PRONG Reveals ‘Zero Days’ Details; Summer EU. Tour Set

Article By: Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker ‡ Edited By: Leanne Ridgeway

Legendary, long-running New York industrial metal band Prong has revealed the details of their upcoming album release, ‘Zero Days‘.

It will be released on July 28th through Steamhammer/SPV as CD digipak, 2LP gatefold, download, and stream. ‘Zero Days’ was once again produced by bandleader Tommy Victor, with trusted collaborator Chris Collier as co-producer and engineer. The album comes as a quick follow-up to last year’s critically acclaimed ‘X-No Absolutes‘.

Tommy shared some thoughts on ‘Zero Days‘, saying:

“I must say a lot of effort was put into this new Zero Days recording. From the minute I would get off tour, I would consolidate ideas from the road and form new ones. Again the focus was on creating good songs. We wanted this record to be modern as well as holding justice to all the previous releases.

“Again and maybe even more than normally I went crazy meticulous with the lyrics. I had built up a lot to say and I wanted to articulate them in the most intelligent way possible. I firmly believe the mission was accomplished all around. We are really pleased with the performances on this record, as well. It’s a solid outing. We have the anthems, the bangers, the thrashers, the grooves, everything that makes up a Prong record. It’s definitely a record to listen to start to finish!!”
