TURMOIL Frontman Quits

According to Lambgoat.com, vocalist Jon Gula has left the Philadelphia hardcore/metal band TURMOIL.

TURMOIL signed with Eulogy Recordings in February 2007 and is said to be nearly done recording a new full-length album, which previously had a working title of "The International Language of...".

Commented Gula: "TURMOIL has been a big part of life for many years, essentially half of my life. I really wish I could, but I just can't devote 100% of myself to TURMOIL anymore. I've got too many things to tend 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 added that isn't sure how the group will proceed in his absence. "I'll understand if they carry on with someone else," he said. "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."

Tracking for TURMOIL's first LP since 1999's "The Process Of" took place at Skylight Studios in Bensalem, Pennsylvania, with Vince Ratti (THE MINOR TIMES, A LIFE ONCE LOST) engineering.
