The Prodigy Release New Album – And Announce Tour
The Prodigy have been making an unmistakable name for themselves since they were first formed in 1990. After 18 years in the music industry, the band is getting ready to release their fifth studio album entitled: “Invaders Must Die”. They are also getting ready to embark on a short UK tour.
The Prodigy is an electronic music group that was formed in Essex, England, by Liam Howlett. They are considered to be one of the pioneers of the Big Beat music genre and their music may incorporate styles such as hardcore, rave, industrial, breakbeat, alternative, big beat and punk. Over the years they have enjoyed an incredibly successful career, with songs such as Charley Says, Firestarter, Smack My Bitch Up, Voodoo People, No Good (Start the Dance) and Everybody In The Place hitting the charts and gaining popularity across the globe. Current band members are: Liam Howlett (composer/keyboards), Maxim (MC/vocals) and Keith Flint (dancer/vocalist). Over the years there has been some confusion regarding the group’s name since it was shortened to ‘Prodigy’ on one of their albums. Howlett has stated that this was done merely to fit the name in with the graphics and that the bands name has always been ‘The Prodigy’.
Now it seems that The Prodigy are busy writing and recording the material for their fifth album and it won’t be long before it is released. If current numbers are anything to go by, the new album should be incredibly popular. Not only have they sold more than 16 million albums during the course of their time making unbeatable rave and dance music, but their upcoming tour of the UK was sold out in one hour after tickets were made available for sale. The Prodigy will be playing at Cardiff International Arena on December 5th, Newcastle Metro Radio Arena on December 6th, Glasgow SECC on December 7th, Birmingham NIA on December 9th, Manchester MEN Arena on December 10th, Nottingham Trent FM Arena on December 11th, Sheffield Arena on December 13th, Brighton Centre on December 14th and London Wembly Arena on December 17th. The group will also be touring Australia and new Zealand next year and their December 1st show at the Olympic Stadium in Moscow is not yet sold out.
