Adam Dale talks about new music, life, and ‘The American Tragedy’

  • Joel Rodgers

This past weekend Adam Dale hit the stage at Strange Brew and the crowd was digging it. He has new music, new music, and new music. He’s been busy.

The talented Adam Dale brought his smooth voice and powerful guitar skills for a rare performance in Shreveport. Dale has been playing the guitar since age 14. He’s known around the area as being the frontman for the local rock band The American Tragedy, an explosive rock band established in Shreveport, LA in 2000.

Dale is now married with two kids and has to make the decision on making records, or playing live shows. Shreveport was treated to a recent show at Strange Brew.

“Trying to be more musically productive. This year i put out the Sad Bastards EP, The Rougaroux EP, Word Modern-Islands EP ( coming this month), and the full length album Shadowtown (October), that has been a work in progress for several years now. Im glad you guys continue to check the stuff out. Can’t wait for this Shadowtown record to release. May be my favorite so far,” says Adam Dale.

Dale is excited about his new projects like his work with Rougaroux. “Louisiana has a rich musical history and is often overlooked on the world stage but on this record we got to play with some incredible artists that have shared the stage with the likes of Toto, edgar winter, sting, mark knopffler, john mayer, marc broussard, eric clapton……the list goes on and on. This music is not just music. Its a culmination of the people making the music. Just like the food of the region, its a melting pot of ideas. Its fun, its loud, and its goofy at times. We want to thank everyone who helped us with this. I expect to hear this at all the tailgates,” says Adam Dale.

The question I had to ask Adam Dale concerned The American Tragedy (one of my favorite ands ever).

Dale says that Tragedy has “pretty much an entire EP written and just needs to get together and record it.”

“We always talk about getting together and pumping it out, last hoorah, and just put it out there so we can come that chapter of our lives. We all had very fond memories of that,” Says Dale on American Tragedy making one last record.
