In support of their latest album, Death to False Disco-Metal, Tragedy embarks on a decimating tour of the UK.
This band of flamboyant men dressed in spandex, leather and sequins, take your favourite Bee Gees, disco and soft-rock classics and reinvents them in a Heavy Metal fashion. The result is aural ecstasy. You may enter the Tragedy experience unaware of your latent appreciation for gooey soft rock or flamboyant metal, but you shall emerge forever humbled by the greatness of Tragedy, covered in glitter and with a smile that will last for days.
Tragedy has sold out venues like Bowery Ballroom, Brooklyn Bowl and Terminal 5 in their hometown of NYC, as well as those in far-away lands such as London, Glasgow, Disneyland, Austin, Boston, DC, Tampa. Festivals include Guilfest (UK, with Motorhead), Summer Breeze (Germany), Bloodstock (UK, headlining) and Hammerfest (UK, headlining). The band has appeared on VH1 Classic’s That Metal Show, Bruce Dickinson’s Rock Show and has received international airplay. Tragedy has released three critically acclaimed albums: We Rock Sweet Balls and Can Do No Wrong, Humbled By Our Greatness, and their latest, Death to False Disco-Metal.
"Tragedy manage to dwell in the realm of novelty while far exceeding their worth as a concept . . . the aesthetic is somewhere in between the flamboyance of the disco-era Bee Gees and the flamboyance of mid-eighties hair metal, with some extra flamboyance thrown in for the sake of flamboyance."
Tiny Mix Tapes
"Hard riffs, tight white flares, and even tighter octave-scraping harmonies…essential listening."
The Sun, UK
"Everyone from Feist to Tom Jones has covered the disco hits of the Bee Gees, but perhaps no one does those gooey soft-rock numbers better than Tragedy…Shiny costumes, dramatic eye makeup and headbanging hilarity…"
"The greatest heavy-metal-meets-disco party you could possibly wish for."
"Back in the dark days of disco, the Bee Gees were the shit, despite having massive teeth, bigger hair and a falsetto only dogs could hear…with the righteous power of heavy metal, We Rock Sweet Balls and Can Do No Wrong mixes Guns ‘N’ Roses swagger, the Scorpions’ sense of pomp and Judas Priest-esque vocals to create a sound that is exactly like The Darkness!"
Dead Happy are a Freaky Disco Metal duo from the West Midlands.
An eclectic fusion of electronic metal madness, Dead Happy are like nothing you've heard before. With pounding guitar riffs, hooky electronic breakdowns and anarchic vocals, Dead Happy aim to keep the listener on their toes. Combining a frantic live show with a unique sound, audiences have enjoyed the unpredictable and offbeat experience that Dead Happy deliver.
In September 2014, Dead Happy signed with record label Coffee Jingle Records and are set to release their debut EP 'Banana God' in early 2015

WINTER STORM are a five piece Dark Melodic Female Fronted Metal band hailing from the West Midlands, United Kingdom.
Winter Storm began in 2008 with a vision to create a band that would be heavy, atmospheric, whilst still retaining traits of the Gothic Metal sound, but providing a more Melodic Metal edge.
Since 2009, Winter Storm have supported: Alestorm, Mortad, Delain, Sirenia, The Birthday Massacre, Theatres Des Vampires, Sarah Jezebel Deva (Ex Cradle of Filth), Die So Fluid, ReVamp, To-Mera, Lahannya, Achilla, Triaxis, Evil Scarecrow, Idiom, Voodoo Johnson, Raggedy Angry, The Eden House and more.
In 2010, Winter Storm released their debut album, Serenity In Darkness. The album features fan favourites such as; The Embrace, Prison Cell, Firedancer and Internal Storm. The album received an 8/10 from Poweplay's Andrew Hawnt who stated:
"Here's a band that have got their sound and image sorted. Winter Storm have the air of a band who know exactly what they want to do and how they want to do it; their sound is defined by the vocals and guitars of frontwoman Hannah, whose classically influenced voice and slightly punky guitars add a different direction to the gothic metal blueprint. Masked keyboardist/professional wrestler adds some epic scale to the proceedings. Winter Storm are refreshingly different to the recent slew of bands in this particular genre, in that they inject a few progressive ideas into tracks such as rousing opener ''Firedancer'' and the equally marvellous ''Embrace''. While the band and their material are of high quality, songs such as ''Inner Demon'' and ''Prison Cell'' show us a band that has a very bright future with their particular brand of darkness. 8/10.
