New prog (occasionally referred to as "nu prog", "alternative prog" or "post-prog"/"post-progressive") is a term used to describe a number of recent alternative rock bands who incorporate elements from progressive rock.
Most notable bands described as new prog include:
- Coheed and Cambria
- The Mars Volta
- Mystery Jets
- Pure Reason Revolution
The term in this sense is relatively new and other labels such as Post-prog have been suggested or used. The term has also been used for some earlier bands, like Radiohead. "New prog" has connections and overlap with the post-rock movement, but is distinct from the much earlier genre of neo-prog.
