THE BEAUTIFUL MISTAKE returns with a brand new EP You’re Not Broken. I Am to be released March 27th via Wiretap Records (US) and Disconnect Disconnect Records (UK/EU). The first single “Memento Mori” will debut later this month.
“Memento Mori” is the first song off the new EP, which picks up right where the band left off delivering their signature equal parts melody with screaming. The band is set to perform on the 20 year anniversary of Furnace Fest in Birmingham, AL featuring Further Seems Forever, BoySetsFire, From Autumn to Ashes, Converge, Cave In, The Beautiful Mistake, Mineral, Hot Water Music, Hopesfall, Zao, Norma Jean, Shai Halud, and more.
The Beautiful Mistake played its last full-band show at Purple Door fest in Pennsylvania in 2005 before quietly going silent. In 2018, The Beautiful Mistake (Josh Hagquist, Shawn Grover, Jon Berndtson, Josh Quesada) announced they would play two reunion shows in Southern California in late March. The first show was at Chain Reaction in Anaheim, and the second was at Brick By Brick in San Diego. That reunion in many ways helped inspire new music. Now a five-piece, with original guitar player Steve Dunlap rejoining, the band entered the studio in mid 2019 to record five songs with Beau Burchell (Saosin). The result, a brand new EP You’re Not Broken. I Am, due out March 27th.
