The Prodigy are planning their retirement; ‘It’s got to be soon’
The Prodigy’s 6th studio album, The Day Is My Enemy, may also be the band’s last. In a recent interview with NME, both Keith Flint and Liam Howlett acknowledged that their age is starting to become a factor for the group. “There comes point you don’t want to be Uncle Alan at the wedding reception,” Howlett told NME. It’s the first time the band have addressed the idea of retirement during their 25 year run as some of electronic music’s most vocal supporters. “I think that the band’s gonna come to an end at some point,” added vocalist Keith Flint “And it’s got to be soon.”
While their official retirement has yet to be announced, there’s little doubt that the old electronic rockers are nearing the end of their illustrious career. “The people decide when we fuck off, but it can’t go on forever,” says Flint. Until then however, you can catch The Prodigy during their headlining performance at The Isle of Wight or during their UK tour this May.
