The Prodigy share new remix of ‘We Live Forever’ by respected drum & bass producer trio Teddy Killerz. Listen here.
The band have confirmed their sound is still as relevant as ever, having reached number 1 in the UK album charts with ‘No Tourists’, followed by a sold out twenty-date UK and European arena tour, including two shows at London’s Alexandra Palace. The trio is poised to take over North America this May with its first headline tour in 10 years. The tour will combine solo headline shows in Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta, Washington, DC, Boston and New York City (two shows) with main stage performances at some of North America’s finest heavy music festivals including Welcome to Rockville, Epicenter Festival, Sonic Temple and Chicago Open Air. Tickets for solo headline shows are available via theprodigy.com.
The hard-hitting remix follows the release of the original ‘We Live Forever’, a striking highlight from ‘No Tourists’, and a reminder of a band that has resolutely followed their own route through the underbelly of popular culture since day one.
The Prodigy, after all, have never taken the lazy tourist route. They 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, effectively reaching global audiences without compromise: seven number 1 albums, 30 million record sales, and multiple honors (two Brits, two Kerrang! awards, five MTV awards, two Grammy nominations).
‘No Tourists’ is ultimately about escapism and the want and need to be derailed and not to follow that easy set path,’ explains Liam Howlett in his North London studio. ‘In these times we live in people have become lazier and forgotten how to explore. Too many people are allowing themselves to be force fed, with whatever that may be. It’s about reaching out further to find another alternative route where the danger and excitement may be to feel more alive… not accepting that you can just be a tourist. That’s what the title is about for us.’
‘No Tourists’ sees The Prodigy return with venom in the way that only they can. They’re renegades, outsiders, outlaws – always hiding in plain sight. Though much has changed in the musical and social landscape, what remains a constant is The Prodigy’s resolute focus to always do things their own unique way, and that still to this day, the urgency and irrepressible spirit of The Prodigy has never been more needed.
