Gone Is Gone – S/T EP

The New Hotness Series, Part 4: Gone Is Gone – S/T EP

A brilliant gift from my lovely wife, this 8-song LP EP is all kinds of awesome.

Supergroup* pulls off one weighty, varied, completely compelling disc. Troy Saunders is all over this disc – you know those slower, sludgier Mastodon tracks? That, but with all the other guys adding their own brilliant touches to it all, the whole affair is melodic, powerful, and heavy. At 1/2 hour, it’s short, but an album approaches this year. Prepare – these guys kick ass!

* The Players:
Troy Saunders (Mastodon)
Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens Of The Stones Age)
Tony Hajjar (At The Drive-In)
Mike Zarin (Sencit Music, Sweethead)

Supergroups Afoot!

Remember when Killer Be Killed dropped their amazing supergroup record, a while back?

Here comes a couple more!

1) Gone Is Gone

Get ready for Gone Is Gone, they’re gonna rock us!

There’s an EP coming in July, and talk of a full-length album later this year.

Gone Is Gone is:
Troy Sanders (Mastodon)
Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens Of The Stone Age)
Tony Hajjar (At The Drive-In)
Mike ZarinSencit Music/Sweethead)

Check out Violescent right here!

The self-titled EP drops July 8, 2016.


2) Giraffe Tongue Orchestra

Mike gave me the heads-up on this upcoming new release.

Not gonna lie, it’s a bit of a dumb-ass band name, but all of the players in the band are from bands that I love, so my level of excitement is pretty high!

The Giraffe Tongue Orchestra is:
William DuVall (Alice In Chains)
Brent Hinds (Mastodon)
Thomas Pridgen (Mars Volta)
Ben Weinman (Dillinger Escape Plan)
Pete Griffin (Dethklok)

I know! It’s reported that the album also features Juliette Lewis, and Jon Theodore of Queens Of The Stone Age.

Click this link to hear the first single, Crucifixion. Crank it!

Broken Lines drops on September 23, 2016.


Mark your calendars for all of these releases, folks!

Thanks for reading this far. As a reward, here’s a pic of another supergroup that really oughta happen any day now, right? (Haha)
