Monster Truck is confirmed to appear as direct support for Buckcherry in January and February commencing in Idaho Falls, ID on 1/20/14. The band continues to build traction in The U.S. alongside a career in Canada and Europe where they are quickly becoming stars. Singer Jon Harvey offers, “Very excited to rip around the US and Canada with the Buckcherry dudes. North America…get ready to have you face melted!”
Monster Truck and Dine Alone Records have selected “The Lion” as the follow-up single to their debut hit “Sweet Mountain River” from the album, FURIOSITY. The lyric video premiered on GuitarWorld.com and can be viewed here: http://www.guitarworld.com/exclusive-monster-truck-premiere-lyric-video-lion. “Sweet Mountain River” received support, in the US, from rock stations across the country. In Canada, the song achieved the milestone of becoming #1 at the Active Rock, and Mainstream Rock, for eight consecutive weeks. The follow-up track, “The Lion” stood at the top of the Canadian rock charts for six weeks, with an impact date planned for U.S. radio in early 2014.
The band has been filmed extensively as they travel the globe, and recently premiered a short-form documentary capturing their essence. It can be streamed here: http://youtu.be/IYLkY4mxcdk
Monster Truck took home the 2013 Juno Award for Breakthrough Group of The Year, toured their home country of Canada with Alice In Chains, and established themselves as a major headlining attraction. In the U.S., the band has been active, appearing with Kid Rock, Slash, Guns ‘n Roses, Sevendust, and others, performing for hundreds of thousands of rock fans over the course of this year. Overseas, the band appeared on a 29-date run of Europe supporting Vista Chino (formerly Kyuss). In March, 2014, Monster Truck return to Europe as headliners of the “Lords of the Riff, Volume 1″ tour in association with Classic Rock and Metal Hammer Magazines.
Hailing from Ontario, Canada, Monster Truck was formed in 2009 by Jon Harvey (bass, lead vocals), Jeremy Widerman (guitar, vocals), Brandon Bliss (organ, vocals) and Steve Kiely (drums, vocals). What began as a side-project to their other more ‘serious’ bands quickly gained momentum and took on a life of its own. The band has released 2 EPs since their inception; a self-titled, and notably self-released EP produced by Gus Van Go & Werner F (The Stills, Priestess, Hollerado) and The Brown EP (also produced by Ratz) on Dine Alone Records.
Produced by Eric Ratz (Three Days Grace) at Vespa Studios in Toronto and Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC, FURIOSITY showcases Monster Truck’s ability to seamlessly integrate influences from grunge and punk era greats that they love so dearly with alt-sounding vintage rock. The resulting album remains anchored in grooves, yet propulsive and volcanic, fueled by front man Jon Harvey’s colossal and impressive vocal delivery. The Huffington Post exclaimed, “…no-frills classic rock and roll — huge Les Paul guitar riffs, spacey organ fills, thunderous drums, bottom-heavy bass, and one powerful vocalist. The spirit of Stillwater and Grand Funk Railroad lives! I predict these lads will be playing much larger venues very soon.”

EARN MULTIPLE GRAMMY NOMINATIONS
FOR THEIR #1 CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED
“GOD IS DEAD?” SINGLE
THE NOMINATIONS ARE FOR
BEST ROCK ALBUM, BEST ROCK SONG AND
BEST METAL PERFORMANCE
In a year that saw BLACK SABBATH earn the first U.S. #1 record in their career, the band has now been honored by the Grammys® with multiple nominations for their 2013 critically acclaimed 13 album (Vertigo/Republic). BLACK SABBATH’s nominations are for Best Rock Album for 13 and Best Rock Song and Best Metal Performance for “God Is Dead?” The band’s last Grammy win was in 2000 for Best Metal Performance for “Iron Man” from their Reunion live album.
“We are ecstatic, surprised and very happy!” says OZZY OSBOURNE.
For more than three decades, rock fans have hoped for the return of BLACK SABBATH, but few could have predicted the forceful return-to-form of 13, which was produced by seven-time Grammy-Award winning producer Rick Rubin. Entering the charts at #1 in 13 countries, 13 features the original BLACK SABBATH: OZZY OSBOURNE, TONY IOMMI and GEEZER BUTLER. With epic songs like “God Is Dead?,” “End of the Beginning” and “Loner,” 13 is a testament to the enduring relevance of BLACK SABBATH‘s long-running reign. The original BLACK SABBATH has sold over 70 million albums worldwide.
In support of the release of 13, BLACK SABBATH kicked off their triumphant 2013-2014 world tour in April, captured for the just released “Black Sabbath: Live…Gathered in Their Masses” (Vertigo/Republic), available in five different configurations, the most comprehensive of which is a deluxe box including a Blu-ray disc of the live show with exclusive bonus visual extras; two DVD discs; and a CD featuring live audio from the show. North American dates followed, along with shows in South America and Mexico for a headlining stadium tour (where they played to more than 300,000 fans). BLACK SABBATH are currently on the road in Europe through the end of the year and next year. The band also have additional shows in North America and Europe in 2014.
