COOL KEITH!

Before that, Keith Flint's new band Flint will release a limited edition debut single...

Prodigy frontman KEITH FLINT is set to showcase his new hard rock band FLINT at their first ever gig in June.

The band will also release 2,000 copies of their first single ‘Asteroids’ on 10″ vinyl during May, before they perform at King’s Cross Scala on June 11.

The new band, which features ex-Pitchshifter guitarist Jim Davies, Kieran Pepper and Tony Howlett both on drums and an unnamed bassist, have just finished recording their as-yet-untitled debut album with Killing Joke producer Youth.

Flint said his new outfit has the intensity which made Prodigy so popular.

“We all work better at high velocity. If you put an acoustic ballad near Jim he breaks out in spots. We just needed to put total energy into the music, its still got heart and soul, it’s not just blatant abuse, there’s still a little intelligence and melody in it,” he told XFM.

The video for ‘Asteroids’ has been directed by controversial director, Jonas Akerlund, who worked on Prodigy 1997 promo ‘Smack My Bitch Up’.

Flint have also completed a remix of Marilyn Manson‘s new single ‘mOBSCENE’, making the track, “one of their own songs, leaving only a bit of Manson’s vocals and making it a mammoth rock track.”

Keith Flint said that that Prodigy fans should expect their new album, tentatively titled ‘Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned’ to be released by the end of the year.
