New Jersey based alternative rock band Working Class Hussys is proud to announce the release of Diesel Tunes, their third full length album. The songs on Diesel Tunes explore the common thoughts and experiences from professional truck drivers longing for home while living life on the open road, to the adventures of free-spirits who left their homes to see the U.S.A.
Written by prolific songwriter and lead singer Ian Patrick Gentles, the songs on Diesel Tunes cover a wide emotional and musical spectrum. The album displays the unique vision of a band who has taken their musical influences (alternative rock, classic 70’s and southern rock) and created a sound all their own. Diesel Tunes will be available on Amazon.com and iTunes on July 18, 2014.
The songs on Diesel Tunes are also inspired by Ian’s 12 years as a truck driver, “Throughout my experiences and trials driving a truck, the songwriting kept me company during the hundreds of miles and lonely 12 hour days. I was constantly getting melodies in my head while driving and I would have to write them down on the nearest piece of paper and try to decipher chicken-scratch later on when I got home.”
The album features the radio friendly tune “Goin’ For A Ride,” a song about freedom of the open road for someone who wanted to leave their one horse town behind. “To Tennessee” is a rootsy song with a southern rock edge about a trucker who misses his home & family. Everything he sees on the road reminds him of home.

Working Class Hussys is an eight member ensemble whose current vision is to bring the sound of three part vocal harmonies together with Ian’s strong lead vocal in a rock band setting. Two dueling lead guitars decorate the sound with recognizably rock emphasis. All that combined with a strong rhythm section give the band a unique and powerful “wall of sound.” The band features Ian Patrick Gentles (lead singer, acoustic rhythm guitar), Anthony Mann (drums), Brian Casale (electric bass), Mike McClellan (lead guitar), Gregory Winka (lead guitar) and vocalists Pattie Lynn, Amanda During and Ann Shi.
Ian Patrick Gentles is a singer/songwriter who after fronting several bands across the country, has settled down in central New Jersey. He built a home studio and recorded several hundred original songs. This is where he created the idea of Working Class Hussys and how he would bring his music and vision to the world. His songwriting takes influences from many genres ranging from rock, blues, folk, country, pop and even Broadway show tunes. Working Class Hussys have played festivals and venues in New York City, Philadelphia and New Jersey. Their songs have been played on FM and worldwide internet radio, including their track “Goin’ For A Ride” from Diesel Tunes.
