“Madoline” is the first single from the upcoming “Every Day Is Picture Day” EP by Picture Day



“Madoline” by Picture Day is the “MP3 at 3PM” at MAGNET, a featured download at Spinner, andSong of The Day” at KDHX, St. Louis

“I can’t front like Robert Pollard hasn’t been a huge inspiration to me,” says Brian Wiegert of St. Louis-based band Picture Day about the Guided By Voices frontman. “‘Madoline’ is us consciously trying to do something upbeat. The chorus is inspired by Del Shannon and Frankie Valli, except with Brian May-style layered guitars.”

Check it out for yourself as MAGNET, Spinner and hometown independent music radio station KDHX–St. Louis have all featured the hook-filled track recently.  “Madoline” will appear on the upcoming Picture Day EP “Every Day Is Picture Day,” out April 16th.  The catchy, to-the-point tunes on “Every Day Is Picture Day,” show off the combination of chops and sense of humor that defines this band.

Influenced by confirmed rock legends such as The Who, Bowie and the previously mentioned Guided By Voices, Picture Day also embraces the unexpected by participating in Ween tribute nights, fostering a hip-hop side project with three album releases to date under the name MLD, and performing with self-described ragtime entertainer, Pokey LaFarge (a St. Louis sensation who appears on Jack White’s Blunderbuss.)

“It occurred to me some years ago, that music is the one thing that no one is forcing me to do,” says Wiegert. “I punch a clock, and when I’m done, I drag my ass to band practice because I want to hear some loud guitars.”  Picture Day’s latest EP “Every Day Is Picture Day” arrives on April 16th, 2013. The single “Madoline” is streaming now. Members of Picture Day are available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
