Lostprophets To Release New Album Next Year
0
Lostprophets have revealed that they plan to get their next album out before the end of 2007. Speaking to Gigwise, guitarist Mike Lewis says he wants the recording process to be much faster than their last album. He explained: "We're gonna start writing the next record in February, March time. In the past we've always toured, taken a break to write and record a record and then toured again. But with our next record we're not gonna do it that way. "We're gonna take March off and write and then do the arena tour in April and The Full Ponty in May and hopefully we're gonna record the album in May or June. We just wanna do the next record very different. "The first record was done in two weeks, y'know our second record took a year, our last one was a year the next one we wanna take it back. Write it in a month, record it in a month and get it out the end of next year."

    I really don't know what they are trying to get at with this interview. Before they'd tour, write and record, then tour, but now they tour, write, tour some more, then release the album. I really don't get how that's really that different of a recording process. Anyways, Lost Prophets were pretty good on their first album, but they've gone downhill from there and become pretty mundane and mediocre.

    Niiice. Cant wait. Hopefully they'll bring back a bit more metal, or like a hybrid of fakesoundofprogress and start something. I'd looove that. x

    I'm not gonna lie, liberation transmission wasn't original at all. The first two albums were solid and I liked them ok, but the third album was just a leap for the emo bandwagon. Granted, they're still a good band and did it pretty well (and besides, I like emo music) but they really did sacrifice their sound for something far more generic (not to mention they seem more focused on appearance than substance now), just look at the video for rooftops; it was all about generic "emo" kids hating their lives and finally releasing that anger. I mean, honestly, who actually lives like that, it's such bullshit, and in a way it encourages us teenagers to break free and lash out, which is absolutely digusting) As for this fourth album, I think its too soon. way too soon. they just released an album this year, and considering the way it turned out, I think they need time to sort themselves out.

    I'm really thinking that this album is going to be a horrible emo record, they got so many more fans from going emo and it seems like they are trying to sell out. "i mean who cares if we loose our old fans, we're getting new fans, it's all about the money"

    great news, as much as i liked liberation transmission it was too much on the pop side for lostprophets so hopefully we get to hear more fake sound or start something type material

    lostprophets f*cking rule... their 3rd album is their best yet. People are saying it's rushed, that'll be a year and a half since LT, so yeah good stuff =)

    If they feel they are ready to release another album then noone should stand in there way....and to be honest, it's pretty common for bands the release albums every 1-2 years...especially after they've released their second. For all you who don't understand.....the second album is always seen as the hardest one to write and record....I got that off an Iron Maiden DVD.

    Hopefully by taking it back and recording faster, it ends up like the first album they realeased otherwise im gonna be pissed.

    i agree with everyone who is saying theyve gone downhill from the first album. i occasionaly listen to that first album, and every time i hear it i wonder why i dont listen to it more. then i hear newer stuff on the radio and it just doesnt sound anywhere near as good. so hopefully doing this album faster will give results more like that first album.

    i'm sorry to say i don't know any of their songs except for "last train home" and "rooftops" and i thought rooftops sucked hard, while last train home was amazing. someone tell me what their top 5 songs are? i would appreciate it greatly. anyway... beginpointlessnote: they said they dont want their albums to take a year... but its november 2006 now, and they want it to come out at the end of 2007? riiiiight. k ill shut up. endpointlessnote.

    come on guys if i was in a band my goal will b to earn as much money as i can, theres no point producing music that a few people like better and not gettin as much money. i liked da first 2 albums and i also like liberation transmission but did miss da heavyness. but totally lookin 4ward 2 da new album since its gonna b more heavier

    What the hell happened to those guys?! Their first two albums were great, and now they completely suck.
    lostprophets are a band who i've liked since day, 1, i like FSOP because it was different, then start something came along, that is by far the best album i've listened to in many years, liberation transmission is a shocking attempt compared to Start Something, but i do like it, and i'm glad that in their new album they're going back to their heavier roots, if you search 'Next Stop Atrocity' on youtube, its one of the songs from their new album, it owns.

Sorry but i really doubt it'll turn out that way. Obviously they've gone emo for the bloody money and thats where they're gonna stay. So they've gone from a good band to a crappy Simple Plan like band
    i think faster will be good, thats the key!

    Naa Lostprophets said there new albums got more chug chug on it,meanin its gonna be more heavier like FSOP and start something, they said there over pop but there new album is still gonna be catchy as anything so its goona be an album dat suits all lostprophets fans. Unfortunatly they also said it sounds darker so i think they might keep there emo look which i hate, they looked so much kooler wif there other look

    I got into the lost prophets when I saw them support linkin park in November 2003 and was blown away thinking about it they are probably the second best band i'v seen after papa roach I really liked there first 2 albums when i heard roof tops i thought ok little different I'll wait till they put something else out but town called hypocrisy was the nail in the coffin for me the sad thing is that I can hear never gonna stop tomorrow with the guitars turned up and Ian s and mike screaming the lyrics I'v seen a million people change but I will stay the same in that case go back to the old lost prophets if the new album is like liberation trasmision then they have lost a once dedicated fan

    ok, i used to hate these guys. I thought they were just another poser emo type band. Then i saw them live. They forced the place to let them play on the small stage i was within arms length of them. It was incredible. As soon as they played Shinobi the crowd went nuts.

    First two albums were really solid, but I'm hoping that if they can this next album out soon it will make me forget how disappointed in Liberation Transmission I was.

    got to agree part i would say only the first one held up, they do seem to release a new album to soon, should check bk on them selfs and work out the cons and make it a good album and have the good work that the first album had

    As long as they don't rush it, this is great news. The new album's brilliant no matter what people have said about "selling out". I'll look forward to this.

    they should more stuff like the first two albums but there was a few good songs on Liberation Transmission
    Justice-For-All
    Wow the sell-outs want to make another album all ready? These guys used to be good but now they just suck with all this emo music. I wonder what trend they'll jump on this time round.

    I didn't think much of Liberation Transmission but i thought the first two were great. Lets just hope they churn out something good this time.
    Alibi:Destroyed
    sounds cool. I hope it's better than their last one cause all I heard was their single and i thought it was horrible it just kept repeating itself.

    TFSOP - really experimental and something fresh. Startsomething - not exactly original, but every song was good, and had variety LT - nothing wrong with going pop, but lostprophets really did this for the wrong reasons - the songs just arent as good. and hearing them in interviews makes me just hate the people themselves. Arses... good two first albums though
    jonnieb123
    they hav changed ridiculously, but i have to say that i am still with these guys. they r just a good pop band, like The Who were back in the day

    The first album is good, the second album sucks and their third is good. Hopefully the fourth'll be a good 'un. I look forward to it.
