Ahead of their upcoming European Tour, Monster Truck have unveiled their new video for ‘Denim Danger‘.
Speaking about the track, Singer/Bassist Jon Harvey explains “Denim Danger is a classic Monster Truck song about an imaginary street gang. Equal parts Sons Of Anarchy and West Side Story. It’s become a crowd favourite because it talks about having pride in your town and people love wherever they are from or grew up”.
The band will be returning in April-May 2019 for a 25 date headline European tour, calling through; the UK, Luxembourg, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, Poland, Austria, Denmark, Norway and Sweden. They have also announced that they will be joined by Edmonton rockers Royal Tusk on all dates.
Monster Truck finished 2018 with a European Arena tour with Black Stone Cherry and they will be coming back to play songs form their new album ‘True Rockers’, which was released on Mascot Records in September, as well as some of their classics. By the time the tour comes around it would have been 2 years since their last headline run outside the US and Canada and talking about returning for the tour Harvey says, “I f***ing love Europe and the UK! I’m so excited to come back and play a proper headline set to our supporters! We have an incredible night of rock n roll planned. It will be a night no one will ever forget.”
Guitarist Jeremy Widerman also says, “One of our favourite things to do is touring Europe/UK and when we get a chance to headline it’s even better. Expect a long raucous set filled with songs from every album.”
‘True Rockers’ was written during the time on the road whilst they were touring with the likes of Deep Purple, Billy Talent, Nickelback, Jane’s Addiction and more through 2016 and was produced by Dan Weller (SiKth, Young Guns, Enter Shikari) at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, North Carolina in July 2017.
True Rockers’ is the sound of a band letting lose and having fun. Frontman/Bassist Jon ‘Marv’ Harvey affirms, “We want people to listen to it and have fun, have as much fun as possible.” “Yeah, that’s what I was gonna say too,” adds Widerman. “I mean right off the beginning of the album you hear me scream at Marv. That just kicks off the entire vibe of the album. Us in a room, having fun, joking and yelling at each other.”
