Frontman Geoff Rickly will release the new band's material through his Collect Records label
When Lostprophets dissolved last year after their lead singer was convicted of sex crimes, the band's other five members found their careers in limbo. Enter Geoff Rickly -- the former frontman of post-hardcore greats Thursday, current United Nations member (the hardcore band, that is), esteemed Talkhouse writer and owner of the brand new Collect Records label. Rickly's busy schedule got a lot busier when he agreed not only to sign the ex-LP members' new project but to be their frontman as well.
Introducing No Devotion -- Rickly plus former Lostprophets members Lee Gaze, Mike Lewis, Jamie Oliver, Luke Johnson and Stuart Richardson -- pulling their gothic and new wave influences together and casting their personal demons aside. Billboard presents the debut single from the new band, the sleek 'n icy, beat-driven "Stay," mixed by famed Flaming Lips producer Dave Fridmann.
