    The Prodigy's first ever live album and film, World's on Fire, will be released on CD/DVD and CD/BLU-RAY on May 24 through Take Me To The Hospital/Cooking Vinyl Ltd/The End Records. Portraying The Prodigy's biggest show to date from their sold out Warrior's Dance Festival at the Milton Keynes Bowl, the CD/DVD includes their biggest tunes – "Omen," "Firestarter," "Breathe," "Warrior's Dance," "Smack My Bitch Up" and more.

    "A lot of thought went into the place where we could throw the best party. We never wanted the typical stadium venue so, Milton Keynes Bowl was perfect for our first ever UK Warrior's Dance Festival coz it felt like a mad party in a field. The night was massive for us. It was important to us to bring a proper festival day and night for the people to remember and bring the same intense atmosphere like when we play Brixton Academy.... and it was. Standing on that stage was a truly triumphant feeling for us as the whole place kicked off, we looked out and we were fukin proud…… We never intended to do a live DVD, but when we saw the footage we knew it had to be done…and born out of that we realized we had a great live album too!" - Liam, Keef & Maxim….(The Prodigy)

    With the audio for the DVD & Blu Ray versions having been engineered by Liam Howlett himself in 5.1 surround sound it's a chance to re-live that feeling of standing in the crowd all over again, or witness the band's blistering live performance for the first time.

    The release will be a chance for fans to see brand new and re-worked footage of the band including films taken on the road during their 'Invaders Must Die' world tour – see the boys in Brazil, Japan, America and of course select performances taken from their explosive tours in the UK and Europe.

    There are also exclusive gallery photos to explore and some hidden extras to be found via an interactive menu.

    Directed by award winning director Paul Dugdale, the MKB footage was devised with heavy input and direction from the band throughout.
