This March saw the band pay tribute to Keith Flint on the second anniversary of his tragic passing.

Sharing an image taken by musician Jaro Suffner, they wrote: "It’s been 2 years , We miss you so so much brother, Your light burns bright, Your energy will never fade, Keep it real Keep it punk rock We live forever ! LH & MAXIM #weliveforever".

The Prodigy were formed by Liam Howlett in Braintree, Essex in 1990, who met Flint at a party.

The band - who formerly included Leeroy Thornhill - rode the wave of burgeoning rave culture with their debut single Charly, a track that samples the cat from 1970s public information films. It made it to number three in the UK charts and the accompanying album, The Prodigy Experience, also made the Top 20 the following year.

The Prodigy and Flint were most known for Firestarter, the first single from their third album The Fat of the Land, which spawned two number one singles in Firestarter and Breathe.

Their other hits include Out Of Space, No Good (Start The Dance), Voodoo People and the controversial Smack My B***h Up.

The Prodigy’s last album was No Tourists, which was released November 2018.
