ALL ENDS Parts Ways With Singer, Announces Replacement

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."
