The Prodigy's ground breaking number-one single Firestarter was released exactly 22 years ago this day.
The Prodigy.info wants to wish you all Merry X-mas and Happy New Year. Seems that we are not getting any new single this year but hopefully early next year then. This is nothing new to The Prodigy fans anyway. While we wait article archive is again updated with new scans. One interesting new addition is this Record Collector magazine's article from 1996.
Record Collector - September 1996
The Prodigy is currently road testing new beats. This time a new fill 'Need Some 1' was played at Tilburg, Netherlands 11th of December.
As promised earlier The Prodigy played some new material on their December tour that started 9th of December in Munich Germany. The track itself sounds a bit incomplete, so seems that Liam is still experimenting and testing it live before final mixing.
It's also worth mentioning that Rob was again on guitars.
The Prodigy's most controversial single Smack My Bitch Up was released exactly 20 years ago this day.
The Prodigy's debut album Experience was released exactly 25 years ago this day.

Liam posted a message on Instagram and Facebook that The Prodigy will release a new single before the end of this year and album will follow early next year!
Probable collaborations are the Ragga Twinz, Brother Culture, Shahin Badar and Dizzee Rascal. It's also pretty sure that Olly Burden might have some involvement too.
Liam posted a pic from studio with the new Roland TB-03 Bass line synth. TB-03 is a direct descendant of the famous TB-303 Bass Line Synth which is especially famous of it's acid sounds. It's good to see Liam is really working at the studio since there has been quite much rumors lately about loads of different collaborations going on.
As a side note I have just updated the collections page with Liam's original Roland TB-303.
The Prodigy played their first gig after Rob Holliday left the band in ZÜRICH OPENAIR, Switzerland. Olly Burden from the band Hounds was the new guitarist for that gig. It's not yet sure if he will be permanent guitarist for the band but at least we know that he has been working with Liam with new stuff on studio. Olly has been in the studio together with Liam on last albums and credited on co-writing on "Wall of Death".
The Prodigy announced today on their Facebook page that Rob and the band have agreed to part their ways. This also means that we won't see Rob on remaining gigs this year. We'll see if there will be replacement for him or will the boys tour without guitars for a while.
Theprodigy.info wants to thank Rob for being a vital part of the live shows for 12 years! We wish you all the best in the future! You can read more about Rob on his personal bio.
One of Liam's Roland TR-707 drum machines was donated in 2011 as part of an auction to raise money for The British Red Cross Charity to help people affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. This machine was used by Liam on the Invaders Must Die single. This piece of The Prodigy history has now been added to the collectables section.
The groundbreaking The Fat of the Land album was released exactly 20 years ago this day. The band released a video from Russian gigs that features Mindfields. Mindfields was never released as a single but it was meant to be. You can read more about that on Mindfields promo page.
The Prodigy retuned to Russia and played 4 nights with their standard set. This is no surprise for fans but some would have hoped a lot more since Liam has been constantly saying that there will be at least new beats comin' (if not whole new tunes). I personally feel a bit sorry for the Russian Warriors since they are really dedicated and hardcore fans and would have deserved something special. The band got more than 70 songs (not to include all b-sides and remixes) to choose from and they still play nearly same set than they have been playing years. Is it a too much to ask a little bit of variation? That might actually give some freshness and new ideas to the band also.
As nothing new and exciting isn't really happening I have started to update and build up the Articles section. The plan is to archive the good old days and all that glory from the past years. Now I also have a separate sections for english, finnish, japanese and russian articles & scans!
So fans, please help if you got something to share with the other warriors out there!
The fans are eagerly waiting The Prodigy to drop some new music finally on 2017 as Liam Howlett has promised. Early this week Liam teased us on Instagram with "The Prodigy Rave Heroes" photo. Some fans had hopes for a new EP but as most commented on to the photo that might not the case. Well yes, instead of new music The Prodigy announced an exclusive limited edition art figures collection with award winning British Artist RYCA (aka Ryan Callanan).
RYCA is well known for his series of hip hop legends including figures of biggie, 2pac and eazy-e which led him to approach the band to make his ‘rave heroes’ collection. And as we know Liams love to action heroes and studio "pets" this was a collaboration to happen sooner or later.
The partnership resulted in the creation of a strictly limited, hand sculpted set of chrome-plated 3.75” scale art figures featuring band members Liam Howlett, Keith Flint and Maxim.
Highly collectible, Ryca has produced a limited edition of 250 sets using styling clay and modelling wax to produce a silicone mould from which resin casts are made.
In addition to these there are 10 sets gilded in 23.5ct gold leaf, not available for purchase anywhere, but sent out at random to ten buyers of the original 250 sets of art figures sold.
The boxes feature backdrop artwork from the band’s live shows and are silkscreened and hand printed for each spot colour. Every box is individually numbered and hand signed by Liam, Keith, Maxim and Ryca.
Pre-sale opened Wednesday April 5th at 10am BST, exclusively via The Prodigy website.
General release began Friday April 7th at 10am BST with sets available from theprodigy.com and Art Republic.
RYCA (Ryan Callanan) is an award winning artist based in Essex, UK. Already a prominent artist on the street Art scene, the last three years have seen Ryan move away from this aesthetic towards a new practice that draws upon his in-depth knowledge of materials and craftsmanship acquired through his training in industrial model making and 3-D design.
On teaming up with Prodigy RYCA said “The Prodigy have been the soundtrack in my life since I was playing with action figures, I'm now immortalising my rave heroes as art toys ...”.
Leeroy Thornhill has surprised us all and made a fresh remix of The Prodigy classic. His brand new edit of Everybody In The Place is available on his Sound Cloud.
A tracklist from the soundtrack of upcoming Trainspotting sequel T2: Trainspotting, leaked on Amazon. And yes, it will feature new music from The Prodigy!
Liam teased fans on Instagram when he first previewed their remix back in 2016. Iggy’s original version featured prominently in the original 1996 film but now it has been given a violent reboot courtesy of The Prodigy, while Underworld’s ‘Born Slippy’ has been reimagined also.
While the official Trainspotting social accounts have yet to confirm the news, one thing for certain is that Wolf Alice will make an appearance, since their Silk track features in the T2 trailer.

