A new experimental rock band called Gone Is Gone has been formed by revered musicians Tony Hajjar (At The Drive In), Mike Zarin, Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens Of The Stone Age) and Troy Sanders (Mastodon). The collaborative group plans to debut an EP later this year through their own imprint label via Cooking Vinyl in Australia and New Zealand. In anticipation of the impending release, Gone Is Gone has unveiled a clip of a new song and will be performing their first show ever at the Dragonfly in Los Angeles on April 27.

What was once thought a distant idea, is now reality. It began when members Tony Hajjar and Mike Zarin were writing music for film trailers and they realized they had created a sound that needed a life outside of that medium. It needed a band. Fast forward through some phone calls and drinks: Troy Van Leeuwen was in. The trio met and wrote an EP within the first several sessions, but were still in need of the right vocalist. Upon first listen, Troy Sanders understood the vision and flew to Los Angeles to write and record vocals on the spot. Introducing, Gone Is Gone.
