Ex-lostprophets emerge as No Devotion
The ex-members of lostprophets (Lee Gaze, Luke Johnson, Mike Lewis, Jamie Oliver, and Stuart Richardson) are returning with a new project, No Devotion, recruiting ex-Thursday vocalist Geoff Rickly to front the band.
"We didn’t know if we would ever make music again,” Richardson recalls, "if people would look us in the face. Everything felt like it was over.”
“To be honest, I never really listened to Lostprophets,” Rickly admits. “But with this music, we speak a common language. You don’t really grow out of punk, you grow with it. To my mind, post-punk was about taking a more sophisticated approach to that sound, and I think we all have a shared respect for that era of modern music.”
The band will play:
July 22 - Cardiff, CF10
July 23 - Manchester, Sound Control
July 25 - London, O2 Academy Islington
July 26 - Glasgow, O2 ABC2
A single, 'Stay' is available on iTunes now. A 12" follows on 21st July.
