Tumbleweed Dealer are a Canadian post-stoner band from Montreal, Quebec. Forming initially as a solo project the band would evolve into a duo and later a trio. The band describes their music as "instrumental stoner/desert rock with a western soundtrack feel." To date the band has three studio albums released with a fourth in the works.


Tumbleweed Dealer started initially as a solo project of guitarist Seb Painchaud, whom also played with the brutal death metal band known as The Last Felony. Painchaud recorded bass and guitars and released the EP Death Rides Southwards circa 5 November 2012. A drummer would be obtained in Carl Borman for the eponymous Tumbleweed Dealer, released 28 April 2013. Borman would leave the band to concentrate on Dopethrone and a new drummer would be obtained in Jean-Francois Richard (Ion Dissonance) along with a bassist in Miguel Valade (I.D., Negativa).[1] This trio would re-record the song "Resurrected Once Again", leading up to the release of their second album Western Horror on 23 June 2014.

Tumbleweed Dealer's first live shows would follow the next year, beginning with a show in Montreal on 7 February 2015[2] and following with an appearance at Psycho California in the United States.[3] More occasional gigs would follow (Including a gig supporting Truckfighters) along with the band's third album, TDIII - Tokes, Hatred & Caffeine, on 21 November 2016.

Currently work has begun on a fourth album as the band remains active as of 2020.
