The bad boy electronica pioneers are back, releasing their seventh studio album No Tourists this month. Their influence can be seen across generations, turning metal kids onto raving and ravers into metalheads with genre-destroying record and incredible live shows. Over the year, the trio have clocked up a staggering six No.1 albums, sold 30 million records, played to many millions around the world and won multiple awards. Though much has changed in the musical and social landscape, what remains a constant is The Prodigy’s resolute focus to always do things their own unique way and in 2018 the urgency and irrepressible spirit of The Prodigy has never been more needed.
