HELLION SINGER, ANN BOLEYN, EXPLAINS HER MYSTERIOUS ABSENCE FROM THE MUSIC INDUSTRY AND REVEALS FIRST OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO FROM NEW “KARMAS A BITCH” CD

Ann Boleyn, powerhouse vocalist for L.A. female-fronted Metal act, HELLION, speaking to Eric Thompson in the current issue of Sweden Rock Magazine, explains the reasons for her mysterious disappearance from the music industry in the mid-2000s.

“My absence from the music industry was not voluntary,” said Ann Boleyn.  “I was forced to flee because of problems with three stalkers.” One of the stalkers, a former financial advisor for HELLION, pled guilty to felony charges in 2003, and served time in prison.

“The District Attorney issued restraining orders to keep them away from me.  The police could not protect me so I was forced to change my lifestyle and had to avoid places where I usually would go.  Even my friends were threatened by these stalkers.”

Ann Boleyn re-emerged in DÉTENTE in 2007, replacing legendary thrash singer, Dawn Crosby, who died of liver failure.

Shortly after leaving DÉTENTE, Boleyn became depressed following the death of Ronnie James Dio, in 2010.  Dio had produced HELLION.

“I was approached by a Japanese promoter to front an all-star tribute.  They wanted me to record a tribute album to Ronnie and to tour in Japan and possibly South America.  I had never been offered so much money for any music project, but I could not agree to it because I felt like I would have been profiting from Ronnie’s death.”

In 2014, Boleyn enlisted drummer Simon Wright (AC/DC, DIO, UFO, QUEENSRYCHE), keyboard player Scott Warren (HEAVEN & HELL, DIO, TYPE-O NEGATIVE), bassist Bjorn Englen (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, TONY MCALPINE), and up and coming shred guitarist Maxxxwell Carlisle to record and tour for the first time in nearly a decade.  Georg Dolivo (RHINO BUCKET) also appeared as a special guest rhythm guitarist on HELLION’S recent North American tour.  Bassist Greg Smith (ALICE COOPER, RAINBOW, TED NUGENT) filled in for Englen on the recent tour due to a schedule conflict.
