Ripple Music, the home of authentic, retro rock and metal, signed Northern Ireland’s most explosive rock n’ roll importafter hearing how the band blew away the crowds at 2011’s Download Festival where they also made fast friends with Def Leppard’s, Joe Elliot, Thin Lizzy’s Ricky Warwick and none other than Dee Snider.
Since then, there’s been no looking back for Trucker Diablo or Ripple Music as the band’s debut The Devil Rhythm has been garnering widespread accolades and lead off single/video “Drink Beer, Destroy” has been getting steady play on BBC Radio 1, Kerrang Radio and Kerrang TV. The Devil Rhythm has been converting rock fans the world over with it’s cohesive, unified, high energy rock tracks, slick and polished indelivery, but served up raw and forceful. “Drink Beer, Destroy” has proven to be an instant classic that has fans raisingtheir fists and singing along to the anthemic chorus. And it doesn’t stop there. “Juggernaut” features a guest appearance by vocalist, Ricky Warwick, the acclaimed voice of The Almighty and now Thin Lizzy. “Stand Up And Fight” is another song from the album that sounds as though it should be played before an arena-sized stadium crowd. The song “Voodoo” is a blues-rock number with a good groove. “Big Truck” is yet another example that TRUCKER DIABLO can compete with the best when it comes to hard rock, combining a massive chorus with chugging guitars.
And in case you haven’t had the opportunity to experience the Big Truck live, Trucker Diablo has announced a series of UK dates centered around Hammerfest that will see the band heading from Ireland over to England and beyond. Tour dates are below.
