Liberation Transmission is the third studio album by lostprophets. The album was released on June 26 and June 27, 2006 in the United Kingdom and the United States respectively and entered the UK album chart at number one (July 2 for 1 week).

The first single, Rooftops (A Liberation Broadcast), was released on June 19th 2006, and reached number 8 in the UK Top 40. The second single will almost certainly be A Town Called Hypocrisy, as bassist Stuart Richardson claimed in a recent BBC interview.

The album was leaked via BitTorrent for illegal download on June 12 2006, two weeks prior to its official release.

"Everyday Combat" - 5:11
"A Town Called Hypocrisy" - 3:39

Trivia:

This is the first lostprophets album to include the lyrics to album's songs in the album's packaging. thefakesoundofprogress did not include the lyrics, whilst Start Something specifically states that the lyrics could be found on the band's official website, although they no longer can be.
It is also the first lostprophets album recorded without original drummer Mike Chiplin. Josh Freese drummed at the request of Bob Rock, but the band's first choice was Travis Barker.
Both of the other lostprophets albums featured interludes between some songs; no songs on Liberation Transmission are linked together, or feature interludes.
The first line in the chorus of "Can't Stop, Gotta Date with Hate" was taken from a line in the film The Goonies.
The Latin phrase on the album cover, "nobis pro lemma vobis", translates roughly as "for us, for them, for you". This lyric comes from the song Burn Burn, which can be found on the band's previous album Start Something.
liberation transmission is classed as lostprophets 'emo' album.

Rooftops is a single by Welsh band lostprophets, which was released in the United Kingdom on June 19, 2006.

The first airing of the single in the UK recently was in front of 25,000 fans when the lostprophets headlined the Give It a Name festival in Manchester and London.

The song is taken from the number one album Liberation Transmission and was recorded in Hawaii. The b-sides found on the single came from the same sessions - all of which are brand new tracks. The video was filmed on location in Los Angeles, USA and was co-directed by the band and Ryan Smith (of Story of the Year).

Trivia:
When the band pitched their dream video for "Rooftops (A Liberation Broadcast)" to their record label, it was refused because it would have cost 8 million pounds to produce. It subsequently went through several re-drafts before they settled on the final version.
The chorus of "Rooftops (A Liberation Broadcast)" was inspired by the scene in the film Garden State where the characters are screaming into a pit. The general theme of the song also matches the film's — "make a mark" in your life while there's still time.

thefakesoundofprogress is the debut album from the Welsh rock band lostprophets. Released in 2000, it was recorded in one week for around £6000, & while originally intended as a demo went on to be released on Visible Noise Records. When the band signed to Columbia Records in 2001 it was partly re-recorded, remixed & re-released (notably combining many of the between track interludes into the end of songs, shortening the tracklisting) much to the chagrin of fans of the earlier release. This new version was released under Visible Noise in the UK. It includes the singles "Shinobi vs. Dragon Ninja" and "The Fake Sound of Progress".

Often seen as the heaviest of the first three lostprophets albums, many fans regard thefakesoundofprogress as the band's best effort to date.

Track listing
1. "Shinobi vs. Dragon Ninja" – 2:47
2. "The Fake Sound of Progress" – 5:32
3. "Five is a Four Letter Word" – 4:24
4. "... And She Told Me To Leave" – 5:55
5. "Kobrakai" – 5:33
6. "The Handsome Life of Swing" – 3:49
7. "A Thousand Apologies" – 4:06
8. "Still Laughing" – 5:43
9. "For Sure" – 4:20
10. "Awkward" – 4:24
11. "Ode to Summer" – 3:15

Last Train Home is the second single from Start Something, the second album by the Welsh rock band lostprophets. This single is the bands highest charting to date and one of their most sucessful songs. The band refused to release the accompanying music video to MTV's Total Request Live, however, realising it could seriously damage their credibility among serious American rock fans, and thus make it harder for the band to establish a long-lasting career and loyal international fan base.

Wake Up (Make a Move) is the third single from Start Something, the second album by the Welsh rock band lostprophets. This single was under much debate up to it coming out, both lostprophets and their N Prime management wanted the dark, brooding "Make A Move" as a single whereas the label wanted the poppier, catchier "I Don't Know". The band and their management walked away victorious from this battle of wills and the song was released as a single with the modified title "Wake Up (Make A Move)". However, "I Don't Know" was later released for radio airplay in the USA.
