New album in March followed by tour
The primal blues-rock duo THE PICTUREBOOKS will be releasing their new album “The Hands Of Time” worldwide on 08 March 2019, before kicking off their UK and European album tour in April and May.
“Today, we’re thrilled to announce our extended headline tour through the UK and Europe to present “The Hands Of Time” to our audience. As much as supporting bands like Clutch, Black Stone Cherry, Turbonegro, Kadavar or Monster Truck on their tours is great, nothing beats the feeling of being on your own tour, pulling your own crowd…old friends and new friends, see you on the road!” the band says of the upcoming tour.
“The Hands Of Time” was again produced in the band’s own studio by THE PICTUREBOOKS and Claus Grabke. This time, the duo is introducing a few new instruments to create an all-new vibe to their music, but still keeping true to THE PICTUREBOOKS sound aesthetic.
Their first single ‘Howling Wolf’ is already available – you can check out the video here.
