The Welsh punk metallers go down a storm in the Far East...

LOSTPROPHETS have been overwhelmed by Japanese fans’ response to the band on their recent trip there.

The band, who will kick of the first night of their tour of the US and Canada tonight (May 4) in Vancouver, are still getting over the response their music received in the Far East.

“We just didn’t know what to expect,” singer Ian Watkins told BBC Radio 1. “Everyone was like ‘You’re gonna go to Japan, there’s gonna be kids waiting for you at the airport and at your hotel room’.


“We were like ‘Shut up, we’re from Ponty, nobody comes and waits for us, and we’re playing a bandstand in Ynysangharad park!

“And there was. There was people there. They came to our hotel and they waited there and they gave us presents, little robots that help you out in the day. Mr Robato, domo arigato!”

The Welsh six-piece will play at the Carling Weekend: Reading And Leeds and the Download Festival this the summer.

The band released new single ‘Wake Up (Make A Move)’ on Monday (May 3), the third to be taken from their ‘Start Something’ LP.
