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 Joyrider who enjoyed a highly successful career signing to A&M Records in the late 90’s, touring internationally and appearing on the legendary Top of the Pops with their single “Rush Hour” which reached 22 in the UK charts.
Tom Harte and Terry Crawford were members of acclaimed Hard Rock outfit TILTED who signed to Shattered records in the late 90’s . They enjoyed a successful career touring the US, UK and Canada and received praise from acclaimed L.A producer Kim Foley.
Present Day TRUCKER DIABLO have been playing the local circuit supporting Ricky Warwick and Adam Bomb on their recent UK tours and have released their debut album “The Devil Rhythm” with a guest appearance from Northern Irish Rock Star and New Thin Lizzy frontman Ricky Warwick from “The Almighty” fame. The band also gained some recent praise in the form of Joe Elliot (Singer with Def Leppard). Tracks from the album are currently being played on America, Canadian and Australian radio stations.
