“Revenge … Best Served Cold”, the new video from PRONG, can be seen below. The song comes off the band’s new album, “Carved Into Stone”, which will be released on April 24 in North America via Long Branch Records/SPV. The CD was recorded with producer Steve Evetts, who has previously worked with THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, SYMPHONY X, SEPULTURA and HATEBREED, among others. The cover artwork was created by Vance Kelly (DOWN, THE SWORD) and can be seen below.
“Our video for the song ‘Revenge… Best Served Cold’ came out great! It truly reflects the lyric, which is about totally getting back at someone who did you wrong, without really doing anything obvious,” PRONG guitarist/vocalist Tommy Victor tells AOL’s Noisecreep. “It’s about doing things in a cold way. It has a damp and frigid feel. It’s one of the best PRONG videos ever. Reminds me a bit of the ‘Snap Your Fingers Snap Your Neck’ video!”
According to a press release, “Carved Into Stone” “is quintessentially PRONG. It stretches into the band’s earliest and dirtiest foundations on which the band was founded on New York’s Lower East Side to the present as a staple of today’s post-metal and rock scenes.”
Comments Tommy Victor: “It was hardest I’ve ever worked in the studio on any record I’ve ever been involved with.”
PRONG — whose lineup is rounded out by bassist Tony Campos and drummer Alexei Rodriguez — has taken a major step forward in their constantly evolving brand of sonic schematics.
“I always believed there were many dimensions to PRONG,” says Tommy. “Every record we’ve been associated with different scenes — hardcore, metal, industrial — even dance! I think this record brings all of that together and sounds very modern at the same time.”
