PRONG To Launch U.S. Headlining Tour In Support Of 'Scorpio Rising'

PRONG are preparing to embark on a headlining U.S. tour in support of their new release, "Scorpio Rising", on Locomotive Music. "The new music is similar to 'Rude Awakening', but maybe even a little more simplistic," says singer/guitarist/founder Tommy Victor. "This time I started with lyrics, and developed from there, from what I've got going on personally, dealing with this planet Earth. All the songs are about something different, but they’re all about the same thing — innocence gone. The songs on 'Scorpio Rising' are more like a sequel to 'Rude Awakening' — that was about the craziness of the world, and this is more about how I'm dealing with it…"

The current incarnation of PRONG includes Victor, drummer Dan Laudo and guitarist Monte Pittman, a longtime friend of Victor and a former member of MADONNA's backing band. Support at all dates will come from DOG FASHION DISCO, BEYOND THE EMBRACE and ALL THAT REMAINS.
