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)
Mar. 20 - Maplewood, MN - First Avenue (Minnesota Metalfest)

I met Tommy Victr way back when he was touring wth Danzig in Buffalo NY. He mentioned side projects he was working on with Reznor and was excited. Reznor helped Danzig on that album Balackacidevil.
