Legendary punks Rat Scabies and Paul Gray are preparing to release their 4th album as Professor and the Madman. Seance will arrive on November 13 via Fullertone Records on yellow vinyl, CD and digital download. Pre-order here.
Professor and the Madman have no shortage of credibility. They consist of former members of The Adolescents, DI, The Damned, UFO and Eddie and the Hot Rods. The UK and SoCal legends include guitarist/vocalist Alfie Agnew, guitarist/vocalist Sean Elliott, bassist Gray and drummer Scabies.
According to the band, the 12 tracks on Seance work together as a sort of classic rock concept album. The story revolves around a group of friends who hold a seance to say goodbye to deceased loved ones, and the songs are less punk influenced, and more informed by ’60s and ’70s rock.
