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 BluesRock Album 2016 by Blues Rock Review.
Bluesdoodles loved the album Introvertivgo we said this and more “Introvertigo with its carefully crafted lyrics that blend urbane wit and honest observation, this is blues pertinent to today’s lifestyles, not so much whiskey and women more the corruption of power and social interaction. Ten tracks there are no fillers every number is full of strength and tonal power but there is not an off note or lyric”.
To dovetail with the release of the new album, Dan will be the special guest on Joanne Shaw Taylor’s nationwide 7-date UK tour that starts on Tuesday 7th November at Gateshead Sage. To coincide with the tour, he will release a new single Dog Day taken from the Perfection Kills album. Dan said “There’s going to be a big emphasis on a lot of touring around the new record which I can’t wait for. November 2017 I will be touring with Joanne Shaw Taylor in the U.K and will perform the first single, Dog Day, live for the first time. March 2018 we return to U.K/Europe for the Perfection Kills album launch tour.

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 hometown 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.
Patlansky produced the album himself, something he hadn’t done in years. Says Dan, “I learnt so much working with Theo Crous who was the producer on previous two albums Dear Silence Thieves and Introvertigo. I worked on pre-production and songwriting with Theo on a couple of the tracks for Perfection Kills and applied what I learnt to the recording and production process of the album.”
Perfection Kills is all about my vision of making a record that still make the songwriting a priority as in the past, the final product delivers a far more real and organic result.”
