Ska-goth (“skath”) collective Grave Danger are back and full of Halloween spirit with their new album Tomb It May Concern. To promote the new release (which is available now at Bandcamp), the band released a new single: “Undead End Job!”

From The Grave Danger Press Release
Songwriter David Schwantes says: “‘Undead End Job’ is Grave Danger doing what it does best. The song has bouncy horn parts, a driving groove, and the line “Had half a doughnut though I’m hungry for blood”. We played more with syth leads in this song and it really added something cool, particularly where the organ and syth play off each other in the bridge. With the scope of instrumentation in the band (a four piece horn section, synths, organs, harmonies galore) we tried to focus on giving each song on this record exactly what it needed to create a big sound without muddying things up and Undead is a great example of that spooky mix coming together.”
The idea of a “skath” band stems from a strange place: What would a goth ska band sound like, one combined the Misfits’s aesthetic with Reel Big Fish’s goofball schtick?
Berkley, CA’s Grave Danger continues to answer this question on ‘Tomb It May Concern’, the follow-up to their 2018 debut.
Cool stuff! They even included a Misfits cover: “Halloween!” Check out their nifty cover art below.
These guys are fun! Glad to see they’re back with all new stuff. I’m still full of Halloween spirit. How about you?
