The Skinny: Rock n’ roll fans around the globe can head below to check out Monster Truck’s brand new track, “Things Get Better”! The bluesy, soulful song is taken from the band’s forthcoming sophomore album Sittin’ Heavy, which is set for release on February 19th on Dine Alone Records in North America, Australia and New Zealand and via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group in Europe.

Of “Things Get Better” Monster Truck’s frontman/bassist Jon Harvey commented, “The song is about the current state of the world.” Guitarist Jeremy Widerman added, “It’s a message of hope in the face of real adversity that seems to be around every corner these days. Not just a reminder to take nothing for granted but also to be aware that through struggle and perseverance comes triumph.”

In support of their new record, Monster Truck will be embarking on a Canadian headlining tour this winter. The tour which kicks off at Sugar Nightclub in Victoria on February 23, features stops in 11 Canadian cities.
