Lexington, KY - December 21, 2017 - Rock band Picturesque is thrilled to share their brand new acoustic video for "Honestly," a melancholy and devastatingly beautiful song chronicling lead singer Kyle Hollis' relationship with his mother. The song comes from the band's debut full-length album, Back To Beautiful, which was released earlier this year via Equal Vision Records.
On the new acoustic video, Hollis shares: "We've had a lot of fun reinventing some of these old songs while we work on new music to release in 2018. We hope you enjoy!"
The band will be hitting the road early next year with Silverstein and Tonight Alive. The six week, full U.S. run, titled "The Get Free Tour," kicks off on January 19th in Cleveland and includes stops in Denver, Los Angeles, Orlando, Philadelphia, New York City, and more. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at picturesqueband.com.
Picturesque is Kyle Hollis (vocals), Zach Williamson (guitar), Dylan Forrester (guitar) and Jordan Greenway (bass). The band released their long-awaited debut full-length, Back to Beautiful, on July 14th, 2017 via Equal Vision Records. The album was recorded in Los Angeles, CA with producer Erik Ron (Saosin, Panic! At The Disco).
On Back to Beautiful, Hollis says, "The title Back to Beautiful is referring to the early days of the band where we had all relocated to Houston and I went through a rough break up. We were engaged, and I thought I had life from there on out figured out, but I didn't. It hit me hard mentally and physically. I wasn't my normal self. I wasn't sleeping enough because I kept having the same nightmares over and over and when I was awake I was lost in my own thoughts of why things were the way they were."
He continues: "I felt like I wasn't good enough for anyone, I felt like I was a burden on everyone around me because I was in this rut and I was afraid I would drag everyone around me down into it. This feeling lasted until around the time we finished the record. It was as if I had gotten whatever was making me ill out of my system and my entire demeanor began to reflect the change."
Picturesque is led by the truly stunning vocal range and power of Hollis and is supported by equally notable instrumentations that blend rock, post-hardcore and pop influences. The band has toured and shared stages with the likes of I the Mighty, blessthefall, Like Moths To Flames, Our Last Night, SECRETS, SYLAR, and more.
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
