Monster Truck

Monster Truck's brand of hard rock made the Canadian group a chart-topping act in 2013, when the single "Sweet Mountain River" reached Number 1 on the Canadian Rock chart. Formed in Hamilton, Ontario, in 2009, the band originally featured vocalist/bassist Jon Harvey, guitarist Jeremy Widerman, keyboardist Brandon Bliss, and drummer Steve Kiely. Monster Truck debuted with a self-titled EP in 2010, then cracked the Top 10 in Canada for the first time with 2011's "Seven Seas Blues," which appeared on The Brown EP. "Righteous Smoke," another track from the release, reached Number 11 on the Canadian Rock chart one year later, and Monster Truck returned in 2013 with a full-length debut album, Furiosity. The record reached Number 13 on the Canadian Albums Chart and produced three popular singles — the chart-topping "Sweet Mountain River", the Number 2 hit "The Lion," and the Number 7 hit "Old Train" — that all cracked the Top 10 on the Canadian rock chart. The sophomore record Sittin' Heavy was released in 2016 and reached Number 6 in the band's homeland; it also marked an international breakthrough for Monster Truck, reaching Number 42 in Austria, Number 52 in Germany, and Number 64 in Switzerland. "Don't Tell Me How to Live," a Top 10 hit in Canada, also received heavy airplay in America, where the song peaked at Number 27 on the US Mainstream Rock Singles chart. Two years later, the band released True Rockers, which spawned another Top 20 single in Canada. "Golden Woman and "Get My Things and Go" followed in 2022, with both singles whipping up attention for the band's fourth full-length album.
