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.

    Actually James that's what i meant, i should have worded that differently but i agree that it's environmental conditions that makes a person do what they do, like a person stealing because they want something they can't afford or have. It was still Ians decision, but he might have done things differently had his life been different. There are some conditions that people are born a certain way such as being overweight, parents might have had an unhealthy lifestyle but again that's part of the environment. Society has these things out of control because they only deal with the consequences after it happens. War, poverty, crime, hate, greed, evil, pollution, ect are all preventable but our leaders tend to look the other way but it's all part of the environment that society lacks the knowledge and logic to get on the right track.

    pedo's arn't "born" that way, don't even get me started.. people need to learn the fundamental difference between "born" with characteristics and Inheriting through the environment in which the latter comes most things, you're NOT born a smoker, a druggie, fat, gay/bi/les/trans with piercings or tattoos or long hair, with long nails, with makeup, with botox etc etc they are lifestyle choices, you ARE born with a free, blank canvas for a mind in which will be filled with whatever the people and way of life is around you... you ARE born with things that are not in your control ie colour of skin, colour of eyes, type of face, shape of head etc etc etc, In the case of Watkins he "became" a pedophile through meth, fame and abuse of status, remember it was the mothers coming to HIM it was young girls going to HIM he just sat back and said ok choices are concious desicions i'm not being a "racist" or "bigot" as some tool might want to point out, im being a realist, knowing is half the battle

    I can only hope that society will find a way to prevent more Pedophiles from being born.

    And well, they made me listen to the The Cure (I heard Lostprophets' cover of Boys Don't Cry and then I listened to the original version and I fell in love with The Cure).

    I don't accept what Ian Watkins did (if he really did that). Was he sentenced, yes? If he is guilty, he sould be punished. But the band is not only Ian and I listen to the band because the rest of band is not guilty for what Ian did.
