Say Hello to Tragedy is the seventh full-length album by Caliban. The album was released on August 24, 2009 (Europe), with Century Media Records, instead of the usual, Roadrunner Records.

"24 Years", the lead single from Say Hello to Tragedy was released on July 17 on the band's Myspace. A second song, "Caliban's Revenge" was released on their Myspace page on July 24. A full album stream was put up on August 13. A video was also made for "24 Years" and "Caliban's Revenge".

The album entered the German Media Control chart at No. 36.

The concept of Say Hello to Tragedy comes from questioning why tragedies happen nowadays that could have been prevented.

Guitarist Marc Goertz commented, “If people would just open their eyes and at least care a bit about their neighbours, relatives and the world in general, a lot of this adversity could be avoided. Some of our new songs are entirely fictional, whereas other ones refer to real life dramas like the Fritzl case.”
