An appearance on the ‘One Life Once Chance‘ podcast with H2O‘s Toby Morse saw Guerra further explain his decision to step down:

“I got two more European tours and your boy is calling it a wrap, alright? Shout out to the guys in the band, I love them and everything, but the fact is the band slowed down too much and I’m on double time now. Right now, financially and mentally, it isn’t enough for me.

I got a lot of things that I wanna do, and – like I was telling you, my children eat a lot. I gotta be working [and] the band slowed down. It’s harder for me to make things happen, but there’s no beef. It’s all love. I wish them all the best, but I’m only doing the next two European runs and that’s it.”
