The Prodigy Are "Back In The Studio Making Noise"

Five months after the devastating passing of frontman Keith Flint, The Prodigy have revealed that they're back in the studio.

Posting a photo of Liam Howlett looking focussed and tweaking equipment, the band confirmed that they were, "Back in the studio making noise," and that, "Brand new Prodigy tunes are gonna roll."

It's the first publicly known session since the death of Keith in March, and comes after they understandably cancelled all live shows following the frontman's passing.

The Prodigy's manager Nick Halkes – who managed them from the very beginning – described how Keith had an “immense” onstage presence and was an “extraordinary performer”, while also being “witty, charming, pensive and mercurial” away from the settings of a live show.

Download Festival head honcho Andy Copping, meanwhile, told us that Keith “was always respectful; always a bit of a cheeky-chappy; always up for a laugh; he loved what he was doing and above everything just massively respectful. He always had time to say hello when I saw him. He would go, ‘Fucking Download is our favourite festival,’ and he never forgot what it meant them as a band and to him as a person. The festival took The Prodigy and Keith to their hearts and he never lost that – he always remembered that.”
