TRUCKER DIABLO began in early 2008 as four friends coming together collectively as a group to play music they loved and that defined them as individuals. The band soon became an unstoppable machine through the local support of fans, a DIY, grass roots, word of mouth movement across the internet, and the persistent work ethic that is forcing the world to make notice.
Present Day TRUCKER DIABLO have self-released their debut album “The Devil Rhythm”, which features a guest appearance from fellow Northern Irish rocker and new Thin Lizzy frontman, Ricky Warwick. In addition to the endorsement from Ricky Warwick, the band has also received accolades from Joe Elliot (Def Leppard) and Cormac Neeson (The Answer). In the summer of 2011 the band were hand-picked by the Download festival promoters and performed on the Pepsi max stage in front of a 6,000 strong crowd while Dee Snider from Legendary rock band Twisted Sister watched from the side and stayed for the whole set.
With tracks from the album being played on America, Canadian, Australian, and British radio stations; including a live studio session on BBC Radio One, and a bevy of positive world-wide press culminating with appearances on the cover-mount CD’s for Classic Rock and Metal. More recently the band’s first American single has been included on the Rock Band that you can download and play on your XBOX. The song will be available to download from Christmas.
After a very successful 2011 Trucker Diablo were picked up by California based record label Ripple. The Devil Rhythm will be re-released through Ripple Music towards the end of 2011, with the new edition of the album featuring a previously unreleased track, as well as two songs recorded live at the 2011 Download Festival. Ending 2011 on a high the Trucker boys were selected to support Black Stone Cherry on the Irish leg of their European tour
Look for the Truckers on the road and at festivals in the UK, as well as the U.S in 2012.
