The New Deal performed in its native Toronto this past July and has decided to release the performance for posterity. LIVE: TORONTO 7.16.2009 will be released the second week of December and anyone who pre-orders before December 7 will receive a copy autographed by a randomly-selected member of the band. The New Deal will celebrate the disc with a return to the Mod Club on December 17. Then, looking ahead to 2009 the trio has confirmed an eight date U.S. tour, with one leg in the Northeast with Big Gigantic and one in the Midwest with DJ Rekha opening the nights.
