CD Review: Lostprophets Arm Themselves With "Weapons"

Welsh rockers, Lostprophets return with a brand new album entitled “Weapons.” This is the band’s first album on Epic Records, but it is their fifth album overall. The band hit #1 in the U.K. back in 2006 with their album “Liberation Transmission” and the new album debuted in the top 10 upon its release there back in April. The new album will not be released in the U.S. until June 19, but the first single off the album “Bring’em Down” is already making waves on alternative rock radio.

The band comes blazing out of the gate with the up-tempo rocker “Bring’em Down” that is sure to get the adrenaline pumping when it’s performed live this summer. Their powerful punk-pop sound continues with “We Bring An Arsenal” and “A Song From Where I Come From.” The band shows their edginess on “Better Off Dead,” before hitting more pop territory with “Heart On Loan.” The album closes with the slow burn of “Can’t Get Enough” and a hidden song called “Weapons.”

Lostprophets will be finishing the month of June over in Europe before joining the Vans Warped Tour in July. For more information on the new album and for a complete list of tour dates, check out
