The Picturebooks Premiere Video For New Song “Catch Me If You Can” Featuring Chris Robertson (Black Stone Cherry)

The Picturebooks have premiered a new video for their new song “Catch Me If You Can.” This track features Chris Robertson (Black Stone Cherry) and it will appear on the band’s new album “The Major Minor Collective,” which is set to be released on September 3.

The Picturebooks commented:

“Ever since touring with Black Stone Cherry, we became huge fans, especially of Chris Robertson´s voice and guitar wizardry. When we finished writing this song we knew this one was for him. We sent the song over and Chris came back with the most amazing vocals and guitar solo! There was an instant connection and understanding of where this song needed to go, a dream collaboration.”

Robertson added:

“Who the hell could have known that in the middle of a pandemic The Picturebooks would reach out and ask if I’d want to be a part of a song!? What transpired was a therapeutic session of rock n roll, blues and a whole lotta truth! The only way to listen to this is with the volume way up!!“

Black Stone Cherry Perform New Song “Roadrunner” Live At Download Festival

During their performance at this year’s Download Festival, Black Stone Cherry played a new song titled “Roadrunner.” Check out some fan-filmed footage below:

The song will be featured on the band’s new album, which is expected to be released in the spring of 2016. Chris Robertson recently discussed the effort with Metal Hammer, and said the following:

“We’re gonna start recording in October or November and hopefully have the album ready to be released in the spring next year, after the Carnival of Madness tour. We hope to have a new song out for radio before we come over for the Carnival tour.”

“We did this one new song ‘Roadrunner’ and it was awesome. I saw people singing along by the third chorus and that’s how you know you’ve got a song that people can latch on to.”

“The new stuff we’re working on is heavy and it’s got an intensity. It’s kind of leaning back to our very first album. The cool thing is we’ve recorded two songs so far and we’re gonna go back later this year and record the new album in the same place we did the self-titled debut.”
