Monster Truck have just released their popular cover of the Bay City Rollers’ “Saturday Night”. The track, which first aired last season during the opening montage for Hockey Night in Canada, is now available to purchase and stream via iTunes and is available via all streaming services HERE.
Of the cover track, lead vocalist and bassist Jon Harvey had this to say, “We never thought we’d cover a Bay City Rollers song, but for Hockey Night In Canada we’d cover Mozart! We are so excited to have been given such a great opportunity”.
“Everyone always talks about the virtues of being pulled out of your comfort zone. It’s something you don’t often impose on yourself,” says Monster Truck’s guitarist Jeremy Widerman. “So, when we were commissioned to record a cover of a Bay City Rollers Song for Hockey Night in Canada we knew we had our work cut out for us. It ended up not only providing many inspiring creative moments, but it also introduced us to Dan Weller. We got along so well and we were so happy with the final product, that we got him to produce our upcoming full length.”
Fans will be happy to know that the cover track will continue to kick off HNIC’s coverage every Saturday night for the 2016/2017 season, and will be featured as the theme for Hockey Central’s Saturday pre-game which airs at 6:30pm ET as part of Hockey Night in Canada.
“’Saturday Night’ was the perfect way to get Hockey Night in Canada rolling,” comments Rob Corte, VP, Sportsnet and NHL Production. “Monster Truck’s version took the original to another level and we are thrilled that it will kick off our coverage every Saturday night this season.”
Monster Truck is Jon Harvey (vocals & bass), Jeremy Widerman (guitar & vocals), Brandon Bliss (organ & vocals) and Steve Kiely (drums & vocals).
