There’s something comforting about a band name that delivers exactly what you expect to hear. Born in 2009 from the ashes of various Canadian Indie bands, Monster Truck began as a sonic affront to the very industry its members were bred from. After feeling more like cogs in the music industry machine, Jon Harvey (bass & lead vocals), Jeremy Widerman (guitar & vocals), Brandon Bliss (organ & vocals) and Steve Kiely (drums & vocals) broke free to forge their own path, answering only to themselves. “It was admittedly a bit selfish from the get-go as we only were looking to please ourselves,” laughs Widerman.

The constant show regiment and recording process is sharpening the band’s delivery and there’s no doubt that anyone still interested in original and authentic rock music will be compelled to pay attention. Monster Truck will continue doing what they do best, steamrolling from town to town leaving legions of fans in their wake.

Described as The White Stripes body slammed by Queens Of The Stone Age, The Standstills have broadening their horizon and defining their craft with their new unreleased full length album “Badlands”. “It’s guitar driven, outlaw rock and roll” lead singer and guitarist Jonny Fox declares. Drummer and singer Renee Couture defines the record as “If wild west Clint Eastwood and Belle Starr had a rock and roll baby”. The Canadian rock duo is already off to a great start with their latest singles including “Wild” which reached #7 on Active Rock radio. And was the fastest charting top ten in eOne Canada history. The track is a hypnotic high-powered number with a magnetic and gritty guitar lick, featuring Couture’s mountainous drums all topped with Fox’s dynamic and vigorous vocal. The Standstills have paired these elements seductively with psychedelic imagery and video’s, putting this duo in the sights of trend setters and rockers alike.
