About The Prodigy
The Prodigy have been credited as one of the pioneers of the big beat genre and the group are renowned for putting on unmissable shows. They’ve headlined the biggest music festivals in the world including the likes of Creamfields, Download and Lollapalooza.
It was in 1996 with the release of the tack Firestarter that The Prodigy first saw global success. In the following year their landmark album, The Fat of The Land, was released which included the hugely popular singles Smack My B*tch Up and Breathe.
The Fat of The Land received multi-platinum certifications across the world and scored the No.1 spot in a number of countries including the UK, US, Australia and Canada. The album served as the follow-up to their second release, 1994's Music For The Jilted Generation. The success of their second album couldn't have prepared the band for what was to come when The Fat of The Land hit the record shops in 1997.
Following its release, The Prodigy went on a stupendously successful and very long promotional tour. It wasn't until 2004 that The Prodigy returned with a new album. Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned and Invaders Must Die followed in 2004 and 2009 respectively. While successful, the albums never matched the success of The Fat of The Land.
The Prodigy are due to release their first album since 2009 in March 2015. The album, The Day Is My Enemy, has been described as “an attack” by The Prodigy’s Liam Howlett.
