Black Stone Cherry + Monster Truck = The Cherry Truck Band!

Back in mid-May, as the COVID-19 pandemic was spreading throughout the world and as many of us  were deep in lockdown, Kentucky arena rockers Black Stone Cherry and Canadian hard-rocking juggernauts  Monster Truck decided that distance wasn’t going to stop them from creating something beautiful for a good  cause.
 

Following Black Stone Cherry’s YouTube series the Cherry Chats, the two bands joined forces over a series of  live Zoom video calls to write a song from scratch, allowing fans unprecedented access to watch as the creativity  unfold from the safety of their homes. Thus, The Cherry Truck Band was born, and out of those sessions came a  special charity single ‘Love Become Law.’
 

All proceeds from this single will be split between two charities, chosen by the bands themselves – Black Stone  Cherry will be donating their proceeds to The Boys and Girls Club of America and Monster Truck to Black Lives  Matter. You can purchase the song here 

 

Talking about how the song came together; Black Stone Cherry said; “The idea of The Cherry Truck Band can honestly  be credited to the pandemic that our world is in. We saw tour after tour being cancelled and so many bands were  turning to live streaming performances online. We put our heads together with our great friends in Monster Truck and  decided to do something we hadn’t seen any other bands do to help pass the time while still entertaining fans. That idea  was to write a song, LIVE to the world and divide it up into segments to show our fans the process of writing and creating.  We had never done this with another full band before, let alone do it while we’re live streaming. It was incredibly exciting  and fun and we are so proud of the song and more importantly, it's meaning! This song is about uniting, being and living  as one, and most importantly, loving each and every person that walks this planet. We hope you enjoy it as much as we  did creating it for you!”
 
Adding Monster Truck frontman/bassist Jon ‘Marv’ Harvey continues; “The Cherry Truck Band started with a bunch of friends  getting together over long distances to create something memorable, meaningful and joyous. Over the five weekly episodes,  our entire world basically turned upside down. The people were rising up. The people were tired of being oppressed. The people  were tired of suffering for doing nothing wrong. The people were ready to force change. This is our anthem in solidarity to those  fighting for basic rights. This is our voices saying, ‘we love you, we hear you, we respect and love you’. Black lives matter. Without  the impact of black culture, there would be no modern music, period. Respect, protect and celebrate diversity. Our world depends  on it”.
 
Monster Truck will be donating to Black Lives Matter Foundation, Inc is a global organization in the US, UK, and Canada, whose
mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state
and vigilantes. By combating and countering acts of violence, creating space for Black imagination and innovation, and centring
Black joy, we are winning immediate improvements in our lives. You can see more on them here: https://blacklivesmatter.com/

Talking about donating to The Boys and Girls Club of America, Black Stone Cherry explain; “The Boys and Girls Club is an organization we feel very strongly about because they are ensuring young people that success is within reach no matter who they are, where they come from, race, etc.. We love that the Boys and Girls Club is helping teach responsibility, education, and instilling a hard work ethic at a young age so that these kids can grow up and be proud of themselves and what they have accomplished! We have donated to our  community club for several years and we are honoured to help out by donating the Boys and Girls Club of America where we know in  our hearts they are helping to make a difference in our young generation.” You can read more info on the charity here: https://www.bgca.org/
