Contest Winner Announced For PRONG's New York City Show This Friday!
Ladies and gentleman, we have a winner for a pair of tickets to the return of PRONG to their stomping grounds of New York City! Mr. Sal "El Capitan" Suarez responded the following question correctly, and will be grooving with PRONG on the Hudson River!
When the bands front man Tommy Victor founded PRONG in the late 80's, he had a side job at a Rock venue in New York City. What was his job and were was he working at?
Sal's correct answer: Tommy Victor used to work as an Audio Engineer at CBGB's.
PRONG will be part of the Metal Insider Rocks Off Concert Cruise aboard the Star of Palm Beach. This special show will take place tomorrow (Friday October 19th) and is an official CMJ Show.
Support on the bill will come from This or the Apocalypse, For Sleeping or Jumping and Eminence.
Tickets for the show are on sale now and are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. The cruise departs from Pier 40, located at West Houston St. at West Side Highway.
PRONG frontman Tommy Victor commented on the bands homecoming:
"PRONG has not played NYC since the release of our latest album 'Carved Into Stone Actually', we haven't done a gig anywhere in the five boroughs in a very long time. So I'm happy to announce our return home as we board the Rocks Off Cruise on Oct 19th for the Metal Insider Party at CMJ. The boat rolls out of New York Harbor and from what I hear it'll be circling the Statue of Liberty while we're on stage. What a great way to celebrate our return!"
Tickets available HERE!
PRONG is out on the road in support of their latest release 'Carved into Stone', which is quintessentially PRONG. It stretches into the band's earliest and dirtiest foundations on which the band was founded on to the present as a staple of today's post-Metal and Rock scenes.
'Carved Into Stone' can be ordered from Amazon HERE. Be sure to check out the deluxe iTunes edition which features an exclusive bonus track which is a cover of the Rammstein track "Feuer Frei".
