Currently in the studio recording the follow up to their 2017 album Home Is A Heartache, The Picturebooks have announced an extensive run of European and UK tour dates running through to the end of 2018.

The band comments: “We’re very happy to announce our full tour 2018. This year is mostly about writing and recording our next album, but we did manage to squeeze in a few shows here and there! Very happy to be in Spain quite a lot this year and also very happy to have a little 7-show UK part of the tour. We are really hoping to meet a lot of you at any of these shows.”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
