Prong to Unleash Covers Album ‘Songs From the Black Hole’
They have been around for nearly 30 years, and many bands have covered their songs. Now Prong are paying tribute to some of the bands that influenced them on 'Songs From the Black Hole,' which will be released March 31 on eOne Music.
Prong picked a plethora of punk, hardcore and alternative artists to cover along with the timeless Neil Young. Frontman Tommy Victor says the goal was to explore the vast landscape that makes up the band's sound. He explains, "Since the record explores Prong's roots, musically and geographically, this needed to be expressed visually and this was attained."
Victor further discusses the album's artwork, saying, "With the help of our art director Mike Lopez, the theme of urban decay, desolation, insecurity and ultimate change that prevails in the music has been brought to the surface in images. Since much of Prong's origins come from a place of abandonment, we feel our new album artwork fully reflects this sentiment."
