One of my top five favorite bands of all-time has a new record hitting the streets on May 13, when PRONG releases RUINING LIVES. Just two years after the release of the excellent CARVED INTO STONE (which I reviewed here on THE ROCK FATHER). Produced by PRONG mastermind TOMMY VICTOR with Steve Evetts (SEPULTURA, HATEBREED) there to add “his shine” to the record, you can imagine that I’m more than a little excited. Here’s what Victor has to say about the forthcoming release…

“This is the fastest written and recorded PRONG-album ever and it has more great songs than any previous PRONG-record. I am particularly proud of the vocal performance and I think we captured some outstanding sounds on this album. There’s a little bit of a throwback element here. Ruining Lives is almost a “Force Fed” type of song. The album is a hybrid between NY Hardcore and some very modern, song oriented work. You will find some “Rude Awakening” but also some solid, crushing riffs. I feel we have captured the best elements of PRONG on this album. “Come To Realize” is something new – we have never approached this kind of time signature. It really is math-metal meets pure hardcore with a crazy-ass riff. What’s exciting about the whole album is you have your hooks, your riffs and something innovative that makes the album very current. This qualifies as the hybrid nature of PRONG: marrying post-punk, industrial metal, hardcore thrash and modern elements – all of that with hooks and not just a bunch of screaming.” Tommy Victor

sdc5If a new record isn’t exciting enough, On April 19th, PRONG will release an exclusive single for the annual RECORD STORE DAY celebration with the new track “Turnover” on side A and a pig remix version of “Revenge Best Served Cold” by Raymond Watts on Side B. The single is limited to 3,000 copies and comes in a green/white marbled vinyl version. A worldwide digital release of the single will occur on April 21. I’ve already contacted a local indie shop to make sure to get one of these ordered for me.
