Produced by Dave Draper, and co-produced by Paul Cook and Tom Spencer, What In The World bristles with conviction and finds The Professionals in electrifying form, delivering some of the most ballsy, honest and downright brilliant songs of their career. They are joined on this album by a stellar cast of guest guitar players including original member Steve Jones (who plays on three tracks). as well as Duff McKagan (Guns ‘n’ Roses), Mick Jones (The Clash), Phil Collen (Def Leppard), Marco Pirroni (Adam & The Ants), Chris McCormack (3 Colours Red) and Billy Duffy (The Cult).
This energetic album features 10 finely crafted songs, full of rock’n’roll attitude - including a tribute to Lemmy and Bowie entitled "Going, Going, Gone," before closing with "Monkeys," the Darwinian pop at world leaders. All the basic tracks were put down at Zak Starkeys studio, just outside London and were finished at Tower Studios in Pershore, while the guests recorded in various studios, both in the US and UK. The resulting album is an aural treat, with no calculated image or reliance on nostalgia.
The Professionals have created a truly honest album and it is the sound of a band at the top of their game, which is an all too rare commodity in today’s world. To give fans a first taste, they have just released the lyric video for "Good Man Down," Track 1 on the upcoming album. Watch below!

Of course there’ll be old stuff played too. We don’t cover Pistols stuff (apart from "Silly Thing") but as the gig’s 40 years to the day from Nevermind The Bollocks was released, we might just add a cover or two!” Tickets are on sale now!
