Critically acclaimed and award-winning South African singer-songwriter and guitarist, Dan Patlansky, is pleased to announce that he will embark on a nine-date UK tour in March and April 2022 to support the release of his forthcoming 10th studio album. Special guest on the show will be American singer songwriter, and Brian May guitar protege “Arielle”.
This is the first tour Patlansky will undertake since his Perfection Kills UK tour in March 2018. Since the release of his Perfection Kills, Patlansky has been constantly writing new songs for his forthcoming album released in early 2022.
“I began recording the new record mid 2019 in my hometown of Pretoria, South Africa,” says Patlansky. “I was unhappy with the result and recorded most of the album end of 2019. Covid 19 put the brakes on any touring and release options for 2020. This gave me the opportunity to really refine the album, with a rewrite of a few songs, and re-record of a few tracks in early 2021. “
Continues Patlansky, “I’ve spent the last year building up a following on my Patreon page, which is a subscription-based platform where I release weekly guitar tuition material and content.”
The massive break from normal touring life gave Patlansky the rare opportunity to work on many aspects of his music and craft, which before lockdown he would normally not have time to look at.
Says Dan, “I feel have really made big strides in my playing and singing style, as well as writing, arranging, and production that will be evident on the release of the new record in early 2022.”
