THE SCREAMING JETS Announce Release Date For New Album, Drop Single ‘Second Chance’

Share This:

The Screaming Jets, headed up by legendary rock frontman Dave Gleeson, have shared a further taste of their long-awaited tenth studio album Professional Misconduct via the anthemic new single Second Chance.

Already touted as one of the finest ballads of the band’s near 35-year career, Dave Gleeson explains, “This one’s very introspective. I came up with the lyric during Covid. It’s about those sliding-door moments, thinking about lost opportunities but, more importantly, thinking about new opportunities that might be on the horizon.”

Paul Woseen says, “I sent Dave the lyrics I had, but he’d already come up with his own. Funnily, the vibe of both sets of lyrics was very similar, so we sort of melded the two into this one song. I’m very happy with how it turned out. I think it’s a beautiful piece of music.”

Professional Misconduct, set for release on October 6, is the band’s first full album of all-new music in 8 years, following their love letter to Oz rock, Gotcha Covered, and the 30th-anniversary edition of All For One. Produced by Steve James, who was there for the band’s first record, this album blazes with the intensity of a band that’s just starting out, kicking off with dynamic first single, Nothing To Lose.

It’s been a long and eventful trip for The Screaming Jets, with the band accumulating four Top 10 albums and seven Top 50 singles along the way. So, how have they changed since Better burst into the Top 5 in 1991?

Paul Woseen laughs. “We’re just older, otherwise we’re exactly the same. And that’s why I’m proud of this band, we stayed true to who we are.”
