    I think it will be POWERLESS. I would hope to see ROADS UNTRAVELED as single though.

    Any song would be OK. Personally I would like IN MY REMAINS, SKIN TO BONE and I'LL BE GONE to be singles. Maybe not UNTIL IT BREAKS.

    How about Skin to Bone? I think it is possible. Though, In My Remains is such a nice song.

    There's not even a third single yet. :/

    LITE just came out last October 5, and there is no way they'll release a new single for another four or five months (or until LITE reaches Top 40, fingers crossed). I saw an article (a Chester interview) that said that the band's planning another video for "Powerless".

    Lets play a game of elimination.

    "Burn it Down" and "Lost in the Echo" are already singles.
    "Castle of Glass", although not officially announced, will inevitably become the third or fourth single.
    "Victimized" and "Tinfoil" for obvious reasons
    "Until it Breaks" because of it's unusual composition.
    "Skin to Bone" and "I'll be Gone" because they are weak songs, in the context of a single release.

    On my list, that leaves
    "In My Remains", "Lies, Greed, Misery", "Roads Untraveled" and "Powerless"

    My bet is on Powerless, since Chester said that they were shooting a music video for it.

    Nah, Skin is not radio-friendly at all...

    LIES GREED MISERY was already used for promotional use, and I'LL BE GONE is not weak in the least bit, Chester's vocal performance is one of the best on the album, if anything In My Remains is weak, of course in terms of vocals and it doesn't sound all that great live. I Don't see Roads Untraveled being a single, not enough lyrics to do much on screen if a music video were to come out and the song itself isn't a great enough ballad like Shadow of The Day was

    I don't think it's Powerless. It's already been featured in the trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. I don't think making it a single and doing another video would make any sense.

    Chester said that there is a POWERLESS music video in the works, he said it during an interview for the soundwave festival 2013

    I always expected either "Powerless" or "Roads Untraveled" would be a single.

    It was confirmed this was a mistake a long time ago... But, I'd love it to be POWERLESS.

    LITE got removed from the UK iTunes and from Amazon as a digtal download. Personally I think that LP is doing a really bad job promoting their singles this cycle.

    The fourth single, however, should be IMR or Powerless. I would love it if RU was a single though.

    Actually, it is. A promotional single is defined as a song released solely in promotion of an album. There is two ways of a promotional single release - A radio-only single that is released for airplay only and not available to the public as a single, or a single release that has been limited to a number of copies or an exclusive to a store or website. For "Lies Greed Misery", it was the latter. It was made available to download (For Free!) right here on our very own playground, the LPA Forums.

    Although this doesn't mean Lies Greed Misery can't be a single. There have been many promos in the past that have spawned into singles. There's two very recent examples I'll toss up. One of them is "The Edge of Glory" by Lady gaga. It was released exclusively on the iTunes store as part of the countdown to Born This Way, but the song became so popular, it became the third single from the album, inheriting a music video and charting on every single chart possible. There's also "Princess of China" by Coldplay, released to radio in the week leading up to Mylo Xyloto. It became the fourth single months later after "Charlie Brown" had failed as the third single.

    Although "Powerless" will most likely be the fourth single, "Lies Greed Misery" can still be a single. Just because it was released as a promotional single doesn't mean it can evolve into a single!
