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.
 
LOUDWIRE: "one of the hottest bands on the internet...not just fun and catchy — Tragedy rules!"
ALL ABOUT THE ROCK: "far from being a novelty act, these guys are GENIUS. If they don't put a smile on your face, you must be dead inside"
 
Born out of the impenetrable divide of Disco and Metal, these fearsome brothers fearlessly obliterated the truce line that had been set in the great Disco/Metal Peace accord of 1977 when they seamlessly blended the two genres with their debut album, We Rock Sweet Balls and Can Do No Wrong - a collection of Bee Gees songs redone in a heavy metal treatment reminiscent of Judas Priest, Motley Crue and Guns N Roses. Since then, they have crisscrossed the globe with their spectacular live shows and having stormed across the USA, UK, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France and Switzerland. Subsequent full length albums, Humbled By Our Greatness, Death To False Disco Metal, The Solo Albums, The Joy of Sex and Tragedy Goes to the Movies have seen them spread their glittered wings to take on non Bee Gees classics from the disco era, soft rock anthems and party jams.In 2015, Tragedy broke the internet with a viral video featuring their take on You're the One That I Want from the Grease soundtrack.  In 2017, Tragedy's video for Stayin' Alive broke the internet once again.  
 
Tragedy has headlined festival stages such as SXSW (USA), CMJ (USA), Musikfest (USA), Bloodstock (UK), Rebellion (UK), Summer Breeze (Germany), Foudrock (France), Motocultor (France), Glastonbudget (UK), Legends of Rock (UK) and Hammerfest/Hard Rock Hell (UK)
