PRONG_RSS_7inch_RZ.indd

PRONG are hitting the the road beginning tomorrow September 10th in Los Angeles, CA through October 14th in San Francisco, CA. This is the band’s first North American headline tour behindRuining Lives The tour.  Many of the dates will see PRONG playing alongside thrash masters Overkill.  Following a quick break the band will be taking part in Slipknot’s “Knotfest” October 25th in San Bernardino, CA. 

PRONG starts our U.S. / Canada tour tomorrow September 9th at the legendary Whiskey A- Go -Go in West Hollywood, CA. This is our first trip on this continent since our release of our Ruining Lives LP, after two successful European tours. We have a new 7″ single out “Remove, Separate Self” and will be selling it at shows as well as our first “Turnover” 7″. This is so cool because it reminds me of the old days when we sold our demo tapes and our initial EP “Primitive Origins” at shows. So please check out our dates at http://www.prongmusic.com. We are also excited about joining up with our old buddies OVERKILL on a good amount of our dates. So come on out and I’ll see you on the road.

 SPV/Steamhammer has released a new digital single and will release a 7″ single of “Remove, Separate Self”.  The digital single is available now on iTunes.

 The standard version of the single will include the following tracks:

1. Remove, Separate Self (album version)

2. “Separate Self, Remove” inspired by and created from “Remove, Separate Self” by Prong (Matt Heafy de-mix)

Matt Heafy about the “de-mix” he created: “With “Remove, Separate Self” – I was initially engulfed by hints of images and characteristics of a futuristic, dystopian world. Whether that was the initial intent of the piece or it was meant to be something entirely different, that became the feeling I kept coming back to. Perhaps with the main line – the title itself – the idea of “separating yourself” made me think of unplugging oneself from something larger; whether metaphorically from an old way of life or literally in some sort of mecha-future. The idea was to take it one step further, to take the song itself, components of it, and a few secret ingredients, and create that world a little further that I imagined in the first place. Sometimes “remixes” do it right, but I wanted to take a completely different approach to what people think a “remix” is in the first place, even one’s idea of what a song should sound like.”

Ruining Livesis the follow-up to the acclaimed 2012 release Carved Into Stone and continues to show the band on an upward trajectory, proving that despite having a long, illustrious career PRONG can still make records that matter and re-invent themselves without negating their roots.  If you have not picked up a copy yet, be sure to get one on Amazon or iTunes.
