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.
