The nucleus of Shadowparty formed when Josh Hager and Tom Chapman met in Boston, Massachusetts. Josh is a former member of The Rentals who currently plays guitar and keyboards in Devo. Tom Chapman is the former bass player of Bad Lieutenant who followed frontman Bernard Sumner to New Order in 2011 when the band reunited for a series of charity gigs. Completing the group are Phil Cunningham, Marion founding member and New Order’s guitarist since 2002, and drummer Jeff Friedl, who plays with Devo.
Born out of a shared desire to create, Stella Martyr was formed in Exeter in 2012. Their sound might best be described as ‘Electronic pop music with guitars’.

- David Myers – Vocals
- Spencer Roberts – Guitars
- Spike Myers – Guitars, Keyboards, Programming
- Jim Simpson – Bass, Vocals
- Joe Duddell – Drums, Guitar, Programming, Piano
- Annie Rew Shaw – Keyboards and Piano
You won’t find any love songs here, Stella Martyr inhabit the worlds of dystopia, alienation, nature, disease and conflict, but totally believe in beauty and the human spirit.
