New Album, I Am Woman, Out Now via Napalm Records | Order HERE
New York City tribute masters TRAGEDY recently released their Napalm Records debut, I Am Woman, to the masses! Following fantastic album singles “Venus”, “I’m So Excited” and “I Will Survive”, today, TRAGEDY are thrilled to reveal a new music video for their reimagination of Cyndi Lauper’s “She Bop” – just in time for tomorrow’s kick off of their European/UK tour with labelmates Nanowar of Steel.
TRAGEDY says about “She Bop”:
“You gotta fight for your right – to bop! Cyndi Lauper’s song about pleasuring oneself is a great fit for our band and this album. Let your fantasies run wild! Ain’t no law against it… yet.”
TRAGEDY will kick off their co-headline European tour with Nanowar of Steel tomorrow, April 18 in Southampton, UK! After they return, TRAGEDY will head back out on the road in the US with Beatallica! See below for all tour dates.
TRAGEDY had a glitter-encrusted grip on the entertainment world when they emerged in the early 2010’s. Now, following the 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 I Am Woman! Flipping the script on sleaze rock tropes, I Am Woman pays tribute to the most powerful force in the band’s lives – celebrating womanhood in all forms on 14 newly-reinvented disco and soft rock anthems.
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 80s hair metal image would imply that plenty of misbehavior is to be seen on the surface, one only need witness TRAGEDY live 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.
…Shiny costumes, dramatic eye makeup and headbanging hilarity…”
