BBC Gig of the Week: Trucker Diablo!

Once again, our GOTW goes right up to 11. A noisy bill of St. Hellfire, Novice, Audio Illusion and Forth Exit is enough to dispose of the January blues with an injection of solid riffola, and that's before you get to headliners Trucker Diablo.

Just like The Answer (who are big fans, by the way), TD have made early inroads to conquering the states, their album having been picked up and released by Californian based label Ripple Music. Also like the Answer, they have some pretty hefty names amongst their fan base - Joe Elliot (Def Leppard), Ricky Warwick (Thin Lizzy) and Dee Snider (Twister Sister), for a start. Fancy joining those names? If so, Saturday night's show at Ma Nelson's is the place to be!

Over to Tom Harte, frontman with Trucker Diablo:

"2012 so far looks to be an excellent year with us playing Hammerfest in Wales and supporting Skindred, both in March. We've a bunch of shows set up in the UK this year so it’s great to get a run out close to home before we head away. This will be our Belfast album launch, so come along and have a good night. Its our party and you're all invited!'
