To coincide with his upcoming November 2018 UK Tour, South African singer-songwriter and guitarist Dan Patlansky releases his first-ever Live EP Live 2018 digitally on Friday 9th November. The release of the Live EP coincides with Dan’s upcoming November 2018 UK Tour, which follows his sold-out March 2018 Perfection Kills UK Tour. The EP will be available from all available digital and streaming services.

The EP was recorded at the Rockwood Theatre in Pretoria in 2018.

Earlier this year he released his ninth studio album Perfection Kills.  The album is the follow up to 2016’s critically acclaimed “Introvertigo” which was voted #1 Blues Rock Album 2016 by Blues Rock Review.

The tour kicks off at the Nottingham Rescue Rooms (21 Nov) and includes dates in Norwich (22 Nov), Newbury (23 Nov), Chester (24 Nov), Bury (25 Nov), Leeds (27 Nov), Bromsgrove (28 Nov), London (29 Nov) and Bristol (30 Nov). Tickets are available via www.thegigcartel.com.

Patlansky was nominated as one of Classic Rock magazine’s hotly tipped new artists of 2015. His album Dear Silence Thievesreceived accolades and praise from the British press. He’s been voted Most Promising Male Blues Artist by Blues & Soul Magazine and was also nominated as Best International Solo Artist at the Planet Rock Radio ‘Rocks’ Awards.

Perfection Kills was recorded at Scherzo Productions, a recording studio in Dan’s home town of Pretoria, South Africa. Dan chose Scherzo because he wanted to make a different sounding record and he felt it was the right studio for his vision.

"On record Dan Patlansky is quite superb, but on stage with a capacity crowd in his pocket, he takes it to another level."

Special guests on the tour will be the Mancunian 5-piece band Gorilla Riot. The band play raucous blues-based rock, combining elements of grunge, stoner and country to create a full-on high energy rock show. Equally at home acoustically or electrically they released American Honey Vol 1 in April 2018 which sees the guys extend their sound and song-writing prowess with three new songs plus an exquisite re-working of their hit song, Last Hymn.

"Perfection Kills is all about my vision of making a record that still makes the song writing a priority as in the past, the final product delivers a far more real and organic result.” 

What sets the new album apart from its predecessors is the honesty and live sound of the songs. “To me it feels like a band playing live in the studio which isn’t far from the truth. As mentioned the songs are still the priority and always will be, but on this album they come across far closer to the way they will sound live.  This is the album I’ve wanted to make for a few years now. So all I wanted to do was get the sound and production in my head across to the listeners in a raw and charmingly rough way.”

Perfection Kills is a concept that Dan whole heartedly believes in. Says Dan, “In any art form perfection doesn’t exist because there is no yard stick to measure it by. The pursuit of perfection ends up doing far more harm to the art than good. This was the mind set we adhered to when we went into the recording studio, “Why try to be perfect?”
