NEW ALBUM – “SHELTER OF BONES”  RELEASED 25 FEBRUARY 2022 MARCH/APRIL 2022 UK TOUR WITH SPECIAL GUEST “ARIELLE”

Award-winning South African blues rock guitarist Dan Patlansky will release his new studio album Shelter of Bones via Virgin Music Label and Artist Services on 25th February 2022.  The album is available to pre-order from https://DanPatlansky.lnk.to/ShelterofBonesSo.

Patlansky will support the album with a nationwide UK tour from March 31 – April 12 with special guest Arielle. 

Shelter of Bones was recorded over a three-year period from 2019-2021.  “The pandemic allowed me to take my time, and really think about how I want the songs to come across,” reflects Patlansky.

“In many ways I tried to keep the sound from past albums that I’ve become known for in my arrangements and song writing, but definitely took some different turns along the way. I’ve always seen a record as a time capsule of where an artist is in a particular time of their lives.”

For Patlansky, Shelter of Bones covers a three- year period of many ups and downs, and, as a result, the South African guitarist believes the process has been a very interesting journey.

“My goal is always to try make a record that I would want to listen to,” says Patlansky. “I’m very happy and proud of this album. I produced it myself because I wanted a very particular sound. On three of the tracks, I enlisted a good friend and ex-keyboard player from Hamburg, Tom Gatza, who brought a fresh feel to these songs, especially the ballads (I’ll Keep Trying and Shelter of Bones).

Shelter of Bones is an accurate representation of who I am currently as an artist, which is a modern twist on what I love most, the Blues.”
