Days Like These is the ninth studio album by Diesel released in August 2008.[2] The album reached a peak of #17 on the ARIA Charts in September 2008.

The album was recorded in 12 days, whereby Diesel recorded 17 tracks. "There were some overdubs done later but basically the tracks were done really quickly. It was probably the fastest writing process for me ever."[3] Diesel toured the album around Australia from October to December 2008.“It was just the three of us,” says Diesel. “Myself, Richie Vez on bass and Lee Moloney on drums. It`s a new spin on old ground.” [4]


Phil Bennett of Nova Magazine said the album is "wonderful". saying "With minimal assistance - a drummer, a bassist and himself - Diesel has come up with another underrated, understated winner."[5]
