The Picturebooks announces two tours – Jan 20th Pensacola Date


(Gütersloh, Germany – January 13, 2020) – Alternative rock band THE PICTUREBOOKS, release the music video for “You Can’t Let Go (feat. Chrissie Hynde)” today! Check out the official music video here: https://youtu.be/-17Zf-rcCjM.

“We played the Harley Davidson festival in St. Tropez with The Pretenders. After our soundcheck Chrissie said she loves the band. At the end of
the night she gave us her phone number and said to call in case we ever needed anything. A few months later we jokingly said: ‘Wouldn’t it be great if Chrissie could sing on our next album?’ We sent her a text and within minutes she replied: ‘Let’s hear the song.’ We weren’t just really surprised, but we also needed a song specifically for her. Two days later we sent what we had and she immediately agreed to record with us. Much to our surprise she was also totally down to be in the music video, too. After checking our music videos she insisted on riding motorcycles with us as well! Amazing Lady,” states THE PICTUREBOOKS about the song and video.

THE PICTUREBOOKS have also just announced that they will be supporting Volbeat and Clutch this spring for the Rewind, Replay, Rebound World tour. The band will be on the tour starting April 5th in Las Vegas and wrapping on May 13th in NYC. Before then, fans can catch the band on the road in the U.S. with British Lion and on the “You Can’t Let Go” European tour.

^festival dates
“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 immediately 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
