The music community was dealt another incredible loss on March 4th with the untimely passing of @TheProdigyOfficial’s Keith Flint. As part of the group’s first North American tour in a decade, they were scheduled to play #WelcometoRockville this year and we are devastated they will no longer be able to perform. @TheCrystalMethod has stepped in to bring you an unforgettable performance in their place.⁣ ⁣ The Crystal Method on Prodigy:⁣ ⁣ “I like so many have been shocked by the sad reality that another iconic and influential member of the music community has taken their own life. I personally want to send my deepest condolences to Keith’s wife and family… and to his band mates. In the dozen or so times TCM shared a stage or played a festival with The Prodigy, I witnessed some phenomenal performances. Liam’s beats and propulsive sound was the sonic Fuck Yeah that so many of us old school ravers needed while Keith’s raw combustible energy and cyber punk persona served up the right amount of Fuck You to the establishment! I never really hung out with Keith and only had the briefest of personal interaction with him but he was always kind and I know he will be missed. #RIP”

Are Crosses (Deftones, Etc.) Teasing Their Return?

Crosses (aka †††), the band featuring Chino Moreno (Deftones), Shaun Lopez (ex-Far), etc., appear to be teasing their return. The group, who haven’t updated their social media pages since 2016, have just shared a new image on Facebook, which you can see below. The band were supposedly working on a new album when they went dormant, so maybe the material will finally see the light of day. However, this is all just speculation at this point, so we will just have to wait and see.
