Trucker Diablo has been riding an massive wave of popularity since signing to Ripple Music, the California-based hard rock label last year. After impressive gigs opening for The Foo Fighters at Tennents Vital and the Tygers of Pan Tang, the Big Truck just received the thrill of their collective lifetime: The opportunity to open for Irish rock legends, Thin Lizzy on Lizzy's Farewell Tour!
Thin Lizzy have announced a farewell tour with a Belfast date for their loyal fans in the relatively intimate setting of The Limelight 1 on Wednesday 12th December. After a very successful 2 year run with the current line up, Thin Lizzy have made a decision to not release a new album under the Thin Lizzy name. Ricky Warwick said ‘Without a new album to gain new press and keep the momentum we have built up over the past two years, we are worried the Thin Lizzy brand and all it stands for will diminish to a point we would never want to see. Therefore our regular touring as Thin Lizzy will cease at the end of this year after our European tour.’
Information about the gig, the chance to see Thin Lizzy live and Trucker Diablo opening for them, can be found here.
Trucker Diablo's debut album, The Devil Rhythm won widespread accolades around the world, busting out singles "Drink Beer, Destroy," and "Voodoo" that earned steady play on BBC 1 Radio, Kerrang Radio, and Kerrang TV. The Devil Rhythm has converted rock fans world wide with it's high energy, no holds-barred rock n roll, and earned Trucker Diablo the tag as one of the biggest breakout bands of 2012.
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."
