The 21ST century has definitely been the era of Supergroups as we have seen so many pop up and go over the last 16 years like Audioslave, A Perfect Circle, Velvet Revolver, Oysterhead, Killer Be Killed, and now Gone Is Gone just to name a few. Gone Is Gone is a band that features Mastodon’s Troy Sanders on vocals/guitars along with bassist Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age) and drummer Tony Hajjar (At the Drive-In). The band is gearing up to release an EP and has already unveiled the track Violescent, but now they have a second song off the EP to reveal. The band in fact has unleashed a music video for the track Starlight and it’s our Music Video Of The Week. The video itself is a performance based video with the band mostly as silhouettes against a blue backdrop that helps match the mood of the track itself. When talking about the song Sanders says, “Facing adversity with magnitudes of willpower. Amassing strength to erase fear and fulfill all void with purpose. A story of survival mode. This one hits close to the heart.” The band’s EP is going to be released on July 8Th via Black Dune Records.
