Desperate Measures hit the road with The Professionals tonight!

The London/New Zealand punk and rock four-piece who recently released their brand-new mini album ‘Rinsed’ on Easy Action records, start their full UK tour with Paul Cook’s post-Pistols rockers The Professionals!

Kicking off in Tunbridge Wells tonight (October 13th) and winding up in Chester on the 28th, Desperate Measures are primed to take their hard-hitting punk (with a big helping of rock n’ roll) all over the UK. Featuring the new line-up of founder Eugene Butcher, former Glitterati and current Rich Ragany and The Digressions guitarist Gaff, Ricky McGuire (U.K SUBS, The Men They Couldn’t Hang), and former K-Line/Done Lying Down drummer James Sherry.

Written in lockdown and recorded with Andy Brook (who has produced, engineered, and toured with the like of Status Quo, Ginger Wildheart, Uriah Heep, Hayseed Dixie…) at The Brook Studios in Wallington, Surrey at the end of 2020, the songs on ‘Rinsed’ sees this new line-up of Desperate Measures moving into new musical territories and itching to kick up a racket across the UK.

“We can’t wait to get out there and play our new songs from our ‘Rinsed’ album,” states frontman Eugene Butcher. “Plus, we will be rocking out with Cookie and the Professionals every night! Bring it on!”
