Normally Trucker Diablo get a chance to get out on the road and play live for their fans, but this year they clearly cannot, so they have decided to put together a Christmas cracker of a video for their brand new Christmas single “We’re Gonna Rock This Christmas”. In the true spirit of the festive season following fellow rockers like Status Quo, The Darkness, and Slade; Trucker Diablo releases a tune celebrating all that is great about Christmas. It offers a smattering of Sleighbells to get you in the mood and a chorus of “We’re Gonna Rock This Christmas all night Long” that will drill into your head from the first listen. Along with a thrilling gift of a fantastic guitar solo that tops off the track, like a star on a Christmas tree. Why not ditch the same old Christmas classics this yule and give this new track a spin!!

Their album ‘Tail End Of A Hurricane’ was released earlier this year. It takes a few diversions on the main road that the Big Truck normally drives on, the almost punk attitude and feel to ‘Insects’ with its social commentary on how we’re all just worker insects feeding everything to the corporate machine for them to steal our being. The closing track “Bury The Ocean” was the last song written for the album, and its crushing guitar building to an epic ending is a fitting reminder that while times are tough now, we will get out the other side of this situation!

The one thing you do expect from Trucker is big riffs; big choruses and big performances, and this album doesn’t disappoint. From the sing-along Rock Kids of the 80s; the energy of Insects, the short sharp punch of ‘Slow Dance’ or the laid back tale ‘Woodstock to Vietnam‘ where two friends in the hippy movement of the 60s choose different pathways for their life; you’ll know you’ve opened your front door to see the Big Truck parked up outside, engine running; exhaust fumes pumping out the pipe, door laying open invitingly…
