PRONG guitarist/vocalist Tommy Victor has revealed to RollingStone.com that NINE INCH NAILS mastermind Trent Reznor briefly enlisted him for a side project called TAPEWORM that never materialized.
"Actually, that's one of the reasons I threw in the towel for a while," Victor told the magazine. "I was promised so much by that whole camp — not to sound bitter or anything. I went down to New Orleans and worked on some stuff, but I never heard any finished product. But some of that stuff I worked on appeared on some MARILYN MANSON stuff. I was ripped off — that's happened several times."
PRONG have just issued their sixth studio album, "Scorpio Rising", in the U.S. through Locomotive Music.
Upcoming PRONG tour dates:
Mar. 06 - Pinellas Park, FL - Pinellas Expo Center (Sun N' Steel Festival)
Mar. 13 - Irvington, NJ - Cricket Club (March Metal Meltdown VI)
