Hard rockers MONSTER TRUCK are proud to premiere their brand new music video for "For The People", a politically empowering yet non-partisan track from their recent album, Sittin' Heavy. Check out the animated companion video for the classic roots rock-inspired song advocating power to the people on KNAC.COM right HERE. Of the "For The People" video, MONSTER TRUCK lead singer/bassist Jon Harvey commented, "We wanted the video to capture a certain vibe. The song was intended to be a pseudo-protest and very roots rock and the 70s animation seem to speak to that. Besides nothing is cooler than hand-drawn animation. The illustrators and animators executed it perfectly." The "For The Pepole" video is illustrated by Brett Lamb, Leslie Supnet and Eric Kim and is animated by David Mayzis, Les Solis and Greg Zajac. The director is Kyle Griblin.

MONSTER TRUCK have just wrapped up a massive world tour in support of Sittin' Heavy. MONSTER TRUCK toured the United States earlier this year, with dates that included major rock festivals Welcome To Rockville, Carolina Rebellion, Northern Invasion and Rock On The Range as well as a combination of headline shows and support dates with ROB ZOMBIE, VOLBEAT and SHINEDOWN. The band will return to the United States early next year and is already confirmed to tour their native Canada supporting BILLY TALENT beginning in February, 2017 and then to headline the United Kingdom in late March, 2017. Please see below for dates.

"Don't Tell Me How To Live", the first single from MONSTER TRUCK's Sittin' Heavy, peaked in the Top 25 at Active Rock radio and was seated there comfortably for months. The epic video for the single made its exclusive worldwide premiere via Ultimate Classic Rock. In the band's native Canada, "Don't Tell Me How To Live" catapulted into the Top 5 at Canadian Rock radio just three weeks in.

Hamilton, Ontario's MONSTER TRUCK has been championed by the likes of Slash, TWISTED SISTER's Dee Snider and ALICE IN CHAINS' Mike Inez and has toured extensively in their native Canada, the U.S., Europe and the UK, touring alongside such massive acts as ALICE IN CHAINS, SLASH, NICKELBACK, DEEP PURPLE, ZZ TOP, BUCKCHERRY, ALTER BRIDGE, KID ROCK. MONSTER TRUCK is Jon Harvey (vocals, bass), Jeremy Widerman (guitars, vocals), Brandon Bliss (organ, vocals) and Steve Kiely (drums, vocals).
