Lostprophets - Weapons: Wikipedia Album Entry
Weapons is the fifth studio album by the Welsh alternative rock band Lostprophets, released through Epic on 2 April 2012. It's the first record featuring Luke Johnson on drums, after being with two other drummers previously, Mike Chiplin, and Ilan Rubin (the latter of whom features in archive recordings included on the deluxe edition of Weapons, as well as the hidden track "Weapon" on both editions). Lostprophets also announced an extensive UK tour consisting of 14 shows which commence on the 15 April 2012 in Dublin and finishes on the 4 May 2012 in London.
Just like the their third studio album it features Latin on the front, which reads deus velox nex. When translated it reads God is swift death.
