NYC’S PRONG ANNOUNCE NEW ALNUM, “STATE OF EMERGENCY,” OUT OCTOBER 6TH, WATHC THE NEW LYRIC VIDEO FOR “NON-EXISTENCE,” HERE
It’s been four years since heavy metal stalwarts Prong released their acclaimed Age of Defiance EP, and this fall, they make their eagerly anticipated return with the release of their 13th studio album, State of Emergency, out October 6th, 2023 through Steamhammer/SPV.
The earned experience of having sat at the forefront of the heavy metal scene in the US and around the world for many decades now has given Tommy Victor and the band the foresight to know what’s ahead, and to and to keep churning out that impeccable recipe of punk, metal, post-punk noise, doom, blues and thrash that makes up Prong‘s sound.
State of Emergency is a furious tableau of East Coast aggression, enveloped in that classic Prong sound that never goes out of style. The album’s first official single, Non-Existence, is a perfect picture of its overall sound.
About the track, Prong founder Tommy Victor comments, “Non-Existence’, with its techno-style noise guitar that’s omnipresent on this album, is a bit like my retrospective glance at Rude Awakening.”
Watch the lyric video for, Non-Existence, below.
