At the Drive-In / Mastodon / Queens of the Stone Age Supergroup Gone Is Gone Reveal Debut EP
Published Apr 20, 2016Earlier this month, members of At the Drive-In, Mastodon and Queens of the Stone Age revealed that they had united as supergroup Gone Is Gone. After teasing a stomped-out snippet of music, the band have now unveiled the details behind their self-titled EP, as well as premiered a new track.
The band have confirmed that their eight-song debut arrives July 8 through Rise Records/BMG. Ahead of that, they're streaming the record's "Violescent," and you can check it out below.
As previously reported, Gone Is Gone brings together At the Drive-In drummer Tony Hajjar, Mastodon bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders, Queens of the Stone Age guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen and multi-instrumentalist Mike Zarin. Hajjar and Zarin had worked on videogame scores together for a few years before putting the group together.
Leeuwen was brought into the project in 2012, with the three tracking material together in California. Sanders was later drafted into Gone Is Gone to add vocals.
"The vibe from day one was, and has been, very therapeutic and refreshing for me," Sanders had previously told Rolling Stone. "The chemistry was immediate. I can only dedicate myself to something that rewards me purely, and we are all in this for the right reasons."
Gone Is Gone will perform their first show at Los Angeles' Dragonfly venue on April 27.