Today The Prodigy released The Night Is My Friend EP which will feature new The Day Is My Enemy album remixes and live favourite AWOL as a b-side.
Couldn't be happier to get Liam and the boyz back on trax! This track is immense and really wipes the floot with Nasty.
Also the official video is really gorgeous. Well done all!
The Prodigy has announced that they will release a new single on 23.2.2015. The track will be premiered again on Zane Lowe show on BBC 1. Now lets cross our fingers that Liam can surprise us again.
The Day is My Enemy track was surprisingly previewed and released yesterday. Zane Lowe played track THREE times in a row in his radio show on BBC 1. After that the song was released on theprodigy.com and iTunes. This imminent release was probably because Nasty release wasn't really a big success. The track was indeed really poor choice for a first single and Liam might have noticed that too. Shame that this happened a little too late and damage was already done. Nasty is really lacking all the energy Prodigy is known for. The Day is My Enemy is in the other hand better comeback track. It's dark and angry. Really a slap in the face it should be. Industrial sounds with Always Outnumbered styled vocals. A REAL SICK BANGER! Hooray for LIAM!
Video for Nasty is now at youtube. To be honest this track really needs this kind of strong and powerful video to promote it. This wasn't really the bomb that I and other fans were expecting because high the Prodigy standards. Anyway better than this EDM shit out there now and THE PRODIGY IS DEFINITELY BACK. Hopefully the album will bring us more "violent sounding tracks" like Liam has told in many interviews already.
New album title and cover artwork has been finally revealed. The Day Is My Enemy, The Prodigy's 6th Studio Album will be released 30th March 2015.
1. The Day is My Enemy
3. Rebel Radio
4. Ibiza feat. Sleaford Mods
6. Wild Frontier
8. Beyond the Deathray

Last night Spor aka Feed Me played his own remix of Nasty at Worcester Palladium in his Dj set. Recordings of that are already floating around the net. You can hear Keith's vocals, some ethnic melody and even a snippet of Eagle Break. With that very same break Liam used to tease his instagram followers when they were recording new album at Sarm studios.
Edit 29.12. Liam Howlett has now officially confirmed that Nasty will be the first single and released in January 2015!
Spor aka Feed Me just tweeted that he is currently remixing Prodigy.

