July 11, 2016 — Guy Blakeslee has resurrected his pioneering solo project ENTRANCEand thanks to a newly minted deal with Thrill Jockey will be releasing a four-song EP – Promises on September 16th with a full-length ENTRANCE studio album to follow in early 2017.

Promises is a record about "the interplay and conflict between inwardness and outwardness," says Blakeslee, who underwent a rigorous daily practice of "automatic writing" — waking up and immediately documenting the thoughts running through his head — while working on this new material.   Blakeslee's newest creations are rich, cinematic songs that feature expansive orchestration and imaginative storytelling, putting the main focus on Blakeslee's voice, his words and the feelings they evoke.

Among his fans, Blakeslee counts the likes of Spike Jonze, who featured ENTRANCE's interpretation of Skip James’ “I'm So Glad” in his acclaimed 2013 film Her.  In 2011 Animal Collective chose Blakeslee to play the All Tomorrow’s Parties they curated and he’s joined Father John MistyCat Power,  Spiritualized and Warpaint on the road.

Throughout Blakeslee’s nearly 20 year career as a musician and recording artist he has always been a seeker, exploring a wide range of emotions and states of consciousness; Promises sees him discovering a fresh confidence and serves as a bold declaration of a strong new chapter in the story of ENTRANCE.

Blakeslee produced the Promises EP and enlisted LA artist Amanda Charchian to create the cover art.  The four-song set was mixed by David Vandervelde at New Monkey Studios in Van Nuys, CA and mastered at the Mastering Palace in NYC by Sarah Register (Future IslandsThe Shins
Moby).
