“The Cobalt venue was being saturated with a thick veil of fog as This Romantic Tragedy took to the stage and beyond. Clean vocalist Sean Neumann and lead screamer Chad Dague were right there on the floor with everyone else, performing practically in the faces of the audience members who crowded around the area. The live show This Romantic Tragedy presents is tremendously tight, with the rapturous songs reverberating throughout. Opening with a new tune entitled Illusions, the band clearly demonstrated there is a lot of life and determination to found within This Romantic Tragedy. Towards the end of the set, the band’s should-be genre classic You’re Just A Trend was delivered, still sounding more impassioned than ever. Sole original member David Diaz remains a subtle yet very vibrant presence, with all of the electricity generating from the two front men, but his guitar work was impeccable. Look to the future and you are sure to find This Romantic Tragedy rocking your world ...read m”

“In spite of recent lineup changes and a record label departure, This Romantic Tragedy continues to perform with the same sense of urgency and conviction that they’ve always maintained over the past few years. The headliners for this particular tour, the Las Vegas-based collective nearly blew the roof off the Cobalt with their devastating live performance. Opening their set with the dynamic You’re Just A Trend from their Reborn CD on Tragic Hero Records, This Romantic Tragedy presented nothing short of a mesmerizing performance. The band even premiered a new song entitled Inner Cosmos, demonstrating a decidedly progressive edge to their already imaginative sound. The two vocalists from This Romantic Tragedy were front and center, exuding an energy that was highly combustible. The clean vocals from the charismatic Sean Neumann were soaring and impassioned while the screamed parts were unleashed with a fiery magnetism by the one and only Chad Dague. more...”

“THIS ROMANTIC TRAGEDY Interview with Guitarist David Diaz By Alexa Rabini I remember when I first saw THIS ROMANTIC TRAGEDY in 2008 at a small music venue in Las Vegas called Jillian’s. Since then they have had their ups, downs, and line-up changes just like any other band, but have grown throughout these past three years. In May of 2009, they signed to Tragic Hero Records, and recently released their first full-length album Reborn.”

“Every little part of the structure of the songs all piece together nicely into one big jigsaw to create a thoroughly enjoyable record with ‘Reborn’, almost as if they have thought about how all the instruments can be put together in such a way, rather than focusing on breakdowns like a lot of bands nowadays.”

“THIS ROMANTIC TRAGEDY, "Reborn" (thisromantic tragedy.com): The CD cover is telling: Amid a bombed out landscape, with fire-scorched buildings toppled against one another like doomsday dominoes, stands a lone tree, itself nearly dead, save for a few leaves, the only signs of life -- and color -- to be seen. As such, "Reborn" is an airtight blend of melody and menace.”

“..." And then This Romantic Tragedy slammed out of the gate swinging, with Reborn being a triumph for the band on so many levels. One of the most fascinating aspects to be found on Reborn is certainly the sheer dynamics of the songs and the very creative arrangements not normally displayed within a metalcore/screamo band. It’s a powerful, cathartic work destined to gain This Romantic Tragedy a good deal of attention."”

“RUSHrockinfo Ryan Usher CD REVIEW: This Romantic Tragedy: Reborn is a solid album. A few songs sound similar, but they are all pretty good! They are a young band with great potential. Give the album a listen; I think most will enjoy it, they did a good job! Reborn gets a 7.5/10”

“8.5/10...As far as their own identity goes, This Romantic Tragedy play screamo to put it quite simply. They have some great singing, awesome screaming, breakdowns, soaring moments, and some lightly used synth work. On paper, it does not sound like anything special, and all honesty, it really isn’t something we haven’t heard before. However, This Romantic Tragedy do it all very well, therefore giving it a good name. Reborn is often quite catchy and addictive, leaving it a home in your memory.”

“This Romantic Tragedy and Hollow Tour review: ... Fans of entities such as I See Stars and Asking Alexandria are sure to meet a brand new favorite when encountering the passionate songs and intensive live performances of This Romantic Tragedy. It’s not going to be long until this Sin City collective is headlining their own tours.”

“Band born in valley on brink of releasing first full CD. This Romantic Tragedy is looking forward to what 2011 will bring, namely, more tours and a new CD. The band plans to release its first full-length CD titled "Reborn" on....”

Peter Huender - TRT-Press Release

“This Romantic Tragedy has concluding their final week at the Machine Shop recording Studio in Weehawken New Jersey, where the band has been recording their first full-length album for their record label Tragic Hero records. And the recordings are now in the capable hands of Producer Wil Putney, The Machine (Gene Freeman) and the staff at The Machine Shop. “This was quite an experience, we got in near car Crash, the car in front of us did not fare that well. We shared the Studio with Asking Alexandria, and members of Lenny Kravitz band. Chad got 20 stitches in his head after tumbling down a flight of stairs, we hung out at Times Square, and partied. We will not forget Jersey anytime soon”, Sean says, and Chad agrees holding his head.”

“This Romantic Tragedy just got done recording their Tragic Hero Records debut album at The Machine Shop in New Jersey. They released their EP “Trust in Fear” shortly after being signed in 2009. They have no release date yet for the upcoming album, but say to expect it around January 2011. read more about album....”

“Their heavies are WAY heavier, and their electro-pop melodies are well executed. Their new track, ‘The Lies We Live’, has something for all you ISS fanboys and girls out there, but is also pretty brutal, brutal enough for the rest of us. This combination is rarely done well, so props to TRT for getting it right. They are writing their first full length right now, and will be recording this September, and I look forward to hearing and reviewing it.”

"Trust In Fear" is an album that will not hold back; the definitive experimental/Screamo/Electro record of the year is here.
