NEW ALBUM ‘THE DAY IS MY ENEMY’ OUT 30TH MARCH 2015 – http://po.st/ProdigyStore10 + http://po.st/DayIsMyEnemyiTunes13 Pre-order the new album ‘The Day Is My Enemy’ now and get three tracks to download immediately
The Prodigy releases their new album ‘The Day Is My Enemy’ on March 30th and you can now hear it in full exclusively on iTunes in the run up to release. The band introduced the album in January with the uncompromising first single ‘Nasty’, followed shortly after with the album’s title track, shaping it up without doubt as one of the most exciting albums of 2015.
The band’s new single ‘Wild Frontier’ came backed by the equally brilliant animated video devised and directed by Mascha Halberstad, watch the video here http://po.st/WildFrontierYT
Alongside the album streaming on iTunes the band also reveal the much anticipated ‘Ibiza’ featuring Seaford Mods. Perfectly encapsulating Liam Howlett’s comments regarding the integrity (or lack thereof) in some of today’s dance music culture and the sanitised superstar DJs that fill the white island, the track is another shining example of The Prodigy’s heart-on-the-sleeve punk rock spirit they’ve always championed. Ibiza will be released as an exclusive limited edition glow in the dark 7” for Record Store Day on April 18th.
The Prodigy play a huge tour in May including 2 sold out nights at Alexandra Palace in London. They have just returned from Australia where they played several tracks from the new album live for the first time at the Future Music Festival. UK and EU festivals confirmed this summer include a headline at the Isle of Wight Festival, T in the Park, Rock Werchter and Benicassim, amongst others.

Today, alt-J premiere the video for Pusher – the latest track to be lifted from their critically acclaimed album This Is All Yours. Created by renowned collective Division Paris and directed by Thomas Rhazi, the video focuses on a man trying to speak louder to an uninformed society, addressing both freedom of choice, and love and hate.
The concept was imagined by frontman Joe Newman and director Thomas Rhazi. Thomas says: “The original idea was Joe’s one. It was about a guy breaking his neck in a very poetic way. We spoke about the British Speaker’s Corners – all those men and women in the late 70’s preaching for their own reasons and beliefs. I wanted this film to be very humanist and as deep and simple as it could be.”
The message that alt-J and Thomas have created is both penetrating and thought provoking: “The hero does the most excessive act because he can’t do anything else – shaking up people’s minds in those dark and sad times”, says Thomas.
alt-J are nominated for two awards at the BRITs 2015: British Group and British Album for their second number one selling LP This Is All Yours, which was also nominated for Best Alternative Music Album at the 2015 Grammy Awards. The nominations follow the three they received at the BRIT Awards 2013: British Breakthrough Act, British Group of the Year and British Album for their debut, An Awesome Wave, which also won the 2012 Mercury Music Prize and received the 2013 Ivor Novello Album Award.
This Is All Yours debuted at number one in the official UK album charts and number four on the US Billboard 200 upon release in September, and has sold in excess of half a million copies. The album contains the singles Every Other Freckle, Left Hand Free and Hunger Of The Pine, and is available to stream and buy in CD, digital and double-vinyl editions.
