ENTRANCE Announces the February 24thRelease of New Full-Length Studio Album –
Book of Changes on Thrill Jockey


Album Follows Limited Edition Promises EP Release & Successful US, UK and EU Tours with Beach House, Explosions in the Sky, and Scott Fagan

 
New York, NY – ENTRANCE is Guy Blakeslee, a Baltimore-born, Los Angeles-based musician who is preparing to release a new full-length studio album – Book of Changes – on February 24th.  The 10-song set is the first new ENTRANCE album in more than a decade and was produced by Blakeslee with the help of American songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist David Vandervelde (Father John MistyTim KinsellaJay Bennett) who also mixed the album.  Additional mixing came from Chris Coady (Future IslandsCass McCombs, Tobias Jesso Jr.) who lent his talents to focus track “Always the Right Time.”  The album was mastered by Grammy Nominated engineer Sarah Register (David BowieThe Shins).
  
Book of Changes documents the journey back to ENTRANCE for an artist who has gone through a creative rebirth.  Blakeslee takes you on that transformative trip with him, with his powerful vibrato and rich baritone, uplifting and transporting the listener throughout the album.  A self-taught guitarist, he flips a right-handed guitar to be played left handed and often finger picks his electric guitar.  On the new album he’s joined by several very talented friends including former bandmate Paz Lenchantin (PixiesSilver Jews), Frank Lenz (Pedro the LionThe Weepies) and Lael Neale.  In addition, the accompanying art by LA-based critically-acclaimed artist 
Amanda Charchian further conveys the ideas expressed in song through the imagery; with the cover featuring the lone and confident subject holding freshly blossomed orchids - reflecting the changes Blakeslee has gone through himself.

The new album follows the September 16
th release of Promises – a limited edition ENTRANCE EP that was supported with a series of live performances including select headlining shows that had Blakeslee premiering his new band as well as supporting slots with Beach House (US, August), Explosions in the Sky (UK, October) and Scott Fagan (UK/EU, October) that featured ENTRANCE as a solo act.  The response to the live shows has been incredible, with ENTRANCE drawing comparisons to Jeff Buckley,Luther PerkinsIron & Wine and Rufus Wainwright
 
Book of Changes is out February 24, 2017 on Thrill Jockey.
