I’ve been a fan of this band for a few years now. I happened upon one of their live shows when the band roared through my hometown – they had me at Bee Gee’s Metal Tribute Band – from the first chord, I was an instant fan. Once you hear these classic songs performed by TRAGEDY – you will love them all over again.
Their live show was certainly a one-of-a-kind experience – and I find the news that this talented band of metal mayhem slingers have gone and got themselves a major record deal. The press release contains all the good news but before you read all about it – you have got to check out the video and see what they are all about.
Now – the info:
“TRAGEDY rocks sweet balls and can do no wrong! They are great fun!”
(Bruce Dickinson, Iron Maiden)
If you’re allergic to smiling, be afraid… be very afraid! Napalm Records is pleased to announce that New York-based cover song reinventors TRAGEDY have inked a worldwide record deal with the premium Austrian rock and metal label!
Born out of the impenetrable divide of disco and metal, TRAGEDY takes disco, soft-rock, and pop classics, and completely re-imagines them as glorious, red-hot heavy metal. Since the debut album, We Rock Sweet Balls and Can Do No Wrong – a glamorous bunch of Bee Gees-songs redone in heavy metal manner – these fearsome brothers have seamlessly obliterated the line between disco and metal. Their music is sure to get your head banging, your booty shaking, put a smile on your face, and your fist in the air. TRAGEDY’s past releases have charted on the NACC Heavy Top 10, and the band was awarded 2019 Album of the Year by the Necrosexual on Metal Injection.
The six-piece consistently tours North America, the UK & continental Europe, and has headlined festival stages such as SXSW (USA), CMJ (USA), Musikfest (USA), Bloodstock (UK), Rebellion (UK), Summer Breeze (GER), Foudrock (FR), Motocultor (FR), ParkPop (BE), Glastonbudget (UK), Legends of Rock (UK), Belladrum (UK) and Hammerfest/Hard Rock Hell (UK).
Their first release with Napalm Records will include TRAGEDY’s unique twist on artists such as ABBA, Donna Summer, Neil Diamond, Adele, The Weather Girls, and of course, The Bee Gees.
TRAGEDY on the signing:
“We’re thrilled that TRAGEDY has signed with Napalm Records! Excited, delighted, and fully aroused. It’s awesome to be able to give our music a proper worldwide release with a beloved, internationally renowned record label. Thus begins our scheme for world domination – death to false disco-metal!” (Mo’Royce Peterson, TRAGEDY: All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees & Beyond)
It doesn’t matter if you love or hate disco metal – you will unabashedly love TRAGEDY and their bombastic mixture of both genres, glitter, and revelry.
Disco Mountain Man – lead vocals, lead keyboards
Mo’Royce Peterson – lead vocals, lead guitar
Andy Gibbous Waning – lead bass, lead vocals
Garry Bibb – lead guitar, lead vocals

Lance – towel boy, complete idiot
These guys are great – I highly recommend you check out their music – and when live shows start up again and they pull into your town – be in that audience.
