The chart-topping, Welsh rockers Lostprophets will headline a week-long west coast club tour on August 7th, a mere two days after wrapping up their current stint on the Vans Warped Tour. Joining the veteran rockers on the seven-day stretch from Sacramento to Scottsdale, AZ is the Alternative Press “Band You Need to Know,” and fellow Warped Tour artists, Cherri Bomb.
The late summer tour follows the June release of Lostprophets’ latest U.S. LP, Weapons, which marks the first North American release from the band since Liberation Transmission in 2006. The group from South Wales has matured, both in songwriting and success, since their 2000 debut fakesoundofprogress and follow up album Start Something (2004). Blending aggressively edged rock with strong melodic choruses, Lostprophets have become one of the U.K.’s biggest rock bands stacking up a dozen or so top 40 singles and selling over 4 million albums worldwide.
Not to be outdone, Cherri Bomb are one of the youngest bands to ever take the stage at some of the biggest festivals in the world including Reading and Leeds in the U.K., Soundwave in Australia and the Vans Warped Tour in the U.S. With the recent release of their major label debut, This Is The End of Control, the all-girl, L.A. teen rock outfit have received glowing endorsements from established performers like the Foo Fighters and Smashing Pumpkins, with whom they’ve also shared the stage.
This short showcase of talent and grit is sure to be the perfect end-of-summer concert.
