Jim Davies, formerly the guitarist of Pitchshifter/The Prodigy, has released his second solo album titled Prey Later. With guest appearances from Tut Tut Child and Bullet For My Valentine’s Jamie Mathias, the record comes packed full of massive hooks, weaved in with some crushing electronics and plenty of cynicism.
The album is available via Armalyte Industries and a lyric video for the album’s opener The Bar Is Low is available to watch now.
“I’m hugely proud of this album, feels like I’ve found exactly where I want to be musically,” says Davies. “On my first solo album HEADWARS I covered quite a few styles as I’m into a wide range of music, but on PREY LATER i found myself naturally gravitating towards the more dirty industrial side, where I feel most at home!
“It was great to collaborate with industrial legends Empirion on a few tracks, we first met back in 1995 when they were the main support to Prodigy on the first tour I ever did with them, so it’s cool to be working together after god know how many years! It was also cool working with Bullet For My Valentine Bass player Jamie Mathias on the track “The Killing Way’, his vocals were incredible.
“Releasing the album through the cult ‘Armalyte industries’ label is something I’d been hoping to do for a while now; I feel their community of open minded music fans are going to be quite receptive to the album, as well as being a nice home for me moving forward.
“Overall I think this album is a far more cohesive and honed collection of songs, with a few swerve balls thrown in here as always, I’ve enjoyed the whole process from start to finish so I’m very excited to get it out there and get cracking on the next one!”
