Dan Michaelson And The Coastguards Announce New Album 'Blindspot' Out 25 March 2013

Whilst Dan Michaelson's 2011 album Sudden fiction saw him decamp to Marfa, Texas to create a sparse and bare boned lament to failing love, his new record Blindspot sees a return to familiar territory for an album about coming home and picking up the pieces.

Recorded between stints of touring with I Am Kloot, Phosphorescent and Beth Orton, and scoring his first feature film with Johnny Flynn and Lorne Balfe (Lord of the Rings/ Transformers/Inception), Blindspot is a subtle reflection on what is left in the peripheries when all else has been obstructed.

The first single off the album is 'Sheets', released on 18th March, an ode to leaving your troubles at your lover's door, and stepping over the line into a place where the rest of the world disappears into insignificance.

Though Blindspot retains much of the sparse intimacy of its predecessor, here the introversion of Leonard Cohen's Songs from a Room are combined with a widescreen cinematic ambition to form a visceral landscape of sound, swelling and blistering to bursting point with Cellos, French Horns and a scattergun of drums, almost celebrating victory before collapsing under Michaelson's bare unarmed voice.

Dan Michaelson and The Coastguards have announced a London show:

15 March - London, St Pancras Old Church

They will the be joining Beth Orton on her UK Tour in April:

04 April - Bridport, Electric Palace
06 April - Cambridge, The Jusnction
08 April - Newcastle, Mill Volvo Theatre
09 April - Edinburgh, Liquid Room
10 April - Leeds, Irish Centre
13 April - Oxford, 02 Academy
15 April - Bristol, St Georges
16 April - Portsmouth, Wedgewood Rooms
17 April - London, Royal Festival Hall
