorite Band Whore' Johnson. An observant bartender submitted a video of him doing his best Turmoil karaoke at Local Moose Lodge #42 in Ossipee, NH, and he fucking nailed it. Hopefully he'll stick around for more than 6 weeks. In all honesty he contacted us, told us he has been a longtime fan and submitted a demo. He has a great voice, great presence, and most important of all he is excited about the new recording. We've been trying to keep it under wraps since November because we wanted to present the news along with a finished version of the song 'Papercuts' to let it speak for itself, but due to the fact that he lives so far in the middle of nowhere that we could only reach him via carrier pigeon, it took a little longer than we planned. Here it is, hope you dig it."
