Prong Enlist Trivium’s Matt Heafy For “Remove, Separate Self” ‘De-Mix’


Prong will soon be issuing an official single for their track “Remove, Separate Self“. Two formats of the effort are planned with Trivium frontman/guitarist Matt Heafy having contributed a remix—or in this case a ‘de-mix’—of the song. Heafy said of his take:

“With “Remove, Separate Self” – I was initially engulfed by hints of images and characteristics of a futuristic, dystopian world. Whether that was the initial intent of the piece or it was meant to be something entirely different, that became the feeling I kept coming back to. Perhaps with the main line – the title itself – the idea of “separating yourself” made me think of unplugging oneself from something larger; whether metaphorically from an old way of life or literally in some sort of mecha-future.

The idea was to take it one step further, to take the song itself, components of it, and a few secret ingredients, and create that world a little further that I imagined in the first place. Sometimes “remixes” do it right, but I wanted to take a completely different approach to what people think a “remix” is in the first place, even one’s idea of what a song should sound like.”

A digital version of the single will arrive on September 12th through SPV/Steamhammer. It will feature the title track, Matt Heafy‘s ‘de-mix’ of it and “Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck“, taken from the groups “Unleashed In The West” release.

A 7″ version of the single will be released on October 24th and run the same sans the inclusion of  “Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck“. Yesterday saw the release of this music video for the “Remove, Separate Self“.
