The Prodigy have announced plans to release their sixth studio album ‘The Day Is My Enemy’ on March 30, along with lead single ‘Nasty Nasty’ later this month.
It will be the British electronic band’s first album since 2009’s ‘Invaders Must Die’. Previously, group founder Liam Howlett promised to “wipe the floor” with current crop of dance DJs on the band’s “violent-sounding” new record. “We’ve always been like a big broom that’s just cleaning up – wiping the floor,” he said. “They don’t bother us. It’s mainly DJs. If the dance scene is made up of DJs, that don’t bother us.
“We’re in different zones to them. We don’t make music like those kind of acts. We view ourselves as in our own kind of area. We’re fans of some people out there, but when you’ve got a scene built on DJs, that’s not healthy. We need more bands that make this kind of music.”
The album is expected to feature a contribution from Sleaford Mods on track ‘Ibiza’, which was completed last October. A short teaser for LP was released via the band’s Facebook page this week, which you can watch below.
Prodigy have already announced a spate of live dates, including at Australia’s traveling Future Music tour in February, as well as at Rock AM/Rock IM Park in Germany and the Isle of Wight Festival in the summer.
The full tracklisting for ‘The Day Is My Enemy’ is as follows:
‘The Day is My Enemy’
