Amazing news for rock fans everywhere, two of the world’s greatest guitar players have teamed up for a UK tour in November. Announced today, Dan Patlansky (the man behind the highly acclaimed ‘dear silence thieves’) is set to support the awesome talent that is Joe Satriani. To celebrate, Dan has just unveiled the video for ‘backbite’, the opening track to his latest album and you can view it (alongside the tour dates) below. Before you do, however, here is what we had to say about ‘backbite’ in our detailed review of the album:
“‘Dear silence thieves’ opens with the unfeasibly brilliant ‘backbite’ a song that oozes confidence. It’s the aural equivalent of the millionaire walking into the hotel, cocksure, stylish and aware of the electric effect their mere presence has on the room and it sets a cracking pace. Andy Maritz plays drums like a man possessed, laying down a massive backdrop upon which Dan can paint his picture whilst Clint Falconer adds the funk with his driving bass lines. The final piece to the puzzle is Theo Crous whose keyboards give the piece its Led Zeppelin feel and the whole is just too exciting for words.” You can read our full review here.
Legendary artist and performer and the hardest working guitarist in the business, Joe Satriani, is proud to announce that Award-winning South African guitarist and singer-songwriter Dan Patlansky will be special guest on his Shockwave November 2015 UK Tour.
The news follows the UK release Dan Patlansky’s new album Dear Silence Thieves on April 27, the same day he performs a special album launch showcase concert at London’s The Borderline, followed by dates at Sheffield Greystones (April 28), York Fibbers (April 30) and Poole’s Mr Kyps (May 7).
In December 2014, Dear Silence Thieves was voted #1 in Blues Rock Review’s Top 20 Blues Rock Albums of 2014 online poll. Earlier that year, Patlansky opened for Bruce Springsteen at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg in front of 64,000 people.
