Prong is currently in the midst of a short UK and European tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of their landmark Beg To Differ album.  Joining mainman Tommy Victor and drummer Alexei Rodriguez are bass players Matt Brunson of Crowbar and former Cradle of Filth bassist Dave Pybus.

Tommy Victor explained the presence of not one but two well know bassists.

“Since Tony Campos (who has been touring with the band and played on Carved Into Stone) is touring with Soulfly, we’ve had to tour with other bass players. Everyone who has toured with us so far has been fantastic and brought their own personal style to Prong. Phil Zeller from Toxic Holocaust did the Crowbar tour. Jason Rapesi who has played with Stone Sour did a few shows with us before that. We were heading to Europe and the guy we had couldn’t do it in the eleventh hour. Rather than cancel, our friend Matt Brunson from Crowbar stepped in and learned the entire Beg To Differ album in a day and a half! Then we found out that Dave Pybus who has played with Cradle of Filth, was going to be the tech on the tour. As it turned out, Dave is a massive PRONG fan! He learned some of the other songs and has been joining Alexei and I onstage every night. Now we have two great bass players each night! This tour has been a blast!”

Prong will resume tearing up the road in the US this July for a string of shows with the legendary Maryland Rockers Clutch.
