Prong-live at Cobra Lounge TONIGHT.   ChiIL Live Shows will be there...will YOU?   We'll be shooting stills and have a full review up shortly.

Prong Premiere New Song on Noisecreep 

New Album Carved Into Stone In Stores April 24th on Long Branch Records

Check out the exclusive premiere of "Ammunition" courtesy of Noisecreep HERE.

PRONG are currently on tour with Crowbar and Witchburn, in support of their forthcoming release Carved Into Stone which is set for an April 24th release date on Long Branch Records, a division of SPV.

The song "Eternal Heat" is streaming courtesy of Metal Insider.

PRONG has completed work on their Long Branch Records debut with producer Steve Evetts.  PRONG (whose lineup includes bassist Tony Campos and drummer Alexei Rodriguez) has taken a major step forward in their constantly evolving brand of sonic schematics.

Carved into Stone is quintessentially PRONG. It stretches into the band's earliest and dirtiest foundations on which the band was founded on New York's Lower East Side to the present as a staple of today's post-metal and rock scenes.

PRONG recently unveiled the tracklisting and the album art for Carved Into Stone. The artwork was created by Vance Kelly (Down, The Sword)

Noisecreep says:
On April 24, Prong will release Carved Into Stone, the post-metal pioneering band's eighth studio album. Produced by Steve Evetts (Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die), founding vocalist/guitarist Tommy Victor commented about the album, "It was hardest I've ever worked in the studio on any record I've ever been involved with."

"I always believed there were many dimensions to Prong," says Victor. "Every record we've been associated with different scenes - hardcore, metal, industrial - even dance! I think this record brings all of that together and sounds very modern at the same time."

In this Noisecreep exclusive, we're proud to bring you the exclusive premiere of "Ammunition," a track off of Carved Into Stone. The song is a lean and mean slab of riffy metal that will have you air-guitaring at your desk within seconds!

Featuring members of 90 DAY MEN, ATOMBOMBPOCKETKNIFE, STERLING, and YAKUZA – BLOODIEST continuously blow our minds and our eardrums with the menacing and malevolent classical and drone inspired metal found on their debut Descent, an album whose LP release we are celebrating to night.  

Trebuchet Magazine says a listen to the LP will leave you “almost comatose. After returning to a normal state of mind a few minutes after the album has finished, uncurling from the fetal position on the floor you’ll find yourself in if you have truly been listening, the only thing that will come to mind is simply, ‘What the fuck was that?””  

That can only mean fantastic things when churned out on the Empty Bottle stage.  To gear you up for the auditory beating, we are excited to welcome back PLANETSEXPLODER celebrating a release of their own – an EP they’ll have available at the show that lives up to their reputation for being so loud they were asked to relocate out of their old practice space so as not to upset the neighbors.  WINTERS IN OSAKA return to open here tonight -  having gone past their punk influenced noise roots, the outfit is now creating quieter, spookier ambient/drone music and has added members of HARPOON and BONGRIPPER to the fold.   

If you’re looking to have your mind shattered this 4.20, this is where you need to be.
