No Devotion Parts Ways with Drummer

No Devotion made up of ex-members of Thursday's Geoff Rickly and Lostprophets have parted ways with drummer Luke Johnson.

In a statement made upon the drummer Luke Johnson's website which reads “No Devotion has been an integral part of my daily life for the last two years. It comes with great sadness to announce that after the NYC show on October 28th 2014 I parted ways with No Devotion.

“This was a very difficult decision to make; we have been through a lot together. Love ‘em like brothers!

“I’d like to say a big thank you to all the people that continue to support me, especially the Fans! Much love and Respect!”

The band themselves have added on saying that “To clarify this morning’s news: A few months back, Luke approached us with the concern that he would be unable to fulfill commitments to No Devotion moving forward. It was sad to hear, because we've obviously been on quite the journey together over the past five years. We didn't say anything publicly, because deep down we hoped he’d change his mind.

“Matt Tong (formerly of Bloc Party) stepped in to fill in on drums for the remainder of recording, and Phil Jenkins from Kids in Glass Houses will be joining us for our upcoming shows.

“We wish Luke all the best, and are looking forward to seeing everyone in this new year.”
