A Textbook Tragedy

Hailing from Vancouver B.C, Canada. A Textbook Tragedy is creating music that isnt normally heard from kids their age. Aggressive instrumentals and powerful vocals combine for a sound that can't really be classified as anything but "crazy." They have opened for bands like Misery Signals (Ferret Records), Ion Dissonance (Abacus Records), Bleed The Dream (Warcon), Stutterfly (Maverick Records) and The End (Relapse). They also participated in playing dates on the 2004 and 2005 Vans Warped Tour. The band just completed a western Canadian tour and will continue to tour North America extensively in the new year with plans to tour to Texas and then across Canada in April and July, then back down the west coast in August.

“Do yourself a favour and introduce yourselves to A Textbook Tragedy before Hot Topic embarks on their search for a watered-down equivalent.”
