Canadian Headlining Tour with The Temperance Movement Kicks off February 23
^New Dates Added
(January 13, 2016 – Toronto, ON) The official music video for Monster Truck’s highly contagious first single “Don’t Tell Me How to Live” premiered via Ultimate Classic Rock. Directed by Davin Black, the sweeping, panoramic new video filmed with the aid of drones, was shot on a very cold day atop a massive rig in the bottom of a quarry in Caledon, ON. Of the new video, Monster Truck guitarist Jeremy Widerman commented, “When it comes to music videos it seems that the bigger a pain in the ass it is to film the better it turns out. Between an improbable 5-story industrial load-in and numerous warnings that the drones’ flight path was too dangerous, the entire video shoot balanced on knife’s edge. Luckily with some unexpected help from Mother Nature we were able to get exactly what we wanted and come out unscathed.” Frontman/bassist Jon Harvey added, “It was cold, it was wet and it was tiring, but it looks awesome. Next time someone says ‘drones’, I’m all ears.”
“Don’t Tell Me How to Live” is from Monster Truck’s highly anticipated forthcoming sophomore album, Sittin’ Heavy, which will be released on February 19, 2016 via Dine Alone Records in North America, Australia and New Zealand and via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group in Europe. The album is available now to pre-order via the band’s webstore, Dine Alone webstore and iTunes. Those who pre-order the record via iTunes will instantly receive “Don’t Tell Me How to Live” and the anthemic track “The Enforcer”. Produced by the award-winning Eric Ratz (Billy Talent, Cancer Bats), Sittin’ Heavy was recorded at Vespa Studios, Revolution Recording in Toronto and Monster Truck’s new jam-space studio.
In support of their new record, Monster Truck will be embarking on a Canadian headlining tour this winter. The tour which kicks off at Sugar Nightclub in Victoria on February 23, features stops in 11 Canadian cities. Due to public demand, the band has added a second show in Toronto at The Phoenix on March 12. The band has also recently announced a show in Kamloops at Cactus Jacks on February 26. Joining Monster Truck for their Canadian run will be British blues rock band The Temperance Movement. See below for all confirmed dates.
