Drummer, Luke Johnson has left No Devotion (ex-Lostprophets, Thursday) due to prior commitments. Ex-Bloc Party drummer, Matt Tong, helped finish recording the band’s debut record while Phil Jenkins of Kids In Glass Houses will be joining the band on tour. Read a statement from the band after the jump.
The band’s full-length has yet to be released, but you can still buy concert tickets here.
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.
