The founding members were Bernhard Lloyd, Frank Mertens, and singer Marian Gold. Frank Mertens left the band after the release of their first album, ''Forever Young'', and was replaced by Ricky Echolette. This lineup produced the bulk of Alphaville's studio material, responsible for ''Afternoons in Utopia,'' ''The Breathtaking Blue,'' ''Prostitute,'' and ''Salvation.'' Echolette left the band during the production of ''Salvation''. Alphaville existed for a while as just Bernhard Lloyd and Marian Gold, during which they released the anthology box sets ''Dreamscapes'' and ''Crazyshow''. Lloyd officially left Alphaville in 2003[[note]]His involvement in Alphaville as a band member was basically finished after ''Dreamscapes'' released in 1999, though he still did managerial and promotional work until his official departure[[/note]]. The lineup for 2010's ''Catching Rays on Giant'' is Marian Gold, Martin Lister on keyboards, David Goodes on guitar, and Jakob Kiersch on drums. Fifth member, bassist Maja Kim, joined the band the following year. Martin Lister passed away in May of 2014. After his death, Carsten Brocker took over on keyboards. Maja Kim left the band in July, 2016.
