The New Yorkers Tribute Metal Disc Band will release "Disco Balls to the Wall". It will be out on 30th of July 2021 via Napalm Records.

Are you ready? Well it's not the AC DC song, but are you ready for a good time party started with the hottest Metal Tribute to "The Bee Gees"?

Well Tragedy, the cover band from New York City, will release "the best of" of them, remastering the best songs into a "Disco Balls to the Wall", on July 30 2021 via NR.

You love Disco or Metal? It Doesn't matter. You will unashamed love Tragedy and their explosive, crazy mix of Disco, Metal, shimmer and festivity, power version of "You're the One That I Want", out on 4th of May 2021. Tragedy already broke the internet back in 2015 with the viral video for their energetic take on the Grease soundtrack classic, but now it’s time to mosh on the dancefloor again to a new, remastered version of the song!

TRAGEDY say about “You’re the One That I Want”:

“We found the inner-METAL spirit of Grease...and it runs deep. 1950's greasers, 1970's Travolta, 1980's metal and 1990's grunge, all come together in a new-millennium melting pot - creating a kick-ass high school for adults portraying teens. You better shape up!”

(VH1, US) - "You’re the One That I Want’ Heavy Metal Tribute to Grease is as great as it sounds. They created a music video for the cover, and it is exactly what you’d think a heavy metal version of Grease would look like. Between the crazy outfits, wild hair, air guitars, and locker room parties, the only question left to ask is, why hasn’t this idea been adapted into a full length movie yet? We want more!"

TRAGEDY strike solid gold with "Disco Balls to the Wall".

The band's first offering with NR (Napalm Records), will include Tragedy's unique twist on hits such ABBA's "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!" and "Dancing Queen", "Africa" from Toto, Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of The Heart" and the greatest song "Skyfall" from Adele, among other's.

These fearsome brothers drop the perfect selection of all-time favourite disco, soft-rock and pop favourites – 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.”

Get your body shaking when Tragedy start to rock out with The Bee Gee’s “Stayin' Alive”, “How Deep Is Your Love” and “Tragedy”, and head bang to the tunes of Slayer’s heavy riffing thrash thunder “Raining Blood” combined with “It’s Raining Men” from American duo The Weather Girls in a way absolutely you never heard before. "Disco Balls to the Wall " is a smashing live version of Donna Summer’s fabulous “Hot Stuff”, featuring Alex Skolnick of Testament on lead guitar. How cool is that? But don't stop party mate as long as there’s a repeat button to push heavily!

The notion, while subversive and humorous, goes well beyond what others have done in satirical music, Tragedy celebrates the spirit of the original song, even while turning the soundscape on its head. The amps are cranked to eleven, but the emotion is not lost. You’ll discover a new meaning in songs that have been a part of your life as long as you can remember. You’ll laugh you'll cry, you'll dance and you'll mosh, and feel again connected to the disco-metal that was inside you all along.

Tragedy’s past releases have charted on the NACC Heavy Top 10, and the band was awarded a 2019 Album of the Year nod by the Necro sexual via Metal Injection and described as “one of the hottest bands on the internet” by Loud wire. Due to their energizing and captivating live performance, TRAGEDY have already turned venues all around the globe into a hefty disco metal night and are absolutely ready to spread their glittered wings even further with their upcoming, dominating album of “best of” favourites, "Disco Balls to the Wall".

We can not forgot, back to 2000 Yngwie Malmsteen in the album Anthology 1994-1999, covered the Abba's song "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!", changing, "A Man After Midnight" for "A Love After Midnight". In 2001, ABBA Metal (A Tribute To ABBA), the Swedish Metal bands made a tribute to the Legendary Swedish Icon ABBA.
