Warner Brother Records are set to release The Crimea's debut album 'Tragedy Rocks' on the 17th of October. Originally from Wales The Crimea are fronted by ex-Crockett frontman and part-time poet Davey McManus. 'Tragedy Rocks' has been described as "a lush and lacerating collection of edgy and melodic cocktails sweetened by sonic ambition and spiked with frontman Davey McManus' debauched, bitter-funny tales of mean streets, meaner romance, good gin and not-so-good times."
One of The Crimea's first breaks came when Davey spotted Fran Healy of Travis and passed him a demo. A week later The Crimea opened for Travis at Brixton Academy. Kings Of Leon were also suitably impressed with The Crimea and also offered them a support slot.
In anticipation for the release of the album 'Tragedy Rocks' contactmusic.com has 2 free downloads to offer you, 'White Russian Galaxy' and 'Out of Africa', just to get those taste buds tingling!!
