Difficulties encountered on The Betrayed

Welsh rockers LostProphets have revealed that they were forced to scrap the first recording of The Betrayed after they were disappointed with the results.

Speaking to XFM, singer Ian Watkins said: “We made one album, and then scrapped it. We just got a gut feeling.

"It's our fourth album, we should know what we’re doing by now."

He added: “This record is the antithesis of everything that’s come before.

"The yin to the yang... The Vader to the Obi-Wan."
