Introducing Mastodon-meets-QOTSA supergroup Gone Is Gone
QOTSA, Mastodon and At The Drive-In guys hook up to deliver a bold, bleak musical vision
Funny old things, supergroups. As with many things in life, the whole doesn’t always equate to the sum of the parts. Which means that for every Led Zeppelin there’s a Chickenfoot, a Zwan and an Angels & Airwaves.
At least Gone Is Gone were aware that the stakes were high from the get-go when Queens Of The Stone Age guitarist Troy van Leeuwen hooked up with At The Drive-in drummer Tony Hajjar and Mastodon bass player Troy Sanders to help flesh out a studio project started by Hajjar and soundtrack whizz Mike Zarin.
