PRONG Founder TOMMY VICTOR Discusses Band's Early Years

An excerpt from an exclusive interview with PRONG founder Tommy Victor, taken from the upcoming book "Prong: The Early Years" by Joel Gausten, is now available at this location.

Two years in the making, "Prong: The Early Years" features extensive, full-length interviews with Victor and former PRONG members Ted Parsons (GODFLESH, JESU), Mike Kirkland and Troy Gregory (FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, SWANS). Focusing on the band's first five years, the book also includes a full biography and previously unpublished photos culled from Kirkland and Gregory's personal archives.

Available May 1 from, "Prong: The Early Years" will come in two cover editions. Mike Kirkland designed the first cover, limited to 100 copies. The second edition of the cover will include a collage of rare photos taken by Troy Gregory during the band's 1990 "Beg to Differ" tour.

Joel Gausten is the author of the book "Tales of Horror: The History of the Misfits and The Undead" as well as the upcoming book "Albums that (Should've) Changed the World", slated for a fall 2007 release.
