Lostprophets' guitarist Lee Gaze says the band had no idea about former frontman Ian Watkins' offenses.
"How could you know? How would you know?" he kicked off speaking with BBC Newsbeat (via NME). "Who would disclose such a thing to five people, who between them have eight children? You just wouldn't because they would be killed on the spot."
The guitarist also noted that Watkins appeared delusional to his bandmates, being "strangely positive and enthusiastic about everything," counter to the mood of the band.
"[He was] talking about the next record and how it's going to do really well and get back on our feet. It goes to show how deluded he was. He is just completely on a different level to everybody, happy and positive and convinced we are going to be successful again."
No Devotion, the new band from the former members of Lostprophets plus Thursday frontman Geoff Rickly, released their debut single earlier this year.
