The Picturebooks to Support British Lion – Including Pensacola Show



(Gütersloh, Germany – November 22, 2019) – Alternative rock band The Picturebooks announce a handful of headline tour dates in the U.S. this winter. The band will be hitting the road for their headline shows starting January 2nd in San Diego, CA before hitting the road with British Lion on January 18th. Tickets are available for purchase HERE.

The Picturebooks will be touring in support if their most recent full-length album The Hands Of Time which came out this past spring via RED MUSIC. The Hands Of Time, was mastered by Brian Lucey (Biffy Clyro, Marilyn Manson, The Black Keys, Ghost) at Magic Garden Mastering, and is available for purchase HERE.

After relentlessly touring their last two albums worldwide with over 350 shows in the last three years The Picturebooks went back to their very own recording studio, boosting with inspiration and self-confidence. The goal was to add a new vibe to their music while still keeping true to The Picturebooks sound aesthetic. They used their new-found inspiration to work harder on the production of The Hands of Time and to experiment with their signature sound and even introduced new instruments such as piano and tubular bells. They handcrafted some of their own percussion instruments as well, which they will be taking on the road with them to further spice up their energetic live shows. The Hands of Time is about accepting and celebrating nothing but the truth, the ups and downs of life, the tears and laughter and the deep friendship between the two band members Fynn Grabke and Philipp Mirtschink.

The Picturebooks is Fynn Claus Grabke (vocals, guitar) and Philipp Mirtschink (drums).

The Picturebooks Press Raves:
“It’s mixture of powerful singing and a strong instrumental base makes for a good time that lasts the entire album through.” – Metal Insider
“When you first see the genre title Alternative Metal/Rock thoughts immediates turn to bands such as Bring Me The Horizon, Suicide Silence and Fall Out Boy. The Picturebooks defy this theory completely with their very unusual yet impeccable sound.” – Distorted Sound Magazine

“Bluesy, dirty, sun-drenched throwback rock style at its most potent and endearing.” – New Noise Magazine
