Unfortunate news for fans of power metal band Helion Prime, as they have announced that vocalist Kayla Dixon will be leaving the group. Kayla joined the band in 2016 after vocalist Heather Michele Smith, ended her run with the group.
Guitarist Jason Ashcraft said in a statement on Facebook:
We know that this comes as both a shock and low blow to the fans. For that we are deeply sorry. It’s not a decision that was easily made.
A lot of people don’t get to see the behind the scenes of a band and sadly it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. Things don’t always work out as you hope.
We wish Kayla nothing but the best of luck in her future career as a musician and actress.
We understand this will be hard for some people to accept and we ask you have trust in us and know we are only looking out for the future of this band and what we feel is right for ourselves and the fans.
We have plans to enter the studio this week to begin tracking the second album. This will not be changed and tracking of the second album will push forward as planned. This band means the world to us and we will continue to push forward and upward.
Thanks to everyone who has supported us and will continue to support us.
