Check Lostprophets ‘Bring Em Down’ remix by Russell of Bloc Party, a new spiced-up version of the instant hit.The original track, out March 26, will feature on the band’s 5th studio album ‘Weapons’ released via Epic on April 2nd
It’s been two years since the Welsh sextet released their fourth studio album, ‘The Betrayed’ (January 2010). Two very hectic years.

Before the writing and recording process for fifth album, ‘Weapons’, could begin, 2010 needed to be closed out with a series of big experiences. As has become the norm, Lostprophets wowed the massive Reading and Leeds main stage crowd.

They then went on to steal the show at Belfast’s Belsonic Festival and about a month later, were asked to participate in the opening ceremony for the Ryder Cup at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium.

Immediately following the Ryder Cup festivities, the band decamped to a private home in Norfolk for an initial round of writing. After Norfolk, Lostprophets moved back to the more familiar turf of Los Angeles to work on developing their existing ideas and creating even more monstrous ones.

Studio work began in February 2011 at LA’s NRG Studios with Ken Andrews (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, A Perfect Circle). Now, as 2012 kicks off, the band is ready to share their work with the world.

They have become one of the UK’s biggest rock bands without compromise or flirting with musical fashions, instead choosing to stick with what they believe in and constantly striving to do better, more creatively challenging things.
