The Professionals featuring Paul Cook of Sex Pistols are off on tour! Catch the punk legends live across the UK this October over 14 dates, celebrating the release of SNAFU, the new album out now. Dates & Tickets: https://theprofessionalsband.com/shows
Revitalised, re-energised and reinvigorated, The Professionals new album SNAFU follows the release of their critically acclaimed 2017 album What In The World and is “Another step forward from “What in the World” but with keeping one foot planted in our old influences – bit of a stretch? Sometimes – but hopefully keeping true.” – The Professionals.
Armed with unforgettable melodies and catchy choruses, Paul Cook, Tom Spencer and Toshi JC Ogwana are joined by guest guitar players Billy Duffy (The Cult) and Phil Collen (Def Leppard), along with “blinding underrated players”Jonny Weathers and Neil Ivison.
SNAFU and the impending UK tour follows on from the bands’ recent release of ‘Spike Me Baby‘: https://youtu.be/ptZdgpd2uaw
“It’s from the poppier side of the upcoming album and tells the tale of Cookie’s comeuppance after helping himself unknowingly to his daughter’s (herbally enhanced) chocolates. His daughter, the amazing Hollie Cook features on the track with her distinctive backing vocals. Cookie went from peckish, to feeling the end was near, to sitting back and enjoying the ride – he really got spiked by his baby.” – The Professionals.
