Grave Mistake is a new three piece Hard Rock band from Sacramento, California. The group made their debut in 2020 with the single “Up In Flames”. Since then Danny Snider (vocals), Dan Keenan (guitar), and Jaron Miller (drums) have been hard at work on their debut EP due later this year.
The band travelled to LA to record the new record. They employed the sizable talents of composer and Avril Lavigne bass player, Matt Reilly to produce. He also handles bass duties on the album. Regular readers of The Static Dive are familiar with Reilly. He appeared on these pages earlier this year upon the release of his solo single “error_thought/unknown.”
“Runaway” is the latest single from Grave Mistake, and their first from the forthcoming EP. The upbeat rocker combines the style and Pop sensibilities of 90’s punks like Green Day and Blink 1982 with the virtuosity of speed metal rockers. With the perfect mix of attitude and skill, Snider sings a catchy narrative about an unattainable girl. Meanwhile Miller rips Slayer-worthy double-kick drum fills and Keenan delivers an airtight power chord rhythm and plenty of smoking leads. It’s a great song from a band of top-notch musicians.
Check out “Runaway” below. You can also hear the track on the Deep Indie Dive playlist. “Runaway” was engineered and mixed by Spencer Hoad. Drums were engineered by Christian Hogan and Jake Hayden. The track was mastered by Paul Grundman at Bernie Grundman Mastering. Runaway is the first of three singles set for release this fall, with Grave Mistake’s debut EP due by the end of the year.
