Primal blue rock duo The Picturebooks have been extremely lately having signed with US based rock label, Another Century. The Picturebooks will be heading out on A Raw Youth European tour with Le Butcherettes in September.
The tour is not one to be missed as the band have excellent touring experience. They have played alongside Eagles of Death Metal, Kadavar, The Answer, and more, as well as performed at Riot Fest.
As well as all this, The Picturebooks have released a new video for The Rabbit and the Wolf. The song was featured in Imaginary Horse which was directed by Claus Grabke.
The Picturebooks said: “Nothing in the video for ‘The Rabbit and the Wolf’ is staged. We just filmed what happened on tour or when hanging around with our friends, riding choppers, skating etc. Some of it was filmed in Europe and some was filmed in the US. The lyrics in the song kinda describe us and the way we feel when being on tour, so it seemed appropriate to use mostly tour-footage for the video. Most of the smaller locations in this video are what really made this band. People believed in us and gave us the chance to play, even before we were signed. We kept coming back till the place was finally packed. We owe these people a lot!”
Keep your eyes peeled for the band’s Another Century debut. See tour dates and watch the video for The Rabbit and the Wolf below.
