Irish rockers Trucker Diablo have released a new single, I Am Still Alive, ahead of the release of a new album, entitled Tail End of a Hurricane, on May 7th. You can watch the lyric video for the new track below!
A true stadium rocker, written just before the pandemic the song is about survival. The suns out, turn it up, share with friends and groups, buy the album… Drink Many Beers, Destroy!
This album 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. Closing track Bury The Ocean was the last song written for the album, and its crushing guitar and build to an epic ending is a sitting 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 sixties 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…
