LOSTPROPHETS’ WEAPONS OUT NOW IN NORTH AMERICA BACKED WITH EU & USA DATES

WELSH ROCKERS KICK OFF THEIR  RUN ON VANS WARPED TOUR JULY 12 BAND ANNOUNCES WEST COAST RUN  OF HEADLINE DATES STARTING AUGUST 7

 

After a busy spring which included  extensive tours of the UK  and Europe, chart-topping Welsh rockers Lostprophets are fired up and ready for  their North American fans to finally hear Weapons,  the band’s latest LP, which will be released by Fearless Records on  June 19th.

 

Weapons is now  streaming in its entirety on AOL Music at: http://music.aol.com/new-releases-full-cds#/7

 

This summer, the band will join the long-running  Vans Warped Tour, where they will play Main Stage from July 12-August 5. “Warped Tour will remind everyone  – old fans and new – how good it is having Lostprophets on these shores. It’s  been a long time since a UK  rock band has made a real impact in America and we’re ready to carry  that torch," says front man Ian Watkins.  

 

Following  the band’s Warped run, Lostprophets will  embark on a string of west coast headline shows, kicking off August 7th  in Sacramento, CA (see dates below).

 

Lostprophets are  also confirmed to headline the Warped Tour’s long-awaited return to  the UK in  November.

 

Formed in  Pontypridd, South Wales, the Welsh rock band have made their mark on both  sides of the Atlantic with their blend of  strong melodic choruses and aggressively edged rock. Through four previous  albums – 2000’s fakesoundofprogress, 2004’s Start  Something, 2006’s Liberation Transmission,  and 2010’s The  Betrayed – the band has grown, both in songwriting and  success, stacking up a dozen or so top 40 singles and selling over 3 million  albums worldwide.  Recipients of Kerrang! Magazine’s  2010’s Classic Songwriters Award, Lostprophets have become one of the U.K.’s  biggest rock bands, gracing countless magazine covers and headlining stages  at Reading/Leeds and Download Festivals.

 

Weapons marks the band’s first North American release since Liberation Transmission (2006) and was  recorded in North    Hollywood, CA  at NRG Studios with producer Ken Andrews (A Perfect Circle, Black  Rebel Motorcycle Club). 

 

Bassist Stu  Richardson recently talked to Alternative  Press about each of the songs that make up the new album: http://www.altpress.com/features/entry/track_by_track_lostprophets_weapons

 

Weapon Deluxe Edition (featuring 5 bonus tracks ) is  now available on iTunes at: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/weapons-deluxe-edition/id528760763.  

You can  also pick up your copy of Weapons in  stores, at any local Hot Topic, Best Buy or FYE.

Praise  for Weapons:

"…Weapons showcases a band every bit as hungry as the one  that blasted out of their Pontypridd rehearsal room a decade ago."- Kerrang!

“Because of its compact form and  committed performances, Weapons  is a release that burns brightly. Its cause is aided by the fact that Lostprophets  are a quite fabulous band in motion, one equipped with not just power but  also nuance."- BBC Music

"Weapons does indeed mark a new  beginning for Lostprophets. Where in the past they specialised in instant  hits, now they’re aiming for something larger and more long-lasting."- Rock Sound
