It’s been a busy few days for The Prodigy, as news leaked that their first album in six years would be out in March, the posters went up and the gloves most definitely came off, not that we ever expected anything less. The Day Is My Enemy has been described as loud, obnoxious and violent, and that’s just by the band, who also recently claimed that they should be seen as just as an important cultural band as the likes of Blur or Oasis.
‘I don’t wanna pop up on a few more TV programmes saying ‘The Prodigy did this!’ I’m just telling people now that, yeah, I think we are important. When you trace the lines back to the Sex Pistols and the Clash, we are in that line.’ Liam Howlett, The Prodigy via NME.
The Prodigy’s album is out at the end of March followed by a UK tour starting in May.
