As they prepare for their mammoth European tour with Clutch, THE PICUREBOOKS have finished work on their upcoming album "The Hands Of Time" and are proud to present the single 'Howling Wolf'.
Shot in Yucca Valley, California, 'Howling Wolf' puts the band right at home - endless open roads, surrounded by nothingness, going nowhere fast. Accompanied by good friend Imogen Lehtonen (who appeared on the band's very first cover and in their 'Your Kisses Burn Like Fire' video), THE PICTUREBOOKS love of friendship, motorcycles, old guitars and dirty Blues is perfectly captured.

"The lyrics to 'Howling Wolf' say it all," declares frontman Fynn Grabke. "'I was raised a someone guitar in hand - leaving this small town into foreign land'. That´s what our lives are all about. Touring our asses off, coming to your town howling like wolves!"
The new album "The Hands Of Time" was produced in the band's own studio by THE PICTUREBOOKS and Claus Grabke, and will be released on 08 March 2019 just after their Canadian tour with Monster Truck.
Fynn Grabke (vocals, guitar) and Philipp Mirtschink (drums) comment: "On our next album we´re introducing a bunch of instruments we had never used on an album before. For 'Howling Wolf', the Mandolin fit perfectly, adding an all new vibe but keeping true to The Picturebooks sound aesthetic."
