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” and “She Bop”, today, TRAGEDY are thrilled to reveal a new music video for their reimagination of Shirley Bassey’s classic James Bond title track “Goldfinger” – just in time for this week’s kick off of their second UK leg of a massive wold tour
Tragedy’s freshest member, Gibbon Ass Freehly, over 400 years younger than the rest of us (he’s from the future…long story), takes the lead here on our twist on this classic Bond theme. We’ll cover you in goosebumps and glitter!
Director Cara Maria O’Shea’s video was inspired by the original film’s opening credits, which featured movie scenes superimposed over a golden woman in silhouette.
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 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…”

“Hard riffs, tight white flares, and even tighter octave-scraping harmonies… essential listening”
– The Sun (UK)
