Exclusive: The Prodigy Signs With Warner Bros. Imprint Three Six Zero Music in the U.S.
“Plans for The Prodigy are in development, with music and touring to be announced at a later date,” a press release reads.
Warner Bros. and the Prodigy have something to rave about. The highly influential electronic act has signed to Three Six Zero Music, a new label which launched recently in collaboration with Warner Bros. Records.
Three Six Zero is under license from Cooking Vinyl, which oversaw the release of the trio’s last album, 2009’s Invaders Must Die.
The Three Six Zero Group is already home to a number of prominent electronic acts -- like Calvin Harris, Deadmau5, and Nero -- so the Prodigy will be in good company.
The U.K. trio of Liam Howlett, Keith Flint, and Maxim has not yet announced a new release for its new home, but a press release hints more is to come. “Plans for The Prodigy are in development, with music and touring to be announced at a later date,” the statement reads.
Howlett seconded that notion: “Looking forward to seeing some more daylight once the record is done after all this time working on beats in the bunker and looking forward to bringing some fresh noise to the USA again -- bring it on!”
The Prodigy brought considerable mainstream attention to electronic music in the 1990s, with hits like “Firestarter” and “Breathe.” This summer, they’ve headlined European festivals like Sonisphere and Global Gathering, stirring up anticipation for their next release.
“Our partnership with Three Six Zero Music has only just begun and we’re already doing some amazing things,” said Warner Bros. Records chairman & CEO Cameron Strang. “The Prodigy are incredibly influential, and we’re honored for them to be one of the first artists to join our new label.”
