Black Stone Cherry And Monster Truck Team Up For New Song “Love Become Law”

The Cherry Truck Band, aka Black Stone Cherry and Monster Truck, have released a new song titled “Love Become Law.” The idea for the collaboration came about after Monster Truck appeared on Black Stone Cherry’s “Cherry Chats.” They then wrote the single remotely during a series of livestreams.

Black Stone Cherry commented:

“The idea of The Cherry Truck Band can honestly be credited to the pandemic that our world is in. We saw tour after tour being cancelled and so many bands were turning to live streaming performances online. We put our heads together with our great friends in Monster Truck and decided to do something we hadn’t seen any other bands do to help pass the time while still entertaining fans. That idea was to write a song, LIVE to the world and divide it up into segments to show our fans the process of writing and creating. We had never done this with another full band before, let alone while we’re live streaming. It was incredibly exciting and fun and we are so proud of the song and more importantly, its meaning! This song is about uniting, being and living as one, and most importantly, loving each and every person that walks this planet. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did creating it for you!”

Monster Truck frontman Jon ‘Marv’ Harvey added:

“The Cherry Truck Band started with a bunch of friends getting together over long distances to create something memorable, meaningful and joyous. Over the five weekly episodes, our entire world basically turned upside down. The people were rising up. The people were tired of being oppressed. The people were tired of suffering for doing nothing wrong. The people were ready to force change. This is our anthem in solidarity to those fighting for basic rights. This is our voices saying, ‘we love you, we hear you, we respect and love you.’ Black lives matter. Without the impact of black culture, there would be no modern music, period. Respect, protect and celebrate diversity. Our world depends on it.”

All proceeds from song will be divided between The Boys And Girls Club Of America and Black Lives Matter.

Black Stone Cherry And Monster Truck Announce “The Cherry Truck Band” Series

Black Stone Cherry and Monster Truck are teaming up for a new series, which they are calling “The Cherry Truck Band.” The series will launch tomorrow (May 13) and it will find the bands collaborating on new music.

Black Stone Cherry commented:

“Black Stone Cherry and Monster Truck have come together to launch a brand new web series, The Cherry Truck Band, starting, Wednesday 13th May at 3 pm Central Time (9 pm BST/10 pm CET), right here on our Facebook page!

Fans will get the chance to see, live, first-hand, upfront and personal the two collaborate on writing a song together. Getting a unique insight into how the creative process works, fly on the wall style.

The idea emerged from Black Stone Cherry’s, ‘Cherry Chat’ episode with Monster Truck’s Jon ‘Marv’ Harvey just over a week ago. The idea blossomed from their conversation together with our Kentucky brothers saying; “We’re so happy to be hanging out with our fellow riff lovers in Monster Truck again- even if it has to be virtually for now! Writing a song with another band while live-streaming the entire process to the world is something neither group has ever done- so we are excited to see what happens and where it will go! It’s time to unleash the Cherry Truck Band!”

Talking about it Harvey of Monster Truck said; “We couldn’t be more excited for BSC to pop our collaboration Cherry! Haha! Can’t wait to write some serious rock n roll and come out the other side with a banger. People will be singing this tune for the rest of their lives.”

The web series will be on both bands Facebook pages every Wednesday at 3 pm Central Time (9 pm BST/10 pm CET) for fans to view.”

Monster Truck Premiere “Evolution” Music Video

Monster Truck have premiered a new video for their new song “Evolution.” This track is from the band’s new album “True Rockers,” which will be released on September 14. Jon Harvey told Loudwire the following:

“‘Evolution’ was a real shift in a different direction. It was very eye-opening in many different ways for us. We wanted to keep the video looking like the image that we built rather than have another curveball. I think the juxtaposition feels more natural than we expected, and the end product speaks for itself.”
