35 Jahre nach ihrem Debut kehrt die von den ehemaligen Sex Pistols Musikern Paul Cook und Steve Jones gegründete Punklegende mit einem neuen Album zurück.
Auf “What In The World” liefern The Professionals die wohl energischten und ehrlichsten Songs ihrer bisherigen Karriere.
Formed by Paul Cook and Steve Jones, The Professionals arrived on the scene in 1979 following the demise of the Sex Pistols, but split just 3 years later.
In October 2015, in celebration of the release of three-disc retrospective set by the Universal Music Group, The Professionals reformed (minus Steve Jones and with the addition of Tom Spencer on vocals and guitar) for a critically acclaimed, sold out 100 Club show.
Fast-forward to October 2017 and the new band spearheaded by Paul Cook, Paul Myers and Tom Spencer released their first album of new material under the Professionals name in 35 years with the full blessing of founding member Steve Jones.
The album "What In The World" featured heavy praise from critics and were Vive Le Rock Magazines album of the year for 2017. (See feature in press section).
The album features several guest guitar players lending their distinctive sounds including Duff McKagan (Guns n Roses), Phil Collen (Def Leppard), Marco Pirroni (Adam and The Ants), Billy Duffy (The Cult) and of course, fellow Professional Steve Jones.
