No Devotion - No Devotion won't play Lostprophets songs

No Devotion will ''definitely never'' play Lostprophets songs.

The Welsh group disbanded after frontman Ian Watkins was jailed for 35 years for child sex offences in December, but the remaining members - Lee Gaze, Stuart Richardson, Mike Lewis and Jamie Oliver - now formed a new band with ex-Thursday singer Geoff Rickley, but won't be paying homage to their previous work when they go on the road.

Guitarist Lee said: ''It's always at the back of your mind, it's a raw nerve. We have every right to carry on writing music, but you do think about how people will take it.

''We'd definitely never play the songs again. We can take some good stuff from it and some bad stuff and just bury it in a box at this point, but I don't think we'd ever revisit anything.''

Lee admits he has no ''regrets'' about the end of his former band, except for the circumstances, but he does feel embarrassed when asked about his musical background.

He added to NME magazine: ''We did Lostprophets for a long time. I flirted with loving it and hating it for many years for different reasons.

''So in the bluntest way possible, I don't have any regrets about the band being finished; I obviously just wish it wasn't in the circumstances that it was.

''You can't ever mention it to anyone, you know? We were really proud of it, whether people liked us or not, we came from the f***ing middle of nowhere.

''Now, when people ask what bands I've played with, my answer is just, 'Eurgh'. It's an awkward position to be in.''
