7 Axes is an extended play (EP) (or Mini-LP) by Australian singer songwriter Diesel. It was released in February 2011 and sees Diesel paying homage to the artists and musicians that have inspired him. The EP follows a national tour which Diesel completed in November 2010. Diesel toured this EP in March and April 2011.


"Have Love, Will Travel" was released as the first and only single from the album on 4 January 2011.

Background and Recording

“It all stemmed from my live shows” Deisel said. He was doing shows in Sydney and Melbourne and performing covers; "Liberation Records heard about it and said, ‘you’ve got to make a record like that’. So we have!” Diesel and his band recorded 18 songs live in the studio in 8 days. 6 of these appear on the 7 Axes EP,


Rod Whitfield from Beat Magazine said the EP was "standard" saying "[Diesel] does [the covers] well, with both his voice and guitar playing predictably shining through. Does he make them his own? No. That's the problem."
