BRUTAL BATTLE CUBA is proud to announce Montreal’s
DEALER as the 2016 winner for this year’s competition to perform on the Brutal Fest tour across Cuba from Aug 18-28. The national final took place on April 23rd in Montreal between city round winners …From The Deep (Ottawa), Exes For Eyes (Oshawa), 3 Days Dead (Oshawa) plus Dealer (Montreal) and was judged by Bart Frydrychowicz (Quo Vadis), Aaron Homma (Annihilator, Killitorous) and Alex Dupras (Plasma Rifle, Unhuman, Teramobile).
“What a first year we had! I cannot believe it is already over! DEALER, from Montreal, won this edition and will be representing Canada at the Brutal Summer Fest 2016 in Cuba! I can definitely say that all the bands were amazing, but DEALER came to this contest to win and there is no doubt about it. Huge presence on stage, trashy and aggressive “in your face” crossover between trash and hardcore. The Cubans are going to have a blast seeing these guys live! We are wrapping up this first year and already, we are working on the next one! Stay tuned, some announcements will come pretty soon!” comments BBC organizer Richard O’Neil.
DEALER will be introduced to every aspect of Cuban culture during their seven date tour over two weeks across the country with five to seven other international bands that includes crew members, drivers and one big bus on the road. As winning band, they will also be given the opportunity to be endorsed by companies such as InTune Guitar Picks and SoulTone Cymbals as well as a few other great prizes from BBC sponsors.
