Tragedy - 'Memory' (from the Musical Cats)

Tragedy - 'I Am Woman' (album)
«Tragedy: All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees & Beyond!» Ένα τραγούδι των Bee Gees, το "Tragedy", από τον δίσκο "Spirits Having Flown" που κυκλοφόρησε το 1979 "βάφτισε" το συγκρότημα Tragedy, το οποίο μας έρχεται από την Νέα Υόρκη και αρέσκεται σε metal διασκευές disco (και όχι μόνο) τραγουδιών.

«You may openly love / hate disco or metal. You may secretly love / hate disco or metal. But, you will definitely love Tragedy and their bombastic mix of music, glitter and magic» μας λένε σχετικά. Στο πλαίσιο κυκλοφόρησαν στις αρχές της άνοιξης (3 Μαρτίου 2023) το νέο τους δισκογραφικό πόνημα υπό τον τίτλο "I Am Woman"!

Δελτίο τύπου: «The BBC. MTV. The Village Voice. The Boston Globe. The Washington Post... Tragedy - one of New York City’s most famous tribute bands and inventors of “disco metal” - had a glitter-encrusted grip on the entertainment world when they emerged into the scene in the early 2010’s.

Now, following up on their 2015 breakout viral music video for their cover of Grease’s “You’re The One That I Want” and 2017’s second viral hit, a cover of “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees, Tragedy are back with a brand new twist on 2023’s I Am Woman.

Flipping the script on sleaze rock tropes, with I Am Woman, Tragedy take their place as allies paying tribute to the most powerful force in their lives - celebrating womanhood in all forms on 14 newly-recorded, reinvented anthems of palpable power and fearless fun!

Having introduced their raucous trademark stage show to audiences in the USA, the UK, Germany, France, Switzerland and beyond, and releasing several albums of metalized disco, soft-rock and pop covers before even tasting their first viral hit, Tragedy proved early on that they were never just your everyday satirical cover band.

These six warriors of wacky fully embody the soul of the original and reimagine it from the top down, infusing the tracks with an undeniably infectious energy that can be felt both on stage or on wax.

And while their vibrant 80s hair metal image would imply that an evening of jokes and debauchery is afoot, while plenty of misbehavior is to be seen on the surface, one only need witness Tragedy a single time to understand that the band’s true overarching message is one of carefree joy, humanity, acceptance and the simple pursuit of a damn good time.

Propelled by this spirit of liberty and showcasing the raw performance talent of each band member, on I Am Woman, Tragedy turn the energy up to 11 with recharged dancehall favorites like “Le Freak”, “Respect” (feat. Marcy Harriell) and “I’m So Excited”, and double down on the drama with heavy, recomposed covers of belt-worthy classics “Memory” (feat. Mrs. Smith), “Goldfinger” and “Roar”.

Tracks like “I Will Survive” evoke the spirit of Queen with choral harmonies and blazing solos, while unabashed anthems like “She Bop” and “Venus” fully convince with authentic 80s hair metal flavor. Power metal reigns on the band’s opus-like version of “Flashdance... What a Feeling” and the theatrical Maiden-meets-Meatloaf-esque “Lay All Your Love On Me”.

I Am Woman is bolstered by a retro production aura that allows the intricacy of each rearrangement decision to shine, as blistering guitar work, classic drumlines and dynamic vocal performances cascade throughout each track.

With I Am Woman, Tragedy truly embody the spirit of metal classics while providing a fresh take on some of the world’s most timeless classics of empowerment, independence and self-love - important messages that resonate now more than ever!»
