The Prodigy have announced details of new single ‘Timebomb Zone’, the latest track to be lifted from their seventh straight #1 album, ‘No Tourists’.
The band recently played two rapturously-received sold-out dates at London’s Alexandra Palace and continue their extensive European headline tour(with support from Slaves).
The Prodigy now join just the few other UK acts to have landed seven #1 albums, a short list including Paul McCartney and Elton John. No other electronic artists have achieved this.
Listen to ‘Timebomb Zone’ by The Prodigy on the Official Premier League Training Playlist on Spotify.
‘Timebomb Zone’ finds The Prodigy digging deep into the late 80s east London pirate radio sound with a tune that takes us back to the very roots of the band.
Fusing tension with euphoric uplift – and a slice of bad acid alchemy – ‘Timebomb Zone’ is emblematic of The Prodigy doing what they (and only they) do best. In a rare opportunity the band have additionally released the separated musical elements of the single for the first time, with fans able to download and put their own remix spin on this future Prodigy classic.
‘Timbomb Zone’ is a striking highlight from new album ‘No Tourists’, the band’s most urgent, concise and pure statement yet. Here is a group who dominated the illegal rave scene, challenged anti-rave legislation and redefined the whole idea of what a band should be like.
They brought UK electronic music to the US heartland, turning metal kids onto raving and ravers into metalheads. They have effectively reaching global audiences without compromise, with seven #1 albums, 30 million record sales, and multiple honours including two BRITS, two Kerrang! awards, five MTV awards and two Grammy nominations.
