Lostprophets have announced an extensive UK tour for later this year.

The Welsh band, who released their new album 'Weapons' last month, will play 11 dates across the UK throughout November.

The tour kicks off at Wolverhampton Civic Hall on November 1 and runs until November 14, when the band headline Newport's Centre.

The run also includes a show at London's Alexandra Palace on November 10, which is being put on by the promoters of the US punk traveling festival Warped Tour. So far, the only other band confirmed to play that event are Bring Me The Horizon.

'Weapons' was recorded at Los Angeles' NRG Studios with producer Ken Andrews, who has previously worked with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and is the follow-up to 2010's 'The Betrayed'.

Speaking to NME in a video which you can by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking, keyboard player Jamie Oliver said the band "stopped second guessing themselves" on their fifth album and distilled what's good about their sound down to its rawest place.

Asked about 'Weapons', Oliver said: "To me, this record sounds like the essence of the band without any fat or gimmicks. The reason we were able to do that is because we stopped thinking about it so much, we stopped second guessing ourselves."

The keyboard player then added that he believed the new album was packed with "party songs" and captured all the best bits of the band's back catalogue.

He said of this: "The record, by its nature, has captured all the elements from all the records we've done. It's got the bigness of 'Start Something, the experimentation of 'Fake Sound Of Progress', the pop sensibility of 'Liberation Transmission' and I think we're back to the days of party songs rather than singing about personal things."

He continued: "I feel that 'Weapons' has bridged the gap between when we started working in music and where we are now. All the essence of the band, all of our history, is in 'Weapons'."
