TRUCKER DIABLO Build on Epic Year as One of the Breakout Artists of 2012; Opening for Foo Fighters and Storming the Stage at Hard Rock Hell Before Recording New Album

What a year it's been for the fast-rising hard rock band from Northern Ireland, Trucker Diablo. And it just keeps on getting bigger!

Trucker Diablo has been riding an intense wave of popularity since signing to Ripple Music, the California-based hard rock label late last year. Their Ripple debut album, The Devil Rhythm, garnered widespread accolades around the world, and lead-off single "Drink Beer, Destory" earned steady play on BBC Radio 1, Kerrang Radio, and Kerrang TV. The Devil Rhythm has converted rock fans world-wide, with its high energy tracks and earned Trucker the tag as one of the biggest breakout bands of 2012.

But the good news doesn't stop there. With a growing reputation as a killer live band, and having blown away the crowds opening for Tygers of Pan Tang at the S.O.S Festival, Trucker Diablo has been tapped to open the upcoming Tennants Vital in support of the Foo Fighters and Black Keys.

After an exhaustive competition, Trucker Diablo was one of only two local bands asked to share the stage with the international headliners. All reports are that they boys blew the judges away with their high-octane performances of "Drink Beer, Destroy" and "Voodoo." Watch for the Big Truck to take the stage, Tuesday August 21st, where they will be roadtesting new material from the upcoming, tentatively titled second album, Songs of Iron. Already, crowds at the SOS Festival, Billing Bike Fest and Trucker's 2 headline shows in Birmingham and Oxfordshire were treated to a debut of new tracks including "Drive"," The Rebel", "Maybe You're The One" and" When's It Gonna Rain?" and the reaction to the new material has been amazing!

Trucker will be celebrating the Tennants Vital gig by doing an acoustic session on BBC Radio the night before Vital, sitting in as the house band on the Across The Line show. Then expect more of those songs to be busted out live when Trucker Diablo takes a break from recording Songs of Iron to storm the stage at Hard Rock Hell, Sunday December 3rd, sharing the spotlight with Buckcherry, Stray, Soil, and Pig Iron amongst others.

Don't miss your chance to catch the Big Truck as it rolls through your town.
The Devil Rhythm is now available at the Ripple Music Store and world-wide through Clearspot International in Europe, Code 7 Distribution in the UK, and Nail Distribution in North America. And be sure to check out the hilarious, viral hit video for "Voodoo."
