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 celebration of the release of a three-disc set by the Universal Music Group, The Professionals reformed in October 2015 (minus Steve Jones and with the addition of Tom Spencer) for a critically acclaimed, sold out 100 Club show.
Fast-forward to 2017 and the new band spearheaded by Paul Cook, Paul Myers and Tom Spencer are set to release the first material under the Professionals name in 35 years with the full blessing of founding member Steve Jones.
We’re in the process of finishing a very special album and we’ll be starting a preorder campaign through Pledgemusic at the end of the month so you can follow the journey as we build up to the official release later in the year.
So far the album already features a handful of special guests, all lending their distinctive sounds including Marco Pirroni (Adam and The Ants), Billy Duffy (The Cult) and of course, Steve Jones. More guests to be confirmed as we get nearer to the release date.
We hope you’ll join us on this next exciting chapter of the band.
Paul Cook, Paul Myers & Tom Spencer.
