Prong Finishing Up Next Album, New Music Due In January


A new album from NYC alternative metal outfit Prong is currently being wrapped up. The band’s vocalist/guitarist Tommy Victor recently spoke with Heavy New York at last weekend’s ‘Aftershock Festival‘ and revealed that new music will be arriving in January.

He commented:

“I can tell you the single will be out, the digital single, in January. ‘Cause the record is almost done. So for our European tour with Life Of Agony in January, the single will be out. And the [full-length] record [will be out in], I guess, April or something. It depends on when the pressing plant can do it. It’s on Steamhammer/SPV again, the same label. All the basic tracks are done. I’ve just gotta do vocals and solos now.”

The band once again worked with producer Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Sepultura) on that forthcoming 13th studio album. Speaking further on what to expect from the record, Victor added:

“This one is special because it’s the first record I’ve written since I moved back to New York, [to] Amityville. So that concept is there, where it’s, like, you know what? This is where the early Prong stuff was written. I wrote it in my apartment in Amityville, and it’s killer. So that’s the concept, is that it’s written back where I’m from. It’s very hardcore, it’s really heavy, but Prong has to have the hooks, so it’s still in there too. There’s a lot of good choruses and understandable lyrics.”
