Biker-obsessed, heavy-rockin’ duo The Picturebooks have announced the release of their new album ‘Home Is A Heartache’ on March 10 via Another Century Records. The German duo – featuring Fynn Claus Grabke [vocals, guitar] and Philipp Mirtschink [drums] – perform blues-saturated heavy rock, with Fynn playing on obscure vintage guitars he bought from thrift shops around the world. Oddly, Phil has no cymbals whatsoever and instead includes a few self-made percussion instruments with huge chains and bells.

The Picturebooks explain: “We toured our first album ‘Imaginary Horse’ for more than two years straight with multiple runs in Europe and America – we traveled endless miles in small beat up tour vans on never-ending highways, and lived out of hotels, couches, and sometimes, just the back of our van. When we finally returned home, music started pouring out of us and we finished writing, recording and mixing ‘Home Is A Heartache’ in our garage in just a few months. To us it symbolises this journey we’re on and the music we want to spread, giving it our everything every day and every night.”

The band will soon head out on the road again, hitting these towns in the UK and Ireland (with Monster Truck)
