THE PICTUREBOOKS announce Home is a Heartache Tour 2017


Primal blues-rock duo THE PICTUREBOOKS will perform their blues-saturated heavy rock on the "Home Is A Heartache Tour 2017".

"We are so excited about our own headlining European-tour this year. It’s always fun supporting other bands like "Monster Truck", "Kadavar", "The Answer", "Les Butcherettes" etc, but going out and headlining ourselves makes it so much more exciting. We can´t wait to meet the many friends we made along the way and to make new ones as we go!" says Fynn Claus Grabke, Singer and Guitarist of THE PICTUREBOOKS.

The German duo , also featuring Philipp Mirtschink on drums, performs enticing blues-saturated heavy rock, with Fynn playing on obscure vintage guitars he bought from thrift shops around the world, while Philipp beats a drum set that consists of the largest possible drums that he hits with heavy duty felt beaters. The set has no cymbals whatsoever and instead includes a few self-made percussion instruments with huge chains, bells, and more.

Home is a Heartache serves as the band's sophomore release and Another Century label-debut. The 14-track album was recorded in the band's garage, where they regularly refurbish and repair motorcycles and choppers. The album captures a raw, rich, and real energy evoking the room's natural reverb, industrial aura, and spiritual spark.
