Toronto, ON – Today, JUNO Award-winning rock band Monster Truck release the music video for their latest single “Get My Things & Go” via BMG.
“Get My Things & Go” is a swampy, bluesy rock ‘n’ roll blast to the face that is at Canadian rock radio, and currently #12 on the Active Rock chart. You can watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alG8NqgX38A&feature=youtu.be
The music video is directed and edited by Dave Lawrence, best known as the creator and star of FUBAR, and produced by Immanuela Lawrence. It brings the track to life, featuring children acting as adults living in a world solely populated by kids.
“We loved the idea of a ‘Kid World’. So we tried to follow the narrative of the song in a world solely populated by kids acting and dressing like adults. In ‘Kid World’, no adults exist except on “MonsterTube” which is populated with fun YouTube style videos kids love to watch made by the band. They play immature adults making a ton of easy money off “MonsterTube” to contrast with the working class struggles in ‘Kid World’,” said the music video director, Dave Lawrence. I really love how it all came together.”
“Working with Dave Lawrence has long been a dream of ours. He’s so effortlessly funny and creative, it’s always been inspiring to us. Dave brings a really amazing feeling of almost innocence to his projects even though the subject matter may be shot-gunning beers and smashing shit,” said Jon Harvey, bassist and lead singer of Monster Truck. “We’d wanted to do a video starring kids, but playing adults, since our second record in 2016, and the whimsical, storybook nature of the lyrics to ‘Get My Things And Go’ were the perfect match for this bizarro world concept. The end result speaks for itself.”
Since the release of their debut self-titled EP in 2010, Monster Truck, comprised of bassist and lead singer Jon Harvey, guitarist Jeremy Widerman, keyboardist Brandon Bliss, and former drummer Steve Kiely, have become known as one of Canada’s hardest-working rock ‘n’ roll bands, a reputation they’ve cemented by touring relentlessly and consistently upping their game.
In 2013 they received a JUNO Award for Breakthrough Group of the Year, and nomination for Rock Album of the Year for their debut full-length album Furiosity. They followed that up with a North American headlining tour, and also shared the stage with artists including Slash and Alice in Chains.
The band continued to deliver new music in 2016 with the release of Sittin’ Heavy and hit the road again with over 150 shows on their own and in arenas supporting Nickelback, Billy Talent, and Deep Purple. They later released True Rockers in 2018, which further cemented their reputation as a hard-rocking band respected by their peers and progenitors.
Over time, Monster Truck has remained true to their core sound while continuously building on that foundation and stretching out, lyrically and sonically. Their ability to do so successfully and satisfyingly has only deepened the impact of their records and grown their audience globally as they gear up to tour and release more new music this year.
