THE Prodigy have announced plans for a new UK tour in May in support of their latest album, The Day is My Enemy.

The band will play a total of 10 dates, kicking off in Newcastle and culminating with two nights at London’s Alexandra Palace.

The new album, The Day is My Enemy, is due for release on March 30, 2015, via the bands own label Take Me To The Hospital through Cooking Vinyl.

It’s described an album that takes you on a journey through the unchartered underbelly of urban nightlife where anger is an ever-present energy lurking just beneath the surface of an edgy calm.

“I can’t tell you why this record came out so angry, I think its just inbuilt in me,” says Liam Howlett.

“It’s more about what I like music to do. I’ve always seen music I like as a form of attack. That’s what I use music for, it’s an attack. I didn’t plan this album to sound violent, it’s just the sound that came out of the studio , a kind of build up over the last 4 years .

‘Anger is an energy’, that’s a lyric which always resonated with me. The tension is buried deep in the music right from the first drop. It’s all about the sound having that sense of danger. That’s what The Prodigy sound is about.”

The Prodigy’s tour dates are as follows (all May 2015).
