The folks at the 2011 Download Festival felt it. Fans who saw them opening for Black Stone Cherry felt it. The lucky masses who’ll be at Hammerfest 2012 are about to feel it. Soon everyone will know the band that Def Leppard‘s Joe Elliot has called “absolutely awesome stuff!”
Ripple Music, the home of authentic, retro rock and metal, is proud to announce the signing of Northern Ireland’s most explosive rock n’ roll import,Trucker Diablo! After blowing away the crowds from the stages of 2011’s Download Festival, this Irish four-piece grabbed the attention of the U.S. rock label Ripple Music and immediately began working on plans to get the music heard around the world. “The Devil Rhythm” is a 40-plus minute thrill ride of rock n’ roll album that will have every head banging to the heavy groove and rocking to its muscular riffs and adrenaline.
Having formed in 2008, Trucker Diablo quickly garnered the adoration of some of rock n’ roll’s biggest names, including Joe Elliott (Def Leppard), Cormac Neeson (The Answer), Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), and Ricky Warwick (Thin Lizzy, The Almighty), who also makes a guest appearance on the Trucker track “Juggernaut”.
