* ADOLESCENTS - "Kids Of The Black Hole"
* THE SISTERS OF MERCY - "Vision Thing"
* KILLING JOKE - "Seeing Red"

* NEIL YOUNG - Cortez The Killer
PRONG's latest release, "Ruining Lives", came out earlier this year via SPV/Steamhammer.
The band will take part in SLIPKNOT's Knotfest on October 25 in San Bernardino, California.
PRONG recently completed filming a video for the song "Remove, Separate Self", taken from "Ruining Lives". Brian Cox and Marcelo Palomino directed the clip.
SPV/Steamhammer released a new digital single of "Remove, Separate Self". There are two versions of the single, which was made available on September 12. The seven-inch single will be released on October 24. The standard version of the single will include the following tracks:
01. Remove, Separate Self (album version)
02. "Separate Self, Remove" inspired by and created from "Remove, Separate Self" by PRONG (Matt Heafy de-mix)
Comments TRIVIUM's Matt Heafy about the "de-mix" he created: "With 'Remove, Separate Self', I was initially engulfed by hints of images and characteristics of a futuristic, dystopian world. Whether that was the initial intent of the piece or it was meant to be something entirely different, that became the feeling I kept coming back to. Perhaps with the main line — the title itself — the idea of 'separating yourself' made me think of unplugging oneself from something larger; whether metaphorically from an old way of life or literally in some sort of mecha-future. The idea was to take it one step further, to take the song itself, components of it, and a few secret ingredients, and create that world a little further that I imagined in the first place.
"Sometimes 'remixes' do it right, but I wanted to take a completely different approach to what people think a 'remix' is in the first place, even one's idea of what a song should sound like."
The exclusive iTunes edition of the single features a bonus track, which is a version of "Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck". This song was taken from PRONG's "Unleashed In The West - Official Bootleg".
