Biography

Pontypridd, Wales (1997 – 2013)

Lostprophets were an band formed in Pontypridd, Wales in 1997. It was founded by current vocalist Ian Watkins and guitarist Mike Lewis. Initially, Watkins played drums for the band, although its success only began when he transferred over to lead vocals. They have released several demos, none of which have been produced commercially, five studio albums, and fourteen singles. Their fifth studio album is titled Weapons, released on the 2nd of April 2012.

The first of these albums, The Fake Sound Of Progress, was originally recorded for the meager sum of £6000 and intended as a glorified demo, but after catching the ears of several major labels, the band re-recorded and re-released the album on a much wider scale through Columbia Records. This resulted in a backlash against the band that was exacerbated by the four-year gap between their first and second albums. When the second album, Start Something, was finally released, the band achieved even greater success, entering the UK album chart at number five, and earning the band international popularity, most notably in the United States. Their third album entitled Liberation Transmission was released on the 26th of June 2006 in the UK and entered the UK album chart at number one.

In April 2007 Lostprophets began the Final Transmission - the last round of touring of their current album with Aiden and Taking Back Sunday as the confirmed support.

    last train home parody lyrics : To every little boy and girl in here Love was once a part, but now it's in your rear She told me that it's all part of the choices Ian makes (yeah) Even when he thinks he's right he has to give to take (virginity) But there's still tomorrow Forget the horror And Ian can be on the last babe's moan Watch him pass the day As he makes kids pay No more time to care loads of time, for babies But we sing If we're going perving Yeah we sing If it's not enough And we sing Sing with a good reason To ever fall in love (with kids) I wonder if you're listening Picking up on the signals Sent back from ians dick Sometimes it feels like I don't really know what's going on Time and time again it seems like everything is porn in here LMAO

    Just ignore them, seriously. If you don't acknowledge their posts or mention them, they're going to get bored really quickly and move on.

    "fans of this pedophile band, you say you never had thoughts about having a hot bath with 8 year olds after listening to this kind of music?" Are you stupid, that is disgusting. You're implying that anyone that listens to a band makes you do what they do. If that's the case then you're a murderer because you listen to Burzum. But again, you actually believe the bullshit you type?

    I can't listen to this band anymore without thinking about the asshole singing the lyrics... So sad, they were one of my favorites.

    Even if Ian Watkins didn't rape those kids, it would still be downright repulsive that he thought about doing it. I don't know why Tim Lambesis should get a pass just because he got caught. He still thought about it, he still hired who he thought was a hitman to kill his wife. The only difference is no on ended up getting harmed in Tim's case because the hitman was an undercover cop. They're both despicable people, just for different reasons.

    you people think Ian Watkins is bad? he's just the tip of the iceberg, have a read of this article... this guy doesn't "attempt" but actually goes ahead with 4 MONTHS old baby, reader discretion advised...... http://www.connectmidmissouri.com/news/story.aspx?id=1076600#.U9oKC6OwWrE yeah there is a lot of bad s*** that goes down in the world, most of it slips through the net as most countries have cops that accept money bribes or if they like the person or are friends...... you don't need to be a psycholagist to know why people like Jimmy Saville got away with it for 50 years... if you're a politician your "mates" can back you up and so on.... sadly it's not about fame or money, it's about control and manipulation, playing god with people's lives gives other people a deluded "power trip" when you "trust" anyone you hand them a key to your life and privacy, prevention is the best form of defense, justice is the second.

    If you want to condemn someone, condemn yourself for allowing the world to be in the sad, destructive state that it is in today. I of course blame myself too and the fact i could have done more, i probably could given another chance but it's probably too late. But have fun condemning fans of Lostprophets even though it won't matter, other people out there will violate kids rights and simply condemning those people will not stop the act. Such as people killing other people. If you want to stop it, stop condemning these people and try to learn from them, why they did it and how it can be prevented in the future by teaching others of the knowledge you gained. Otherwise, you're just doing nothing here but creating noise about the crime.

    Honestly i wonder why people care so much about one person's crime when thousands of lives are killed every day. I thought Randy was acquitted due to him pleading that he was only pushing the kid back for forcing himself on stage several times. Though back to my original statement thousands of lives die due from war, criminals, lack of food/water and medicine, and nevermind how much life is being destroyed due to forests being torn down and everyday we are threatened by death by drunk drivers, or other drivers not paying attention/drive recklessly, gang related shootings, viral/disease outbreaks, structural failures (buildings bridges, ect), storms, meteors, and whatever else that is fatal to any living being. Yet people care more about destroying everything that one person did wrong. Ian did commit a very bad crime and he should be punished, but the fans of the band shouldn't be condemned as well.

    "You are a pedophile if you listen to this stuff." "not a paedophile, just someone with a similar personality to that of a paedophile." Do you honestly believe in that bullshit that you're writing? Do you have any proof that people who listen to Lostprophets are pedophiles or the like? You don't know because you lack the intelligence or the ability to learn that people who listen to Lostprophets just care about the music. Nobody is forcing you to listen or like this music but it also shows you lack the ability to separate Ian's crime from his music career. Did Ian or the rest of the band commit any crimes in order to record their music? No they did not. Ian may have used his music career to commit his selfish crime but that doesn't mean the music in general is at fault. When people found out about Ian's crime, how exactly did that change the recordings of the albums prior to Ian's crime?
