Members: Skot, Kolby, Adam, Dave, Lynn
Initially formed in the fall of 2007, when bassist Adam Starrett and drummer Lynn Hayes teamed up with vocalist Scott Welch and guitarist Kolby Kinsey, the four set out to put together a true band of brutality with such a captivatingly crushing sound that would be a force to be reckoned with. With the addition of guitarist David Dunlevy, who joined the fold in August of 2008, Bloodshot Tragedy is a powerhouse quintet of insanity with punishing hooks, brutal grooves, and a wide range of metal influences, old and new alike, while retaining the groupâs collective distinct personality.Over the course of the last year, this bandâs onslaught of live shows have been widespread throughout the DFW area, as both supporting act and headliner alike, in various venues such as the historic Ridglea Theatre, Dreamworld Music Complex, the Curtain Club, Vampire Lounge, Skillman St. Bar and
Rockstar Sportsbar, just to name a few. In that amount of time, the group has collected recordings and video footage from numerous shows as well as the two song demo that was recorded in January of 2009 with producer and studio/sound engineer D. Braxton Henry, along with their music video of Lifeless, filmed in the Spring of 2010 at Dallas Sound Lab by director Corey Parker. In May of 2010, after much debate which led to impasse, Lynn and the guys parted company, which led to auditions for another drummer. Subsequently, after months of auditioning multiple candidates, the responsibility on the drums have been taken up by Adamâs brother, Brad Starrett. Check them out soon; Bloodshot Tragedy is a relatively new but experienced band to hit the Dallas/Ft. Worth area!
