The band explain “It’s a story of the chaotic and troubled journey of our gang, our band, the people’s band – The Prodigy.”
The Prodigy have announced online that they are working on a documentary film detailing the complete story of their band.
In 2019, the world of music grieved along with The Prodigy in the wake of the tragic passing of frontman Keith Flint. At just 49 years young, the revered voice of the band took his own life and left the world in shock.
It seems as though now, the remaining members of The Prodigy are prepared to not only tell their story, but honor the memory of their fallen brother.
Maxim and Liam Howlett shared, “We are making a band documentary film… so fukin what?? After the devastating passing of our brother Keef in 2019, the time feels right for us to tell the story of our band, all of it, the whole 9… It’s a story of the chaotic and troubled journey of our gang, our band, the people’s band – The Prodigy.”
Detailing the direction of the documentary the band added, “…a story of brothers on a mission to make noise… to ignite the people’s souls and blow-up sound systems worldwide… that’s fukin what! This film will be made with the same integrity that our music is: uncompromising, raw and honest…This one’s for Keef!”
the film is a creative partnership with Maxim and Liam Howlett and global content studio Pulse Films. The documentary will be directed by Paul Dugdale, who has previously helmed visual efforts for the band, most notably, the 2011 concert film, The Prodigy: World’s On Fire.
As reported via Billboard, Dugdale explained, “The film will be as wild as the band. Dark at times, strong changes of pace, it will be a visual assault too, stylistically striking, contemporary and challenging. We want the viewers to leave the cinema like they’ve just stepped off a roller-coaster.”
The news comes as the band has confirmed that they have continued working on a follow up album to their 2018 release, No Tourists.
