The electronic rock outfit knocked Hertfordshire singer-songwriter James Bay off top spot last night (Easter Sunday) when the Official Chart Company announced this week’s sales.

The record has received favourable reviews pretty much across the board with Kerrang! describing it as “the most exciting – and most angrily British – album of the year”, while NME called it “the strongest and most confident Prodigy album since The Fat Of The Land”.

The Day Is My Enemy features former University of Hertfordshire student Flux Pavilion on one of its track, Rhythm Bomb.

Flux Pavilion tweeted: “Congratulations to @the_prodigy for writing a number one album! proud to play a part, I’m celebrating with a roast, yeaaaaahhh”

The Prodigy headlined the opening night of Knebworth’s Sonisphere Festival last summer.

And Liam Howlett, Maxim and Keith Flint will appear at this year’s Isle of Wight Festival, T in the Park in Scotland, Rock Werchter and Benicassim, amongst others.

The Prodigy also play a UK tour in May, including two sold-out dates at the 11,000 capacity Alexandra Palace on May 15 and May 16.
