The Prodigy have unveiled new track ‘Fight Fire With Fire’ (ft. Ho99o9), taken from the forthcoming album No Tourists . The band’s twenty-date winter tour – including two shows at London’s Alexandra Palace on November 14 and 15 begins next month.
‘Fight Fire with Fire’ sees The Prodigy partner up with New Jersey’s finest noise crew Ho99o9, resulting in a down-tempo, heavy-grooved, surefire banger. ‘This was the first track I wrote for this album,’ says Liam. “As far as doing a collaboration, the Ho99o9 guys were the main band I wanted to work with, and this tune has so much danger embedded in it. It’s the best collaboration we have done.” ‘Fight Fire With Fire’ is the latest insight into The Prodigy’s forthcoming album No Tourists, and a reminder of a band that has resolutely followed their own route through the underbelly of popular culture since day one. It’s every inch a Prodigy record and it's their most direct, concise and pure statement yet.
“No Tourists is ultimately about escapism and the want and need to be derailed and not to follow that easy set path,’ explains Liam Howlett in his North London studio. ‘In these times we live in people have become lazier and forgotten how to explore. Too many people are allowing themselves to be force fed, with whatever that may be. It’s about reaching out further to find another alternative route where the danger and excitement may be to feel more alive… not accepting that you can just be a tourist. That’s what the title is about for us.”
No Tourists sees The Prodigy return with venom in the way that only they can. They’re renegades, outsiders, outlaws – always hiding in plain sight. Though much has changed in the musical and social landscape, what remains a constant is The Prodigy’s resolute focus to always do things their own unique way, and in 2018 the urgency and irrepressible spirit of The Prodigy has never been more needed.
