Lostprophets have teamed up with VEVO for the world-wide premiere of fan-favorite single “Jesus Walks”.
The band took to the California desert to film the cinematic clip with director J.J. Moffat (director of Lostprophets’ latest video for “Bring Em’ Down”).
Latest LP, Weapons was released in the US this past June to widespread acclaim. Weapons marks the band’s first North American release since Liberation Transmission (2006) and was recorded in North Hollywood, CA at NRG Studios with producer Ken Andrews (A Perfect Circle, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club).
The Welsh rockers recently completed an inspiring return to the United States. Even after a six-year absence, they found themselves playing to thousands of old-school and new-school fans, with hundreds lining up for meet-and-greets at each stop of the Vans Warped Tour. They are now set to return to the UK where they will headline the country’s version of Warped amidst a slew of their own dates.
LOSTPROPHETS – Ian Watkins (Lead Vocals), Lee Gaze (Lead Guitar), Mike Lewis (Rhythm Guitar), Stuart Richardson (Bass), Jamie Oliver (Synth, Turntables, Samples, Backing Vocals), Luke Johnson (Drums) – Formed in Pontypridd, South Wales, the Welsh rock band have made their mark on both sides of the Atlantic with their blend of strong melodic choruses and aggressively edged rock. Through four previous albums – 2000’s fakesoundofprogress, 2004’s Start Something, 2006’s Liberation Transmission, and 2010’s The Betrayed – the band has grown, both in songwriting and success, stacking up a dozen or so top 40 singles and selling over 2 million albums worldwide. Recipients of Kerrang! Magazine’s 2010’s Classic Songwriters Award, Lostprophets have become one of the U.K.’s biggest rock bands, gracing countless magazine covers and headlining stages at Reading/Leeds and Download Festivals.
