The Professionals, featuring Paul Cook from Sex Pistols, are heading out on tour across the UK for several weeks throughout October 2021. The dates follow the emancipation of their new record SNAFU, which was released on October 8.
The release and tour see the beloved punk band, consisting of Paul Cook, Tom Spencer and Toshi JC Ogwana, joined by adored guests Billy Dufty from The Cult and the legendary Phil Collen from Def Leppard.
I’m really thrilled to be on the the new Professionals album with Cookie and Tom, and a nice bonus, me and Billy Duffy get to play guitar together! comments Phil Collen.
Billy Duffy said: I always heed the call as a territorial when asked to join The Professionals
Along for the journey are ‘blinging underrated players’ Jonny Weathers and Neil Ivison.
The Professionals new record SNAFU, featuring eleven tracks of revitalised and bolstering rock ‘n’ roll, is enough to make any fan’s mouth water with temptation.
