Picture Posts New Song, "Now It's Too Late," Online, Parts Ways with Guitarist Jan Bechtum and Announces Replacement

Dutch Heavy Metal band PICTURE has posted a special version of the song "Now It's Too Late" on their MySpace page. The special edition of "Now It's Too Late" will stay for streaming for a couple of days on the band's MySpace. The cd version of "Now It's Too Late" can be found on the band's latest album "Old Dogs New Tricks", released on October 1 2009.

In other news, guitarist Jan Bechtum has decided to leave the band. He left with the following message:

"I sadly have to say that I have left Picture. It’s been a great 2 years since the reunion but due to musical differences the ways of Picture and myself have separated."

"I’m very proud of everything we achieved during these last 2 years, with highlights like Sweden Rock and H.O.A. in 2008 and Dutch festivals and the German KIT festival in 2009, as well as writing and releasing the new studio album : Old Dogs, New Tricks."

"I hope that everyone will respect my decision and I wish the remaining members of Picture all the best for the future. As for my future, this surely won’t be the last you’ll hear of me. I want to broaden my musical horizons and I’m already forming a new band and I’m working on plans and ideas to start a very special project."

"I want to thank all the people in the music business who gave Picture and myself the opportunity again to perform on European stages and I especially want to thank all the fans worldwide for their massive support since the eighties until this day. I’m sure we’ll meet each other soon somewhere on stage…… "

The band comments, "With our deepest respect we say goodbye to Jan. He has contributed so much to this band and that will always stay part of PICTURE. We wish him good luck and all the best for the future!"

"For sure, PICTURE will continue and we are happy that we can announce the new PICTURE guitar player : PETER BOURBON! He is of course no stranger in the metal scene and we're very happy to have him on board and have some fun together!"
