The Prodigy name their new studio album
Liam Howlett also promises that the follow-up to 'Invaders Must Die' will be 'darker and heavier'
The record, which is the follow-up to their 2009 effort 'Invaders Must Die', has been given the working title 'How To Steal A Jet Fighter', the band's mainman Liam Howlett told NME.
Speaking about the new album in this week's NME, which is on UK newsstands and available digitally now, Howlett promised that the band's sixth studio LP would be "heavier and darker".
Howlett said: "We're really excited about it. The last record was kind of a party album, I guess. We were all happy to be back together again. But the best tunes of that album are the ones that have less of that. It's definitely going to be heavier, darker."
The Prodigy are expected to debut new songs during their headline slot at this summer's Download Festival. They will top the bill at the event along with Metallica and Black Sabbath.
