New York City tribute masters TRAGEDY will release their upcoming full-length album, ‘I Am Woman’, this Friday, March 3, 2023 via Napalm Records! 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.

What better way for the inventors of “disco metal” to ring in their new album and tour than by revealing a metallic cover of one of the greatest disco anthems of all time? That’s right – as they continue on their current USA tour with Steel Panther and Crobot and prepare to drop ‘I Am Woman’, TRAGEDY brings fans a campy, charging cover of Gloria Gaynor’s hit track “I Will Survive”! Evoking the spirit of Queen with soaring choral harmonies before landing with an 80s metal twist, the track boasts fun electric riffage and blazing solos!

TRAGEDY says about “I Will Survive”:

“Here, we deconstruct this iconic disco anthem, and dig deep into the fear and rage lingering under the surface of the original. In the video, the Greek chorus, Mo’Royce and his dancer alter-ego tell the story of emerging from a toxic relationship and learning how to thrive as a strong, independent spirit. It embodies the album’s theme – inhabiting each other’s stories while turning sweet disco into hot, molten metal.”

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!


Having introduced their raucous trademark stage show to audiences in the USA, the UK, Germany, France, Switzerland and beyond, and releasing several albums of metallized 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…”

– The Village Voice (US)


“Hard riffs, tight white flares, and even tighter octave-scraping harmonies… essential listening”

– The Sun (UK)

Pre-Order ‘I Am Woman’ HERE
On ‘I Am Woman’, TRAGEDY turn the energy up to 11 with recharged dancehall favorites like “Le Freak”, “Respect” (featuring soul powerhouse Marcy Harriell) and “I’m So Excited”, and double down on the drama with heavy, recomposed covers of belt-worthy classics “Memory” (featuring legendary drag performer, singer and guitarist 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!
