No Devotion Vow Never To Play Lostprophets Songs Written By Ian Watkins

No Devotion, a band formed by the former members of Ian Watkins’ band Lostprophets, have vowed never to play songs written by the convicted paedophile.

Ian was convicted of 12 child sex offences in December and the band recently announced their plan to reform as new act No Devotion, with a new singer.

Now, his former bandmates have confirmed that they won’t be performing any Lostprophets songs on their upcoming UK tour.

Former Thursday frontman Geoff Rickly will front no Devotion, who are set to head out on tour in late July.

“To be honest, I never really listened to Lostprophets,” he says. “But with this music we speak a common language. I had always liked these guys in passing; they’re funny and self-aware.

"I didn’t think it was fair what was happening to them and, well, the music was too good to pass up.”

The singer will appear in front a panel next week who will decide whether his sentence was too harsh.
