(Vocal/instrumental group, 1997–present)

Four boys from the Welsh valleys, led by vocalist Ian Watkins, who became one of the UK’s biggest rock bands of the decade. Emerging with a nu metal sound with debut LP Thefakesoundofprogress in 2001, they evolved to a more melodic yet punky style and were rewarded when Liberation Transmission topped the UK charts in 2006. The band, now six-strong, began the next decade with fourth studio LP The Betrayed hitting the UK Top 3 in 2010.
