They were left reeling last year.
But months after Ian Watkins was jailed on 13 counts of sexual assault his former band Lostprophets have spoken out about his horrific crimes.
The singer's one-time friends have formed a brand new band called No Devotion and are moving on from what their former frontman did.
Guitarist Lee Gaze told The Guardian: "A week ago I didn't know if anybody would want to listen to us because of the associations, but people seem to really want to see us succeed."
The musician also admitted that he had no idea about the crimes that Ian was committing at the time, but that the band had all tried to help him recover from his drug addiction.
Bandmate Stuart Richardson said: "I've gone back and tried to find clues, and read interviews. I think about four years ago we started noticing a change in him.
"We heard he was doing cocaine, which for most people is nothing, but Ian was straight-edge and for him to start doing it was, 'No, he wouldn't do that.'"
