Lostprophets Return to the States for Summer Concert Tour

Latest Album, Start Something, Certified RIAA Gold

Jun 24, 2004

Lostprophets, the groundbreaking band from Wales, will return to the States in July for a series of North American concert dates with the group's Columbia Records labelmates, Midtown, and Eighteen Visions. The Lostprophets' stateside summer tour kicks off July 15 at the fabled 9:30 Club in Washington, DC (see full itinerary following).

News of the Lostprophets summer tour comes on the heels of the RIAA gold certification of Start Something, the Lostprophets' critically-acclaimed sophomore album. Released in the U.S. in February 2004, Start Something debuted at #33 on the Billboard 200 bestselling albums chart and remains in the top half of that chart.

"Last Train Home," the first single from Start Something, hit the #1 slot on the Modern Rock Tracks chart while "Wake Up (Make A Move)," the latest single from Start Something, has been the Most Added track at both Modern and Active Rock radio.

The Lostprophets' "Lucky You," formerly available only as a rare UK b-side, can be heard on Spider-Man 2 - Music From and Inspired By.

Midtown, who will be providing musical support on Lostprophets tour, also have a track, "Give It Up," on Spider-Man 2 - Music From and Inspired By. A ferociously tuneful post-punk rock ensemble, Midtown reached #90 on the Billboard 200 with the group's DIY album, Living Well Is The Best Revenge, in 2002. Forget What You Know, the eagerly-awaited Midtown major label debut, will be in stores on Tuesday, June 29.
