Loud, melodic, riff-driven and raucous are Melbourne 4 piece Tragic Earth’s musical trademarks, blending a mesh of grunge, metal and stadium rock to their own unique sound. The band are hitting the highway as they kick off their Stumbelina tour doing what they love best, playing live. The band hit the stage of the Basement in Canberra on Saturday 25th July, Cherry Bar Melbourne on Sunday 26th July and Sunday 9th August at Brunswick Hotel Melbourne with more dates to be announced soon.
If you love your rock hard driven, upbeat but with a dark tinge, then Tragic Earth are bound to please. Having formed in October last year the band have wasted no time in carving a name for themselves in the hard rock scene with their rhythmic chainsaw guitars, coupled with whirling sonics and have played a remarkable amount of shows for being together a short time. But that is Tragic Earth for you – an unstoppable force where once they start. They put on a blistering and immediate show.
Canberra is the first cab off the rank of the tour when they perform at the Basement in Canberra for Storm The Capital along with Frankenstein’s Baby, Tragic Earth, Dog’s Breakfast & Upside Down Miss Jane on Saturday July 25. Next up rolling in to the iconic Cherry Bar in Melbourne’s AC/DC Lane on Sunday July 26 the band will be joined by the crunching melodies of special guests The Soulenikoes, and New Zealand power groove of Logic Defies Logic in what will be a heavy charged night.
Tragic Earth have performed an impressive 40+ shows across Australia thus far including festival appearances. The band consists of Dima Shafro (vocals), Gavin Zacher (guitar), Chris Borg (bass), and Mick Casmi (drums) and have released a debut EP and two singles (Feels Good, Could Be Better and Obsessive Depressive) to date.
Rod Whitfield, of SF Media and heavy rock/metal veteran writer for Beat, Forte amongst other publications described the band as saying ‘These guys punch out a raucous style of heavy Aussie pub rock, but it’s also pub rock with a difference. Sure, you can very comfortably swagger and sway your drunken way around the dancefloor/pit of a sweaty, sticky carpeted pub to this. But this band inject a little raunch and a little boogie into their sound as well, and this sets them apart from the tired, soundalike Aussie rock mob.’
Dirty rock meets big metal wah-wah, Tragic Earth are an impressive hard rock act not to be missed. Make sure you catch them on their Stumbelina tour and allow yourself to be captured in their musical web.’
