New video from Trucker Diablo
“I remember when we wrote City. Simon and I were in my old rock shed jamming and reminiscing about the old days, growing up, all our favourite films and music. Simon showed me this riff he had, and I started jamming and when he played the chorus, the first lyric I sang is still the lyric today. It was like magic and we loved it. We pride ourselves on good songs no matter how heavy or light, the song is king and we are proud of how it turned out” : Tom’ Harte, Trucker Diablo
“What a tune! This will be on every rock compilation of the future. They can do slow just as brilliantly as they do chunky” :Peter K Mally – Comedian/Compere
“Trucker Diablo are finally returning with new music, the Irish rockers are about to retake the rock world by storm with the release of “Other Side of The City” in 2019” :Tony Ainscough – Radio Nova, Ireland
“Loving this, guys, a great summer radio track for sure! Fantastic sounds again from the big Truck!” :Keith Weir – The Quireboys
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!
Recorded late 2018 with long term producer Frankie McClay at Einstein Studios, and
featuring current bassist Jim McGurk, ‘Other Side of the City’ is released 26th April 2019
‘Devil Songs‘ 30 song double cd/digital package released May 2019.
