Following the success of their recent UK radio tour in May, Perfect Blue Sky has a nationwide UK tour planned for November 2017 with ‘Astronaut’ the feel-good new single released on 20th October, and taken from the new album, The Eye of Tilos. The video was filmed in July by award winning fine arts photographer Mikaela Holmberg in Finland.

Andersson and Kitto formed Perfect Blue Sky in 2014, drawing together a wealth of well-known guest-musicians who share a love of classic rock. The album features Jerry Donahue (guitarist for The Proclaimers and Fairport Convention) and Dave Getz (Big Brother And The Holding Company drummer). Also in the line-up is Frenchman Frank Bessard (Joe Satriani, Stanley Clarke) on drums, and Australian keyboardist Danny Oakhill, Also newcomer is British viola player Lewis Parsons.
