Keith Flint, frontman for post-rock/hardcore/electronic band The Prodigy, died a little over a year ago. The band had released their last stellar album, No Tourists, the previous year, and were in the process of creating new music when the musician was found dead after taking his own life.
Speaking on Paul Danan’s ‘The Morning After’ podcast a year after his death, the band’s former keyboardist Leeroy Thornhill revealed that the band will be finishing the album the group was in the process of writing when he died.
“We got together on the anniversary of Keith’s death and went out to celebrate his life,” Thornhill said. “I know Liam wants to finish The Prodigy album he was doing, I don’t know how far along he is.”
Leeroy was part of the group from 1990 to 2000. Flint joined the group in 1996 and lent his voice and unique personality to the band’s landmark album, The Fat Of The Land.
The upcoming eighth record will be the follow-up to 2018’s No Tourists, which was the fourth and final LP to feature Keith’s vocals and co-writing before his death.
