Project Blues: Saturday Suffering Fools is the tenth studio album by Diesel released on 20 July 2009.[1][2] The album reached a peak of #50 on the ARIA Charts in August 2009. Diesel toured the album nationally throughout October and November 2009 with the "Hits and Blues Tour".[3]

Diesel said, "The album is like an encyclopaedia of what blues is to me. Having done the harmonica and guitar thing, I thought about the whole thing with horns." Diesel worked with Bernie Bremond, his father Hank and brothers Mike & Brian Lizotte on horns, and with drummer Lee Moloney and bassist Richie Vez.[4] The album contains five original tracks.
