It makes sense that Lostprophets’ fifth album is called Weapons, because it hits with all the force of an armed attack. It is an album of huge hook-filled anthems and soaring, dominating pop choruses combined with the crunching riffs and powerful metal rhythms for which the Welsh sextet have earned their reputation, not to mention their dozen Top 40 singles and over three million album sales worldwide.
Lostprophets have become one of the UK’s biggest rock bands since their inception a decade and a half ago, but if anything, Weapons has “next-level” written all over it. To American fans, it may feel like an eternity since the band was present, but since they last toured the States in 2006, they wrote and released 2010‘s The Betrayed, and kept themselves quite busy beyond that.
