The first single from their debut album, ‘Juggernaut’, was released on Monday, and was unstoppable in its surge to the top of the rock download list.

The single, featuring rock icon Ricky Warwick, is the first to be lifted off the band’s debut album, ‘The Devil Rhythm’.

Trucker Diablo began in early 2008 as four friends coming together collectively as a group to play music they loved and that defined them as individuals.

This soon became an unstoppable machine through the local support of fans and the internet. Quickly they were hailed as a Northern Ireland super group due to the band members' successful past.

Simon Haddock had been a previous member of Joy Rider who enjoyed a highly successful career signing to A&M Records in the late 90s, touring internationally and appearing on Top of the Pops.

Tom Harte and Terry Crawford were members of acclaimed Hard Rock outfit Tilted. They enjoyed a successful career touring the US, UK and Canada and received praise from acclaimed LA producer Kim Foley.

Present Day Trucker Diablo have been playing the local circuit supporting Ricky Warwick and Adam Bomb on their recent UK tours.
