Turmoil Prepare To Record, Tour

The upcoming Turmoil discography will be hitting stores in early-2005 through Abacus Recordings/Century Media Records. The release will include some new material that the group is currently working on. The band will enter the studio in November/December to record the new tracks, though a producer and studio haven't yet been announced. To address questions regarding their quasi-reformation, the group has issued the following statement:

"Some of you may be wondering why this is happening now, after almost 5 years. There are a few reasons. Ray Harkins from Abacus/Century Media Records contacted us a few months ago with the initial idea to release a complete discography due to the fact that Century Media wasn't planning on repressing any of the old Turmoil catalog. Ray, being the Turmoil super fan that he is, did not want to see that happen and neither did we. The four of us (Jon Gula, Jon Hodges, Jeff Hydro, and Jon Pushnik) all agreed that this was a good idea. Plus, over the past few years, we have all remained friends and shared some stages together with our new bands, The Kiss of Death and The Deadly. We all agreed that this would be the perfect opportunity for us to get together again and maybe work on some new Turmoil songs. There are also some questions about the "Turmoil is dead" comments that were written on the website in 2000, shortly after the Hellfest fiasco. We had gone through many problems in a short amount of time (members leaving the band, tour cancellations, label issues, etc.) and everyone was pretty much fed up with everything, including each other. Not to mention only getting to play 3 songs at 1 a.m. at our "final show," you get the picture? Those words were written out of frustration. So you can take it or leave it, but this is going to happen. For those of you who are awaiting this release, believe us, you will not be disappointed. We would like to thank everyone that has supported us throughout the years and continues to support us."

Prior to their U.S. reunion show, which will most likely take place in February in Philadelphia, the band will tentatively be traveling to Europe at the end of December for three shows. Here's the latest info:

29.12 Belgium Bruges Magdalenazaal / Good Life Eye Spy Fest
30.12 Holland Arnhem Goudvishal
31.12 Germany Munich New Years Eve Fest Mosh Fest
