Every dance fan has at least one Prodigy album in their collection. For the fans out there, there's great news on the horizon.

Word has emerged that the band will be releasing a new studio album. The news broke on their Facebook feed with a released date for 2018 and the first single from the album expected to drop later this year.

This has took fans by surprise after announcing that their previous 2015 LP The Day Is My Enemy would be their last studio recording, safe to say we are all delighted to hear the latest news.

Named after the legendary Moog Prodigy synthesiser, it all began with a demo from producer Liam Howlett to Nick Halkes the boss of XL Recordings, and as they say, the rest is history. For the hardcore Prodigy fans, it's been an amazing journey so far. It's been 25 years since their first album Experience and have since released groundbreaking LPs including Music For The Jilted GenerationFat of the Land and Invaders Must Die. The act have always had an anti-establishment stance with their music, performance and perspectives, exploring sounds from the rave scene, rock and breaks. They have achieved two UK number one singles (Breathe and Firestarter), multiple number one selling albums and even radio bans and MTV watersheds, with their explicit content only fuelling their fan's love for the act. 

Only time will tell to see what the guys come out with. Signing to BMG, it's bound to be a massive release. We can't wait.

You can find out more at the official Prodigy website.