In the October issue of Q Magazine Liam & the band are interviewed at the studio. Liam also reveals some of the track names. The album will be released in February 2015. Tracks names revealed: Beyond The Death Ray, Ibiza, Nasty Nasty, Get Your Fight On, Wall of Death & Rottweiler.
"Wall of Death is off-the-Richter-scale terror techno, bearing the command 'Fuck you and the heart attack'. The albums one cinematic breather is 'Beyond the Death Ray' where the rhythm drops, allowing a futuristic Blade Runner soundscape to build to critical mass" - Q Magazine

You can easily hear Liam's touch on cover of the Black street anthem no diggity.
Toazted.com has got an interview from Liam, Keith and Maxim at on the 2005 Lowlands festival where The Prodigy was one of the headlining acts. They talked about the new album that will probably see the light of day late next year.
When Toazted.com reporter Paul asked the guys about a new album just before the great show on the main stage, this was the answer we got;
"It's cooking now. We've done 3 bits of music now. It should be out the end of next year. We play 4 new tunes in our set already. On the new album, the fundament will stay the same. Bass, beats and Bullocks. It's kinda what goes on top. The new album is gonna be more melodic."
The guys also told toazted.com about a greatest hits album they will release in October 2005 It's going to be a double album; one cd with their main hits and one with live material, rare releases and remixes.
Liam Howlett of The Prodigy delivers his earth shattering mix for Back To Mine compilation.
Finding some time out from touring their Greatest Hits album 'Their Law', Liam - Prodigy has delivered one of the best albums to grace the Back To Mine decks, from the balls out rock of Queens of the Stone Age to the 2 Tone beat of The Specials.
This compilation is currently expected to be released in January 2006.
03. Memphis Bells
04. Get Up Get Off
05. Hot Ride

The long awaited follow up to The Prodigy's 1997 Fat Of The Land album was showcased in London Thursday. Clips of six songs were played, ’Girlz’, ’Get Up Get Off’, ’Wake Up’, ’Ice’, ’22.214.171.124’ and ’Hotride’.
'Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned' is now almost finished, and scheduled for a release in August this year.
Produced by Liam Howlett the new tracks have a full on sexy, dirty beat with any vocals way down in the mix and no immediately obvious contribution from Keith Flint as frontman.
The new material NME.COM heard was almost industrial in sound, and a marked difference to ’Baby’s Got A Temper’.
Liam told to nekozine.co.uk: "This album is about reminding people what the Prodigy was always about - the beats and the music. The vocals on this record are mostly used as an extension of the sound rather than the main focal point. like 'Jilted' (1994's 'Music For The Jilted Generation') , Keith (Flint) and Maxim weren't involved musically and they are not on this album. ALL three of us will be together to do what we do and play this record live and rock it later in the year, we can't fuckin' wait!
"You will probably begin to hear stuff early summer and the new album will hit in August. "
Starsky And Hutch actress Juliette will guest on the Prodigy's new album after secretly going into a studio to sing on a series of tracks.
Liam and Mamix were blown away by American Juliette’s voice after hearing her burst into song while partying with pals in a Los Angeles bar.
It is also unclear if Keith Flint, who attempted to launch his own solo career last year, is still part of the set-up.
Gene Simmons from Kiss will release a new solo album 'Asshole' in April. The album will contain a cover version of Firestarter. Guitar parts are played by Dave Navarro from Jane's Addiction.
'Carnival of Souls'
'If I Had A Gun'
'Waiting For The Morning Light'

The Prodigyn vokalistina ja tanssijana tunnettu Keith Flint tuo uuden Flint -yhtyeensä Ruisrockiin. Flintin Ruisrockin keikka on osa bändin kesäkuussa julkaistavaa debyyttilevyä tukevaa kiertuetta. Kiertue alkaa Lontoon Scalasta 11.6. Tulevalta levyltä on tähän mennessä julkaistu rajoitetun painoksen omaava single"Asteroids".
Tyylillisesti Flint liikkuu jossain Sex Pistolsin ja Ministryn välimaastossa. Asteroidsilla Keith Flint keuhkoaa lontoolaispainotuksilla kuin Johnny Rotten aikanaan, bändin taustajoukoista kitaristi Jim Davies muistetaan Pitchshifterin riveistä. Kokoonpanossa vaikuttaa ennakkotietojen mukaan lisäksi kaksi rumpalia, Kieron Pepper ja Tony Howlett.
Flintin levyn tuottaa Killing Joke -legenda Youth. Levyltä julkaistaan aluksi yksi video biisistä nimeltään Aim 4. Videosta vastaa ruotsalainen Jonas Åkerlund. Jonas Åkerlund on kansainvälisten markkinoiden kuumin video-ohjaaja viime vuosilta, Äkerlundin provokatiivista kädenjälkeä on nähty mm. Prodigyn, Madonnan ja U2:n videoilla.
