Singer Emma Gelotte (sister of IN FLAMES guitarist Björn Gelotte) has announced her departure from the Swedish hard rock band ALL ENDS. She said in a statement, "For the last six years, ALL ENDS and its members has been everything to me. All the joy, happiness and love I have felt through the years from everyone in ALL ENDS, from the fans and everyone who has ever worked with us, I will never forget! But now I feel that I have to leave my spot to someone who has the same love and engagement as the rest of the guys have for ALL ENDS. I feel that I need to put my focus on my family and friends now, and I am sorry to say that there is no room for ALL ENDS... Thanks, everyone for all the support that you have given me through the years! I will never, ever forget!!"
Gelotte's replacement in ALL ENDS is the Gothenburg-based 21-year-old power-pop singer Jonna Sailon (pictured below). The band states, "The voice, look, attitude, chemistry and her personality, it just all fits in really, really well. She is a godsend angel that will rock you up! We welcome her to the family."
Commented Sailon: "For the first time in my life, I feel that I found myself, my home. ALL ENDS is more then music to me, it's already a big lovely family. I saw ALL ENDS live last year and I thought they were great. Two beautiful girls standing with incredible voices together with a great band.. They where great. I couldn't imagine that I would be one of the great girls. A dream that I never thought would come true did... I know it's going to be tough to live up to Emma's voice and charisma. But I'm going to do my best! I promise. I am so excited, but at the same time a bit scared. So I hope you will give me a chance to prove that I belong with ALL ENDS. I cant wait for the journey to begin."
