Trucker Diablo has been riding an massive wave of popularity since signing to Ripple Music, the California-based hard rock label last year. After impressive gigs at the S.O. S. Festival and opening for Tygers of Pan Tang, the Big Truck stormed the stage at Tennents Vital with all guns blazing. Thrilled to be playing with the Foo Fighters, Trucker stomped the pedal to the metal, ripping through heart-stopping versions of their hits “Drink Beer, Destroy” and “Voodoo” before treating the rocking crowd to a debut, live rendition of their newest track, “When’s it Gonna Rain.” As if in response, the gods opened up the skies and a timely deluge rained down upon the crowd who jammed the stage, rocking with the band, refusing to take cover.
Media response to Trucker’s performance was overwhelming!
Later, Trucker Diablo appeared Live at the BBC, breaking out an acoustic version of the new, soon-to-be single. Recorded for a podcast -available here– Rigsy, the host was so taken with the band that he was quoted as saying, “When we booked the session, we weren’t sure how or if it would work acoustically, but if you have a great vocalist and a good hook to your song, then you can pull it off.”
With a few weeks off to continue recording their follow-up to their breakout debut album, Trucker Diablo will then head towards the mainland UK for the 4th time this year, opening for Terrorvision in Wolverhapmton, Leeds and London, before blasting out more shows opening for Swedish rockers Bonafide and storming the stage at Hard Rock Hell.
Trucker Diablo‘s debut album, The Devil Rhythm won widespread accolades around the world, busting out singles “Drink Beer, Destroy,” and “Voodoo” that earned steady play on BBC 1 Radio, Kerrang Radio, and Kerrang TV. The Devil Rhythm has converted rock fans world wide with it’s high energy, no holds-barred rock n roll, and earned Trucker Diablo the tag as one of the biggest breakout bands of 2012.
