Tommy Victor (born September 19, 1966) is the lead singer and guitarist for the heavy metal band Prong that he founded in New York in 1986. In the late 1980s Victor worked as a sound engineer at the trendy venue, CBGB in New York City. After the release of Rude Awakening in 1996, Prong disbanded and Victor moved to Los Angeles but continued to release new Prong records. He took a break from Prong during which Victor worked alongside rock musicians including Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Trent Reznor and Glenn Danzig. Since 2012's "Carved Into Stone", Prong have been very active again, releasing albums and touring relentlessly. 2013 saw the band release their "Official Bootleg -- Unleashed In The West"-album which featured re-recordings of 17 classic Prong tracks. The next studio album "Ruining Lives" was released in 2014 and 2015 sees the band release their first ever covers album entitled "Songs From The Black Hole". Victor is also currently working with Glenn Danzig on his upcoming Danzig album. He is also part of the hard rock, heavy metal, hardcore punk and punk rock supergroup Teenage Time Killers.

Tommy Victor has been a Schecter signature artist with a new model just released at this year's NAMM show. http://www.schecterguitars.com/international/guitars/tommy-victor-devil-fr-detail

Victor has toured and recorded with Ministry, and Danzig. He has also provided guest vocals for the Soulfly album Omen. He contributed to the Argyle Park album Misguided, and wrote the main riff for the song "Doomsayer," which he later used on the Prong song "Controller."[2][3] He has a daughter named Victoria.
