German duo  The Picturebooks kick off U.S. headlining tour dates following this weekend’s performance at NYC’s prestigious Governors Ball festival. The band then flies to L.A. to play The Echo on Tuesday, June 9th, then onward up the coast. Please see complete dates and more at RidingEasy Records.
The Picturebooks also released a new video today for the album track “E.L.I.Z.A.B.E.T.H.” available to   watch and share HERE.

It’s not surprising that The Picturebooks recorded Imaginary Horse 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. Utilizing gear Fynn’s dad Claus had accumulated over years as a record producer and musician, the band had two independent releases in Europe before signing to RidingEasy in 2013.

The pair has played many major European festivals while also touring relentlessly, including stints with Eagles of Death Metal, International Noise Conspiracy, Spinnerette and more. Imaginary Horse is available on LP, CD and download via RidingEasy Records as of January 21st, 2015.
