The Prodigy have shockingly reminded fans of the reality that the band won't be around forever - but the inevitable end may be even sooner than we thought. In a recent interview with NME, The Prodigy have discussed the possibility of their retirement for the first time, admitting that the band is “gonna come to an end at some point, and it’s got to be soon.” 

Both Keith Flint and Liam Howlett discussed the issue of their age impacting the group, with Howlett telling NME that “There comes a point when you don’t want to be Uncle Alan at the wedding reception.” In the bands 25 year run, this is the first time that there has been talk of retirement. The Prodigy’s 6th studio album, The Day Is My Enemy, could then be coming as their last.

While their official retirement has yet to be announced, there’s little doubt that the old electronic rockers are nearing the end of their illustrious career. “The people decide when we fuck off, but it can’t go on forever,” says Flint.

Although The Prodigy feels confident about the band’s end, they have denied a specific time for the conclusion. So until then, we will have to enjoy the group while we still can. You can catch The Prodigy during their headlining performance at The Isle of Wight or during their UK tour this May.
