Supergroup Gone Is Gone Unveil New Single, Sometimes I Feel
The band – made up of bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders of Mastodon, guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen of Queens Of The Stone Age, dummer Tony Hajjar of At The Drive In and multi-instrumentalist, composer and founder of Sencit Music, Mike Zarin – say that their latest effort “started as a collaboration under quarantine, using the limited tools we had”.

“What started with phone tag, turned into the creation of sounds using samples of voicemail bits, which turned into a visceral collaboration for all of us to subconsciously express our psyche under lockdown,” they continue. “It’s an odd turn for us as a band that reflects an odd turn for us as a society.”
“You’re in a blissful dream filled with love and light,” adds Troy Van Leeuwen. “You search for the words to express this feeling, but everything comes out jumbled and upside down. But that doesn’t matter. The feeling you’re experiencing is real enough to believe. You hear a voice repeating the word ‘happiness’. This voice is joined by a chorus of angels and every time they repeat it, the sound becomes more intense into deafening screams. As you slowly awake you realise these screams are your own. The veil of this dream unravels and dissipates to reveal the awful world that is the ‘now’ as it’s crumbling around your bed.”
