Met leden van Mastodon, Queens Of The Stone Age en At The Drive In moet dat wel vuurwerk geven.

Nieuwe single van metalsupergroep Gone Is Gone

Gone Is Gone, dat zijn bassist-zanger Troy Sanders van Mastodon, gitarist Troy Van Leeuwen van Queens Of The Stone Age, drummer Tony Hajjar van At The Drive In en multi-instrumentalist, componist en oprichter van Sencit Music Mike Zarin.

Opgestart in volle quarantaine zijn ze na Everything Is Wonderfall toe aan een tweede single, die je hieronder kan beluisteren. Mike Zarin licht toe: “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. 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”, voegt Troy Van Leeuwen daaraan toe. “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.”
