As you probably don’t need to be told, Lostprophets had an… uh, unfortunate demise as a band. So when the members re-formed as a new band called No Devotion and needed a singer of a higher moral character, they recruited former Thursday vocalist and generally upstanding guy, Geoff Rickly.

Despite a new name, a new singer, and a new everything, many wondered how No Devotion would dissociate themselves from their storied past. Here to introduce you to the band’s new look, sound, and lineup is their video for “Eyeshadow.” The video’s live shots, cut from a few UK shows and rehearsals, feature purple lighting and smoke clouds which give the band’s stage presence an ethereal feel, punctuated by Rickly’s penchant for emotional theatrics. He brings his basement show energy to the big stage. Indeed, this is a totally new band.

The video wraps up with a move clearly made to deliberately divorce the band from its sordid past: As the audience’s claps ring out, Rickly ends the song by telling the crowd: “We’re a brand new band called No Devotion.”

"Eyeshadow" is available on a 12-inch via the band's website. No Devotion will be soon heading out on tour with Neon Trees:
