Local band Trucker Diablo are jingling all the way with their new Christmas single.

‘We’re Gonna Rock This Christmas’ is the stomping festive tune from the supergroup from Lurgan and Portadown.

Singer Tom Harte told the ‘MAIL’: “The video was recorded last weekend in the studio we always record in, Einstein Studios in Antrim.

“We recorded our last two records there more recently our new album Songs of Iron in May.

“Inspiration-wise I love all the Christmas songs.

“I really wansted to write a good catchy Christmas song that captures the spirit of Christmas and showcases who we are as a band.

“We got our jumpers at the local superstores.

“We had loads of fun doing the video and we are really pleased the way it came out.”

In less than a day the video got nearly 1,000 views on Youtube.

Tom added: “It’s currently going viral on Facebook and Twitter and we got the news that a lot of major radio stations want to take on the single and give it some airplay which is great for us.

“It’s good to see so many people enjoying the song and I am glad a piece of music we have written has inspired so much Christmas spirit.”

The song is available to purchase via the bandcamp website on http://truckerdiablo.bandcamp.com

Set to benefit from sales of the Christmas single is the Royal Victoria Hospital for Sick Children.
