Victor explained in a recent interview with Mark Skaar how Prong regrouped: “We were doing a demo for quite a while and little mishaps here and there prevented us from doing this earlier. Since it doesn’t snow here (in Los Angeles), I didn’t know that four years had gone by with the lack of change of seasons. I had just assumed that four years was two years.

“So, we finally finished this demo up and I hooked up with a manager and he’s like, ‘You know what? We gotta get a record deal and we gotta do a tour,’ and I was like, ‘OK, fine.’ And bam, we’re out on the road again.”

On the subject of what fans can expect to hear at the new Prong shows, Victor said there’ll be lots of Cleansing material – referring to their most popular album – some new songs, and old hits.

The group formed in the mid-‘80s in New York with Victor, Mike Kirkland, and Ted Parsons. Their major label debut in 1990, Beg To Differ, spawned a hit and soon became a regular on MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball.

The band weathered many member shuffles, although Victor remained constant. Their 1994 album, Cleansing, is considered their best work but set a standard that the group failed to live up to. After an ill-received followup album, Prong were dropped by their label and subsequently disbanded around 1997.
