    Agreed on that.

    "Liberation Transmission" was trash to me. A few good songs, though.

    Punktastic interview Ian: http://www.punktastic.com/interviews/185

    Alternatively, here are the more interesting parts:
    On the recording of the next album:
    "We are hopefully recording the album this summer. Start in June and it should be all done by the time we play Reading. As for when it comes out, fuck knows. Id like to get a single out sometime after summer, but im sure we will leak a lot of shit at varying points through the year. As for song titles and an album title, we pretty much have it locked down. Im not gonna tell you them all, but il give you two titles. 'Next stop Atro City' and 'For he's a jolly good felon'"
    On what we can expect:
    "A dark, negative, horrible record. This is the first time i have really been myself lyrically. I mean the other records were me, but it was just a part of me, the part that wanted everyone to get off their asses and stop being so fucking apathetic. But i have said all i wanted to say about that, and by doing so i ignored the other part of me, the part that makes up most of my character which is a sarcastic, cynical cunt. I didnt want to make another postive record, it would just be trite and boring. This is a total negative record, and its so fucking exciting to do it, cause we have never done that before. Its a lot heavier, angrier, arrogant and sarcastic."
    On a possible DVD:
    "We will release a DVD at some point, but when we do it will be an anthology type of thing. We have filmed everything from our first gigs in tjs with boysetsfire and snapcase, and there being 10 people there, to us headlining GIAN last year. I want it to be a movie of our life basically, not just a bullshit cobbled together live set, with a couple of videos and a backstage "messing around" bit."
    On the changes in the band's musical style:
    "since the day we started we have always done whatever we wanted to do and written whatever songs we wanted to write. Our first demos were weird hybrids of Vision of Disorder and Dog Eat Dog. We had, and still do, have so many influences and all came from the metal/punk/hardcore background, but loved pop music and loads of other random shit. Part of the reason i left Public Disturbance was cause the scene was becoming so narrow minded, and people would only support bands if they were from the right pedigree, no matter how shit they were. It got to a point where i just wanted to write whatever music i felt like writing at that point in my life, and you couldnt do that in ukhc. So, to answer the question, the only thing that has helped influence the progression is lack of respect for any genre or label. We have no plan."
    On Liberation Transmission:"we wanted to write an unashamedly big, pop/rock record and i think we totally did. A lot of people didnt like it cause it was TOO pop, and i can totally understand that, but what they have to realise is that we have always done whatever we wanted, and just because this one was pop doesnt mean for a second that the next one will be. We have always been like that. Just when you think you have us figured out, we will change it up again. Risky yeah, but im not in a band to play it safe. Even though the songs on the last record may sound safe, it was a big risk because they WERE so pop."
    On Bullet For My Valentine:
    "The singer for that band has a very big mouth and a seemingly very small brain. I guess he has a lot of pent up jealousy and frustration because we got signed when they were still a rap metal band, and i dont think he has ever gotten over it. A few bandwagon jumps later and they landed on their feet, but rather than being happy, he still couldnt let it go. He seems like a mysoginistic jock who feels like he has something to prove constantly. The rest of the guys seem nice enough and stu even did one of their early demos, but i dont think the band as a whole are the sharpest tools in the shed. So they keep mouthing off in interviews about how shit we are or how he wants to fuck my exes etc etc. Seems pretty redundant to me, but there ya go. I think he will grow up one day. They arent a bad band by any means."
    On morons:
    "Im sure that in the pop world people are told and forced into certain situations, but more often or not in the rock world you arent forced. Yeah, things may be suggested but you dont have to do them, and yeah if you dont do them you may run the risk of falling out of favour with the label, but nevertheless, at least with us, everything always has and always will be our choice. Blame us for everything. Nobody tells us what to wear, and why would they?? Bottom line is that we have been in the public eye for 7 years, and if you are wearing the same things, or look the same as you did 7 years ago, then i'll think you are making sense and give your question a lot more time, but im willing to bet that if you looked at a pic of you 7 or even 4 years ago, you wouldnt recognize yourself. Its just a a part of growing up and changing, you get into different things and different phases. Ive never met one person who has looked the same and liked the same things for 7 years, and until i do, these questions will always make you look fucking moronic."
    On a possible Public Disturbance reunion:
    "haha, im ready whenever. I saw the guys a few weeks ago at a Twist the Knife show. Everyone apart from Mckee is up for it apparently. He just hates everything now, but im sure we can cheer him up and talk him round at some point. Id love to do another record with them or an ep also. I think the kids are ready for the old guns to show people how it's done.....haha"

    What happened between Ian and Matt? I never heard anything about it.
    So... I'll keep searching for a place called home.
    I'll rip my roots from this earth into the unknown.
    Is it for the dreams I chased or the ones I caught?
    This mystery, this misery is killing me.
    So, now, I'll leave behind a murder scene.
    My life isn't real; it's just s silhouette.
    And, when the sun goes down, I won't exist.

    I remember reading an interview when B4MV were just emerging where they were asked what they thought of other Welsh bands, and after they mentioned how they were fans of Funeral For A Friend and one or two others Matt said that Lostprophets could suck a cock, or something along those lines. I think he might have accused them of selling out as well. Not long ago they slagged off bands who style their hair and all that which could be seen as an indirect swipe as well. That definitely seems to be the gist of what he has against them. It's a bit childish really, but then with most musical feuds it's either that or Tupac and Biggie.

    This might sound fickle but I've just listened to Start Something end-to-end for the first time in a while and I want to take back what I said before. It's an amazing album.

    I actually loved all of Lostprophets' albums (obviously, since they're my favorite band, hence my screenname).

    That interview with Ian was GREAT. I love that guy to death and it sounds like the new album is gonna be great.
    Shawnee Smith is pure pwnage.

    Ahh. I see.

    When I'm famous I'm going to knock off every band every by just saying "everyone who isn't me is terrible."

    Controversy...

    Their last effort was wank.

    Start Something on the other hand was brilliant.

    If this isn't brilliant, well then I'll be dissapointed.

    Yep that's the song they played at the show I went to last week. Sounds pretty decent.

    I dunno why everyone is trashing Liberation Transmission, I thought it was a pretty awesome album. Of course it wasn't better than Start Something but it was still a great album.

    I think people tend to dislike Liberation Transmission because it was such a change in "their sound"

    They've played at least 3 new songs - Atro City/Atrocity, Weapon, The Dead and possibly one more that I can't think of. I'd post links but I'm using a Wii right now.

    They're all sounding good though, especially Atrocity.

    We gave our lives to learn how to fly on our own only to find out the edge of all we known - it was just a painted sky; a clever disguise to make the heavens reflect in our eyes. And all I see is all there is to be seen.

    The new songs they've played sound more like tfsop than anything else they've recorded.

    Maybe for some, but Start Something was also a major change in "their sound" after thefakesoundofprogress (perhaps even moreso than Liberation Transmission), and most people still liked it. Not all, but most.

    I just thought it sucked, personally. Couldn't listen to many songs in a row without stopping.
