Monster Truck have released a video for their new single Golden Woman, taken from their forthcoming new album.
“The idea for “Golden Woman” came one afternoon as I was fiddling around on a kid’s guitar my father had bought my son. He got it at some garage sale and thought it perfect for little hands. I ended up picking it up, putting the strap over my head, and walking around with it all afternoon playing the main riff, and slowly crafting an arrangement. Jer and I then fine-tuned the song, and voila! Inspiration comes from anywhere and everywhere,” says bassist/lead singer Jon Harvey. “The lyrics were born of my own personal experience with my partner, Simara. She saved me during a very rough time, and I am forever grateful for her, and the mystical revelations that only love can bring. Her hair colour is naturally blonde, so the title of the song is, like all Monster Truck songs, very literal,” he adds.
The band will be performing on the main stage at Download Festival this weekend and to give more fans chance to see them live they have announced a run of UK headline dates for later this year. Support across the tour will come from Those Damn Crows.
