TRUCKER DIABLO release new single ‘Other Side Of The City’ on 26th April.
Trucker Diablo closed 2018 playing Winter Storm Festival and earned the tag of “most fun and rockin’ band of the weekend!”. Quietly tinkering with the Big Truck over the winter period, and regaining control over previously label owned albums, the band dug some song ideas out of the archives, and from those sessions came the idea to celebrate 10 years of Trucker Diablo by re-releasing the first two albums in a special package, with bonus tracks and unreleased songs.
The new package became the 30-song laden ‘Devil Songs‘, the combination of The Devil Rhythm and Songs of Iron, and will be released in May 2019. The lead single ‘Other Side of the City‘ is one of the unreleased tunes from that period and combines everything Trucker became known for since that initial debut album, big riffs, sing along choruses and that feeling we’re in it together![youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NaRkrbnHiS4&w=560&h=315]

Here’s what the press said:
“Trucker Diablo’s debut embraces beer, girls and enough testosterone to submerge a small country. Sleazy blues rawk and distorted power chords are down and very dirty – check out Thin Lizzy frontman Ricky Warwick’s contribution to Juggernaut – with particularly appealing openings and solos in Dirty Love and the nicely Texas-y Voodoo”
Classic Rock Magazine reviewing The Devil Rhythm
“With a truly formidable reputation for explosive live shows and beer-fuelled chaos, Trucker Diablo are Northern Ireland’s most exciting new band. This album is their first big chance to grab the world by the knackers. While their 2010 debut was equal parts razor-sharp bombast and featherweight filler, Songs of Iron is a brash and bellicose joy from start to finish. The album thrums and crackles with electrifying energy and verve, veering from the singalong exuberance of Red Light On and The Rebel to the sweetly soulful pathos of ballad Maybe You’re The One”
