Inspired by Universal horror movies, the literature of Edgar Allan Poe, and the chaos of the world around them, the four veteran musicians who comprise Professor and the Madman are co-frontmen/songwriters Alfie Agnew and Sean Elliott, alongside the legendary rhythm section of drummer Rat Scabies and bassist Paul Gray. The group’s debut physical album, Disintegrate Me, was released on clear vinyl, CD & download by FullerTone Records on February 23, 2018. It marks Gray’s debut in the group.

Co-produced by the band and David M. Allen (The Cure, The Damned, The Sisters of Mercy), Disintegrate Me’s nine tracks encompass elements of British Invasion rock, Britpop, psych, Prog, power pop, and even country, all underpinned by the melodic punk energy so clearly imprinted on the band’s DNA. Agnew and Elliott wrote all of the songs and take turns singing lead. John Moore of Innocent Words wrote, "It's safe to say Professor and the Madman are the best punk rock supergroup we'll hear all year ... Disintegrate Me is everything you want a debut record to be: original, experimental and memorable."

Disintegrate Me is available now on iTunes, Amazon, and the band's website.
