The Cherry Truck Band web series premieres tonight (13 May) at 9pm BST on both the Black Stone Cherry and Monster Trucks Facebook Pages and it promises to be a unique experience indeed.

Live and up close you can watch Black Stone Cherry and Monster Truck collaborate on writing a song together, seeing at first hand how the creative process works.

The idea emerged from Black Stone Cherry’s ‘Cherry Chat’ episode with Monster Truck’s Jon ‘Marv’ Harvey just over a week ago.

The idea blossomed from their conversation together with the Kentucky brothers telling us: We’re so happy to be hanging out with our fellow riff lovers in Monster Truck again- even if it has to be virtually for now!

“Writing a song with another band while live-streaming the entire process to the world is something neither group has ever done. So we are excited to see what happens and where it will go!

“It’s time to unleash the Cherry Truck Band!”

Harvey, of Monster Truck, told MetalTalk “We couldn’t be more excited for BSC to pop our collaboration Cherry! Haha! Can’t wait to write some serious rock n roll and come out the other side with a banger. People will be singing this tune for the rest of their lives.”

The virtual happy hour ‘Cherry Chats’ see the guys speak to different bands on different topics.

Chris, Ben, Jon, and John-Fred jumped on to a video call with their buddies Halestorm in Episode One where they talked about how they are writing songs in quarantine, tour dreams, and pranks.

In Episode Two, they caught up with Theory of a Deadman, where they shot the breeze on how they met, memories and how they’re coping with life in general.

In Episode Three, Monster Truck frontman, Jon ‘Marv’ Harvey joined them and the collaboration idea was born.

If you ever wondered what bands talk about or what it’s like when bands hang out after the show, there’s a glimpse into those conversations with Alter Bridge in Episode Four.
