Troy Sanders and Gone is Gone Release Second Full-Length Album
A month after releasing a new album with Killer Be Killed, Mastodon bassist Troy Sanders has another new record out with another project called Gone is Gone. If Everything Happens For A Reason… Then Nothing Really Matters At All is the second full-length album from the band, which also features Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age), Tony Hajjar (At The Drive-In), and Mike Zarin.
The band says this is the culmination of ideas and seeds of songs that have been ruminating since their inception in 2015. Their approach became very textural with dark, cinematic themes.
“This album really goes back to the original idea of what the band was meant to be when we put it together. Having songs, but really having pieces, having a more soundscape approach,” Sanders explains. “The four of us really love the record, it’s totally unlike anything any of us have ever done. We feel this is an album to be taken in and absorbed from top to bottom. There are so many aspects that I really love, for me to be able to be the sole vocalist and write lyrics that are very personal to me is incredibly rewarding. It’s a real compliment that those guys want me to be the sole singer in the band, that makes me really happy, and it means I can really explore my own personal ideas.”
