"The American Tragedy's exquisite CD is complemented by an explosive live show and finished off with genuine professionalism usually found at the theatre and arena level. Driving guitars that hook the hard rockers balanced by beautifully melodic songwriting that keeps the girls dancing in the front rows." -Casey Phillips, Infectious Publicity New Orleans, LA

"THE AMERICAN TRAGEDY is a breath of fresh air in the wake of the hardcore/thrash sound that seems so prevalent in the music scene. Aggressive and powerful, yet very accessible. Well crafted songs, an amazing sense of dynamics, great musicianship, and a stellar vocal performance - these songs stand up to anything I've had come across my desk in a long time. THE AMERICAN TRAGEDY could well be the band that puts Shreveport on the rock map." - Paul Cannell, Program Director, KOOJ Rock 93.7 –Baton Rouge, LA
