PICTURESQUE TO RELEASE ‘MONSTROUS THINGS’ EP ON NOVEMBER 20
Picturesque has announced that they will release their new EP, Monstrous Things, on November 20 via Equal Vision Records and is now premiering “Unannounced” via Alternative Press.
The new EP is comprised of three songs from their self-released, self-titled EP and three brand new songs, all of which were recorded with Erik Ron (Hands Like Houses, Set It Off, I the Mighty) in Los Angeles. The album tracklisting can be found below and pre-orders are available now at equalvision.merchnow.com.
“Monstrous Things is a continuation of the debut self-titled EP we put out independently last December. With the new songs on the EP, I focused the majority of the writing about the end of a six year relationship that left me in a dark place,” reveals vocalist Kyle Hollis. “I just wanted to sleep until I felt better, as if I were physically sick, but I wasn’t even safe when I was asleep. Every dream I had ended the same dismal way. I ended up shutting myself off from the world for about a year and a half. Towards the end of the relationship I started writing letters to my ex because it was the only way I could get her to respond to any form of communication. “Unannounced” might be my favorite song on the EP because this is the last letter I’ll ever write to her. It couldn’t be more fitting that it’s the first new song we release.”
The Lexington, KY-based quintet is led by the truly stunning vocal range and power of Hollis, and supported by an equally impressive musical blend of rock, post-hardcore and pop influences.
Picturesque also recently released a music video for “Speak Softly”, which can be seen now at Youtube.com/equalvision.
To date, Picturesque has shared stages with the likes of Beartooth, SECRETS, and Too Close to Touch. The band will head out on a US tour with Our Last Night this Fall, kicking things off in California on November 11. All upcoming tour dates can be found below.
Picturesque features Kyle Hollis (vocals), Zach Williamson (guitar), Dylan Forrester (guitar), Robert Mote (bass), and Cole Clark (drums).
