Toronto’s live-electro pioneers the New Deal kick-off their largest, most ambitious tour in years with dates stretching from Colorado to North Carolina and bills shared with Toubab Krewe, King Britt, Brothers Past and more (details below). As always, tND’s concerts will feature inspired instrumental improvisations and driving beats, but new for this tour, the band will introduce a brand new keyboard setup, implemented to fortify the tND sound.
Touring in support of their latest release, Live: Toronto 7.16.2009 (SCI Fidelity Records) is a perfect snap-shot of the band onstage doing what they do best. With over 800 shows and ten albums released, Jamie Shields (keyboards), Darren Shearer (drums/beatbox) and Dan Kurtz (bass) have established themselves as leaders and innovators in the live electronic world, spawning countless bands, garnering numerous awards and selling out venues around the world. With a massive U.S. tour set for 2010, they prove the best is still ahead.
