Diesel – Ride

2022 marks the 30th anniversary of Diesel’s first solo record, Hepfidelity. Featuring the hit singles ‘Tip Of My Tongue’, ‘Man Alive’ and more, the record was a huge success on release – it reached #1 on the ARIA charts and stayed there for 4 weeks, and won the ARIA Award for Album Of The Year.

To celebrate the momentous anniversary, Diesel has uncovered 10 unreleased tracks from the era that were recorded around the world. This transforms the original 11-track record into a double album, which will be pressed in full on vinyl for the first time ever.

Fans can stream the new track ‘Ride’ now and pre-order the full double-album on vinyl.

Born in Fall River Massachusetts, the youngest of seven children from a saxophone-playing tech technician father and a mother in nursing, Mark Lizotte aka DIESEL grew up in Australia and in the U.S.

He formed the band ‘Johnny Diesel & The Injectors’ in 1986 from remnants of a previous band before embarking on a solo career in 1991. Diesel recently celebrated 30 years “off the bus” landing in Sydney in 1987 after a 3-day bus journey across Australia, launching into 9 shows per week – and the rest, as they say, is history.

With over thirty-five singles, multiple number 1 albums, 6 ARIA awards and a million records sold, DIESEL is a journeyman of music. With blues music in his DNA, an influence largely from his father’s record collection, DIESEL has blended styles to come up with a truly unique sound, punctuated with his distinct guitar playing and vocals.
