The instrumental portion of Lostprophets is officially starting a new chapter. The U.K. rockers' careers came to a sudden stop when frontman Ian Watkins was arrested and later sentenced to 29 years in prison for sexually abusing children. But the other band members eventually started making music again, and now they've brought in former Thursday frontman Geoff Rickly to take over vocal duties.
Rickly tells Billboard he was originally just there to make a documentary about what the band was going through, but he ultimately decided to sign on for more. The new group is called No Devotion, and their first single "Stay" is available now on iTunes.
No Devotion will reportedly follow "Stay" with another single before turning their attention to a full album. They're also set to kick off a four-stop mini tour in the U.K. later this month.
