Lostprophets vocalist Ian Watkins told Kerrang! magazine: We finished the album and came back from LA, but it felt like something was missing. It didn't feel rounded.

Watkins was raised by his mother Elaine and Church minister stepfather John Davies in a Baptist manse in Pontypridd, South Wales.

Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
