Today we want to grab the chance to introduce you to a pretty “new” but already on the top of our “favourite’s list” band:
THE PICTUREBOOKS (GER)
Formed in 2009 the Guetersloh based Garage / Blues Rock Duo can already look back on a remarkable career:
Three album releases, tons of shows supporting bands such as: The International Noise Conspiracy, Softpack, Spinnerette, Taking Back Sunday, Millencollin, 65daysofstatic, Kadavar, Eagles of Death Metal, an extensive tour throughout the USA, a record label deal with RIDING EASY RECORDS & appereances on major festivals such as Sziget Festival already shows that this band has the enormous potential to become one of the top acts in today’s Rock’n’Roll business.
It’s not surprising that The Picturebooks recorded their new album “Imaginary Horse” (2014) in the same garage where they regularly refurbish and repair motorcycles and choppers. The German duo “Fynn Claus Grabke (vocals, guitar)” and “Philipp Mirtschink (drums)” capture a raw, rich, and real energy befitting of the room’s natural reverb, industrial aura, and spiritual spark. THE PICTUREBOOKS sound is rough, pure, incredibly poweful and simply Rock’n’Roll.
Our conclusion: One of the best german outputs in the last years!
Currently on tour with THE ANSWER, the band provided WOOLHEADS with some cool pics they took during their trip. ENJOY!
