New Album "Perfection Kills" Out Now

Following his sold-out March 2018 Perfection Kills UK Tour, South African singer-songwriter and guitarist Dan Patlansky will return this year for his November 2018 UK Tour.

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 include 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).

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

- Music News

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 only recently has he been 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.

"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.”

What songs from the new album is Dan most looking forward to playing on the road?

“The first single, Dog Day, and the songs JohnnyMayday and Too Far Gone are first that come to mind. I think all the songs will translate at a different level compared to previous songs on the live stage. I cannot wait to test drive the tunes.” 

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?”
