The Real Deal

The Real Deal



Hometown: Montreal, QC (Canada)


Once in a while, a band comes along and changes the face of music. The Real Deal is indisputably NOT one of these bands‚?¶Hot damn they are FUN to be around though!

Their sophomore Stomp Records release entitled Fun is a fitting name for the 12 tracks of what the band has come to brand as Party Punk. WARNING: exposure to ‚??FUN‚?Ě may induce unexplainable binge drinking and spontaneous mosh pits.

Closing in on 400 shows across North America (since 2004), 351 hangovers (since 2008) and no gold records (to date or in the foreseeable future), The Real Deal have rocked stages with the likes of Less Than Jake, The Slackers, Millencolin, Protest The Hero, Reel Big Fish, The Planet Smashers, Gob, Set Your Goals and so many more.
