THE CRIMEA

Tragedy Rocks News

Well, now the albums out on iTunes, some people have grabbed a copy and had a go at reviewing it. Top of the list is Stuart Denyer who’s posted an extremely detailed review on his Musicbox website and, other than the surprise of the early release he seems to quite like it.
The September 1st issue of American Way magazine also had a rather shorter review in their Lifestyle Trends section. Check it out via their website or by clicking more.
Cornerstone Media are most likely behind a press release causing the following three sites to have very similar news stories on the band’s album release and tour, but they’re different enough to all get a mention. RiftRock mentions the LWOA EP with a link to a WRG stream and some US tour dates, NowOnTour miss out the dates but have more links to the WRG stream and some info on Davey, while Static Multimedia leave out the stream but have loads of dates and mention the Billy Corgan tour. Hit more to read them all.
And here’s a little pic I found on Flickr from their Bestival appearance.

New to the Scene
The Crimea, Tragedy Rocks (Warner Bros.) The London-formed five-piece tore up the small stage of Austin?s Exodus at this year?s SXSW Music Conferences. Although a little more subdued, Tragedy is still full of the spark and energy that the group displayed while playing the opening slot at former Smashing Pumpkin Billy Corgan?s shows.
