Biography:Everyone could experience the impact of The Prodigy while communing with their first concert DVD release in a Blue-Ray edition with a CD. “World's On Fire” was filmed at the band's Milton Keynes Bowl gig on 24 July 2010.
Speaking about the film, the band said: "The night was massive for us. Standing on that stage was a truly triumphant feeling for us as the whole place kicked off, we looked out and we were fucking proud."
Years have passed and The Prodigy release their brand new album "The Day is My Enemy", via the bands own label Take Me To The Hospital through Cooking Vinyl. It is 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 it’s 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."
