Mastodon, At The Drive-In, QOTSA Members Form Supergroup

(TeamRock Radio) Members of Mastodon, At The Drive-In and Queens Of The Stone Age have teamed up to form the band Gone Is Gone. The band will release an EP this summer on their own label in conjunction with Rise Records/BMG - and they've issued a teaser of their track Violescent.

The supergroup consists of Mastodon singer and bassist Troy Sanders, At The Drive-In drummer Tony Hajjar, Queens Of The Stone Age guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen, and guitarist and keyboardist Mike Zarin.

Gone Is Gone have also outlined plans for their first live show - they'll play the Dragonfly, Los Angeles, on April 27, with tickets available from 10am PST on April 15 (Friday).

The project is the brainchild of Hajjar, who recruited Van Leeuwen and then began looking for a singer. Hajjar tells Rolling Stone: "When thinking of singers, a few came to mind, but Troy Sanders' voice and presence kept on coming up in conversations. Both Troys had always talked about doing something together, so it was an easy connection. Sanders flew in and tracked some demos to the finished music, and it went from there.

"Mike and I have had the privilege of being part of some amazing movie trailer campaigns and scored the game Splinter Cell: Blacklist together as well. Our goal is to be able to do more of this within this project." Read more and check out the song preview here.
