Do you remember the fun old days when it took the Prodigy seven years to get round to releasing an album? Yes, they’d sent out Dirtchamber Sessions, but between Fat of the Land and Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned there were seven years and many false starts.
Now it’s barely four years later, and el Prodge are saying the next studio album will be out before five have passed.
New album to be released on March 2nd
It’s the news we have all been waiting for. We can now tell you the new album is called “Invaders Must Die” and will be released on The Prodigy’s imprint, Take Me To The Hospital, through Cooking Vinyl, on March 2nd. Liam Howlett, Keith Flint and Maxim all feature on the album, which is the first time since the release of Fat Of The Land in 1997. The result is back to their bone shaking best, a collision of old skool rave noise with the stratospheric limits of new technology.
And, he said somewhat excitedly, they claim to have at least one cool man on board to help out.
So, here’s the thing: will they keep to that timetable, or will they let it slip like they did the last time? It was, after all, around 2000 when they started saying that AONO was on the way. So do we expect another four years to go before we actually get our hands on a nice little disc?
