The album, Liberation Transmission, was recorded in Hawaii with legendary producer Bob Rock and the b-sides came from the same sessions and are all brand new tracks. The band, who consist of Mike Lewis (guitarist), Ian Watkins (frontman), Lee Gaze (guitar), Stuart Richardson (bass) and Jamie Oliver (keyboards, programming) formed almost a decade ago in Pontypridd, Wales.
This album is the follow up to 2004's top 5 release 'Start Something' which spawned several hit singles including 'Last Train', 'Burn Burn' and 'Last Summer' and went on to sell over a million copies worldwide and almost 500,000 in the UK. This was a natural progression from 'The Fake Sound Of Progress', the bands debut released in 2000. The band continually toured and surprised people with a phenomenal performance on the second stage at the 2001 Carling Weekend: Reading Festival - the same weekend they took home the Kerrang! Award for 'Best New British Band'. They made a celebratory return to the same festival in 2004 to perform on the main stage.
