Conceived in 2003, THE REAL DEAL has since rocked stages across the North America numerous times and has had the chance to play with some incredible bands (BIGWIG, SET YOUR GOALS, BELVEDERE, ILL SCARLETT, A WILHELM SCREAM, PROTEST THE HERO, just to name a few). Theyâ€™ve played festivals like Ska Fest and the Warped Tour. Theyâ€™ve put out records. Theyâ€™ve put out videos. Theyâ€™ve been on the radio. Theyâ€™ve been on TV. Theyâ€™ve been broke. Theyâ€™ve been less broke. Theyâ€™ve always had a good time and they donâ€™t plan to stop anytime soonâ€¦
THE REAL DEALâ€™s second full-length effort, â€œHungover & Dead Soberâ€, continues to define their unique brand of hilarious party punk and ska. The album features 15 intense songs dealing with a variety of issues ranging from senseless violence in “Bombs Away!” and “The Beating” to the state of the music industry with “What Happened?!? Fuck!?!â€ in between countless party anthems. Sarcastic, serious and silly, THE REAL DEALâ€™s newest touches on just about everything a good punk record should. Catchy melodies, loud guitars, violent drums and all the energy punk rock has been lacking lately, â€œHungover, but Dead Soberâ€ is a must for your punk rock collection.
