Tragedy is an American hardcore punk band from Portland, Oregon, founded in 2000 in Memphis, Tennessee. The musical style of the band is mainly characterized by a hard punk sound, which is often interrupted by melodic intermediate parts and tempo changes. They experiment musically, which leads to new types of the hardcore genre. However, the band is always faithful to their punk roots. D-beat bands, such as Discharge, had a big impact on Tragedy. To date, the band does not attach much importance to celebrity, or a high profile. Above all, they are known in the DIY hardcore scene. They do not have an official website and they publicly do not give much information about themselves.
