Prong have revealed that they’ll release a new album later this year.

Titled Zero Days, the band say it’ll arrive this summer via Steamhammer/SPV - but stopped short of giving further details.

The US trio also confirmed that they’ll head out on a 25-date European tour in support of the album, kicking off their live commitments with an appearance at the Graspop Metal Meeting in Dessel, Belgium, on June 16.

Founding Prong member Tommy Victor says: “Europe is a special place for Prong and 2017 is shaping up to be another touring year for the history books.

“Many great festivals and great clubs are on the agenda and we will be bringing some new music along as well! We are extremely excited!”

The vocalist and guitarist is joined in the lineup by bassist Jason Christopher and drummer Art Cruz.

Prong’s last studio release was 2016’s X (No Absolutes). Further details on Zero Days will be released in due course.
