Lostprophets is an Alternative Rock band from Wales. While they started as mostly Nu-metal, their sound quickly diversified to the point where they defy a more specific genre. Musically, they combine Nu-metal, Alternative Metal, Post-hardcore, Post-Grunge, Hard Rock, and Pop Punk.

Formed in 1997 by lead singer Ian Watkins, bassist Mike Lewis (currently guitarist), guitarist Lee Gaze and drummer Mike Chiplin (departed in 2005), they quickly gained attention via touring, signing their first deal in 1999. They released their first album, Thefakesoundofprogress, in 2000, and have continued to release an album every two to four years.

Despite a style that is more typically likened to bands from the U.S. (or perhaps because of it), they were much more popular in the U.K. than in the U.S., leading them to not release their 4th album in North America. However, they signed a new deal, leading to their 5th album, Weapons, being currently slated for a June 2012 U.S. release.


Their discography:

  • Thefakesoundofprogress (2000)
  • Start Something (2004)
  • Liberation Transmission (2006)
  • The Betrayed (2010)
  • Weapons (2012)
