The Prodigy are an electronic dance music outfit hailing from Braintree, Essex. Formed in in 1990, the group consists of Liam Howlett, Keith Flint, and Maxim Reality, who are without doubt the biggest electronic act in the world.
Also arguably the greatest, most popular, and most important rave and big beat acts of the 90s and 00s, The Prodigy have sold over 25million albums worldwide, and are now a world famous act that draw thousands and thousands of fans no matter where in the world they play.
Their 1997 record ‘The Fat of the Land’ is their most popular (it’s certified 3x platinum in the UK, and 2x in the US) and features their seminal tracks Smack My Bitch Up, Breathe, and Firestarter, by no means was that the end of their studio success - every album since has hit #1 and sold well, and led to what we all love most: live tours!
Having put out their last record, ‘Invaderz Must Die’, in 2009, The Prodigy spent the next few years putting on some of the biggest shows - including their Xmas-time Warrior Dance gigs most recently - and appearing at massive festivals across the UK.
In recent years, they unleashed the LP, ‘The Day Is My Enemy’, which hit shelves in March 2015, and was followed by a UK-wide arena tour in support if it, as well as various dates and appearances. They then returned to the studio to work on what will be their next record.
The Prodigy released their latest album 'No Tourists', in November 2018 and supported it with a string of tour dates in the UK and Europe as well as festival slots. For 2019, they have plans in Australia and New Zealand as well as headlining South West Four in August.

To say the Prodigy have not really updated their sound is to miss the point. Like their distant cousins in electronic music Erasure and Depeche Mode they have spent their career honing a particular sonic oeuvre, and their seventh album, ‘No Tourists’, ranks among the best work within it.
