South African singer-songwriter and guitarist, Dan Patlansky, is set to the release his new studio album ‘Perfection Kills’ in the UK on Friday 2nd February 2018. The album is the follow up to 2016’s critically acclaimed ‘Introvertigo’, which was voted #1 Blues Rock Album 2016 by Blues Rock Review. To dovetail with the release of the new album, Dan is currently a special guest on Joanne Shaw Taylor’s nationwide 7-date UK tour that included London’s Royal Festival Hall last night (see today’s Video Of The Day). Patlansky was nominated as one of Classic Rock magazine’s hotly tipped new artists of 2015. His album, ‘Dear Silence Thieves’ received 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 and Patlansky produced the album himself, something he hadn’t done in years.
