Lo-Pro is an American hard rock band formed in 2002 by Pete Murray and Neil Godfrey after the disbandment of their previous band, Ultraspank, in 2001. The band was signed to major record label Geffen Records and released their first album, Lo-Pro in 2003. A year later, after touring in support of the album, they would be dropped from their label. It would be almost six years after their first release before the band would release any new albums, with the band opting to record and re-record several album's worth of material, participate in side-projects, and perform live shows prior to finalizing new music.
This seemingly inactive period would result in the release of the band's Letting Go EP in late 2009, their second full album, The Beautiful Sounds of Revenge, on June 8, 2010, and an acoustic album, Bittersweet, under the pseudonym "Life on Planet 9", on August 20, 2011. The band returned to working under the Lo-Pro name in 2012, recording their third studio album through 2013. The album, titled Disintegration Effect, was released on May 14, 2013. On August 26, 2014, the band will release their second album under the "Life On Planet 9" moniker, titled The Theory of Everything.
