Gone Is Gone (Mastodon, Queens of the Stone Age, At the Drive-In) unveil new track “Sometimes I Feel”

Posted by on September 4, 2020


Gone Is Gone, the supergroup featuring Troy Sanders (Mastodon), Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age), Tony Hajjar (At The Drive-In) and Mike Zarin (founder of Sencit Music), has unveiled a new song “Sometimes I Feel.” The track began as a collaboration during the time of quarantine earlier on in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, as the group explains:

“”Sometimes I Feel” 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. It’s an odd turn for us as a band that reflects an odd turn for us as a society.” 


Leeuwen adds:

“You’re in a blissful dream filled with love and light. 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 realize 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.”
