Tragedy Again is D.I.'s fourth full-length studio album, which was released in 1989.

Overall, this album is considerably more straightforward and as strong as the band's anticipated but disappointing 1988 album What Good Is Grief to a God? Like many of their albums, it became a cult favorite among die-hard D.I. fans. This was the only D.I. studio album to feature guitarist Sean Elliot, who replaced Mark "The Kid" Creak during the What Good Is Grief to a God? tour, but left around 1991.

Tragedy Again was also the first D.I. album not featuring any re-recordings of songs from their previous albums. As of 2008, the album is out of print.
