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.

    Eh, it's about self control. Though little girls do dress too skanky these days but i blame the oversexualization the media and culture shoves down our throats. But when it comes to violence no one cares, oh that guy committed murder, send his ass to prison, but his career isn't ruined when he serves his time behind bars.

    It's kinda hard to listen to this band and knowing what Ian did. Still, they did good music.

    The little girls lead him on, too much makeup and kinky bikinis and hotpants and stilettos lead to the instaboner. Mysogyny will rule the earth once again.

    Even the rest of the band would have killed Ian on the spot if they knew of Ians crimes. Just let that sink in, ex Lostprophets members would murder Ian Watkins for being a pedo. Remember folks don't tattoo your favorite band or you might regret it.

    Even the band members for As I Lay Dying had no idea Tim tried putting a hit out on his wife. Dude couldn't just get a divorce. If no one ever knew Ian was a pedophile it wouldn't matter if people listened to his music. Why would it matters if he did or not. What Ian did was disgusting but its childish to think people are disgusting to listen to this band. There most likely other bands people listen to that do the same but havent been caught.

    TDcore - they did start another band, No Devotion, Where have you been? plus you can take time out the band, you don't "have to" to hang out with your band members if you're in a band, I think it was Mike who explained toward the end they would not see watkins in spare time only when they were playing gigs, "live in a tight space together" sounds a bit gay man, if I were making a ton of money like he did, I would be throwing house parties 3 times a week with all the friends made on me way to being a "rockstar" it's unlikely i would sit and fester in a cramped tour bus just because the rest of the band is in there, lol. although listening gives watkins royalties (still) in that respect it is immoral, lostprophets are like the devils music now, love it so much and feel bad for listening after knowing each play is putting money aside for a scumbag when he gets out, that's how the system works, to stop listening based on his actions is dumb, i like the sound regardless of crime

    I simply find it sick that people are still listening to this band. I mean seriously. You do realize that you are listening to the words of a man who likes putting his dick in children, don't you? I don't care if the rest of the band isn't too blame. They should at least start ANOTHER band. Who wants this kind of legacy behind them their whole lives? And excuse me, but it is INCREDIBLY shifty that none of the other band members know nothing of his exploits. I've been in a band for 5 years and trust me, if someone is doing this kind of crap, everyone else in the band would know. Kinda hard too keep much of anything a secret when you live in a tight space together at least 6 months out of a year. It's really a shame, because I used to like this band quite a bit. But there's no denying the truth here. It's simply creepy and un-moral to still listen to this crap.

    "Who is this Watkins fella and why does everyone seem so heated?" Little slow on the uptake there?

    "if anyone is stupid enough to put the blame on the whole band and stop listening to them then you're being childish." Does that mean Ian Watkins will come to rape us if we stop listening to his music? :O

    This person seems to have, or have had, the habit of behaving improperly with children. He also likes children and animal pornography. That is, according to the Welsh justice system.
