“A thousand years of evolution” is the new single from PictureHouse to celebrate the British release of Karmarama, the band’s gold album in Ireland. Dealing with issues like infatuation, popularity and lust. “For these things they never train us, beautiful is the same as famous” this tounge in cheek song has a fast tempo, great verses and a huge chorus
Originally released in 1998, “Karmarama” features hit singles like “All the time in the world”, “love in the streets”, “A thousand years of evolution” and the monster summer smash single “Sunburst” which went on to become the most played Irish record in 1999.
The album’s success and popularity ensured that PictureHouse became a household name and the band played sold out shows in The Olympia, The Point Depot, The Opera House in Cork, and headlined the Big Days out in Marlay Park to over 30,000 people. The accolades kept coming; Elton John bought 50 copies for his family and friends, The Corrs invited them onto their stadium tour and ended up having to start each show 10 minutes later when the queue to by PictureHouse CD’s had subsided and fans went back to their seats. The record achieved gold status in Ireland.
Recently united after a 10 year hiatus, PictureHouse returned with new album “Evolution” which saw the band score another radio hit with “rules of science”.
