"lostprophets" are a Welsh rock band formed in 1997. They have produced several demos (none of which are still produced commercially), three studio albums and eight singles. Their first album, ''thefakesoundofprogress'', was originally recorded for the meagre sum of £6000 and intended as a glorified demo, but after catching the ears of several major labels, the band re-recorded and re-released the album on a much wider scale through Columbia Records in the USA (they remain with Visible Noise in the UK). This resulted in a backlash against the band that was exacerbated by the four-year gap between their first and second albums. When the second album, ''Start Something'', was finally released, the band achieved even greater success, entering the UK album chart at number four and earning the band international popularity, most notably in the United States. The third album, ''Liberation Transmission'', was released on June 26 and June 27 2006 in the UK and US respectively, entering the UK album chart at number one. The band's highest charting singles so far are ''Last Train Home'' and ''Rooftops (A Liberation Broadcast)'', both of which reached number 8 in the UK Top 40.
