NYC Cover Song Reinventors TRAGEDY Release Remastered Heavy Metal Version of The Bee Gees’ Super Hit “Stayin’ Alive”

US powerhouse TRAGEDY promises another all metal tribute to The Bee Gees and beyond with its first release on Napalm Records, Disco Balls to the Wall, a collection of new masters, new mixes and some all-new recordings of TRAGEDY’s most beloved songs, out July 30. Prepare your air guitars and get the party started!

Following up on their enjoyably bombastic take on the Grease soundtrack classic “You’re The One That I Want”, NYC-based TRAGEDY swirls the spirit of disco with red-hot heavy metal on their second remastered single, “Stayin’ Alive” (The Bee Gees). The song was originally released on TRAGEDY‘s album The Joy Of Sex (2017) and supported by a hilarious music video with several nods to the 1970s classic movie, Saturday Night Fever. The video stars comedian/musician Dave Hill (Witch Taint, Last Week Tonight) in the Travolta role of Tony Manero, and also features the cabaret dance troupe, The Love Show, and of course, TRAGEDY. Shot on location at the Knitting Factory and on the streets of Brooklyn, this entertaining romp is a 3 1/2 minute tale of a disco dreamer who finds his true love of metal on the dance floor. This is the pure genius of TRAGEDY – merging the sex-appeal of disco with the mania of heavy metal, and forging an entirely new genre of disco-metal in the process.

TRAGEDY say about “Stayin’ Alive”:
This song and video represents so many awesome things about what is arguably the world’s greatest city, New York, and inarguably the world’s greatest band, TRAGEDY. NYC and TRAGEDY are a melting pot of energy, creativity…and insanity. We’ve brought together these warring worlds – disco and metal – and forged an invincible musical and cultural alliance. Travolta struts. Massive riffs. Tight pants. Lush harmonies. Is it disco? Is it metal? Yes. Yes, it is.”
Watch the video for “Stayin’ Alive

“A frenetic genre-fusing orgy. Both an ode to Brooklyn and an unexpected testament to the staying power of New York creatives. The disco-hair metal act (whose full name is Tragedy: All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees & Beyond) has melded the soundtracks of our two most fetishized decades (‘70s and ‘80s) with deafening deftness.”
(Thrillist, US)

TRAGEDY strike solid gold with Disco Balls to the Wall!

It doesn’t matter at all if you love or hate disco or metal – you will unabashedly love TRAGEDY and their bombastic, crazy mix of disco, metal, glitter and revelry! The band’s first offering with Napalm Records will include TRAGEDY’s unique twist on hits such as Abba’s “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)” and “Dancing Queen”Toto’s “Africa”Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse Of The Heart” and Adele’s intense super-hymn ”Skyfall”, just to name a few. These fearsome brothers drop the perfect selection of all-time favorite disco, soft-rock and pop favorites – completely reimagining them as glorious, red-hot heavy metal treatments.

Disco Balls to the Wall is the biggest, sexiest, collection of hits we’ve ever released. It’s as if the Bee Gees turned into werewolves, ate some teens, then bred with the local dog population; thus creating the world’s most beastly recordings of disco and soft-rock songs ever made. Sharing this album with your friends and lovers will make you 500% more desirable.”
