Published Nov 19, 2008Get ready to fire up those rave horns the Prodigy are coming back at us with album number five. On March 2, the long-time dance outfits own imprint, Take Me to the Hospital, will release Invaders Must Die, an album that, according to the band, is "on fire.
The record will be the first Prodigy studio LP since 2004s ill-received Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned and, perhaps more importantly, will mark the first time the bands main man Liam Howlett has worked with vocalists/dancers/fire-starters Keith Flint and Maxim since 1997s mega-successful The Fat of the Land.
"All fucking bands say their new records their best, but this just feels really triumphant for us, Howlett recently told Kerrang! "Its on fire. Its all about the three of us together and what we can do. You know what we deal with: its beats in a predominantly electronic style and its full of fucked-up guitars!
Besides Flint and Maxim back onboard, Howlett also has enlisted a little extra rhythmic firepower by way of Foo Fighter Dave Grohl, who got behind the kit for the new album track "Run with the Wolves.
"Dave emailed us to see what we were up to and offered his services, Howlett said. "It was really inspiring. Its definitely the most venomous track on the album. Keith really goes for it on lead vocals. Its wicked.
While theres no word if and when Invaders Must Die could hit North America (the release date appears to be UK-only right now), the Prodigy have lined up several winter tour dates in the UK, which you can view here.
