THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “If Everything Happens For A Reason… Then Nothing Really Matters At All is the sophomore full-length from Gone is Gone, a supergroup featuring Queens Of The Stone Age guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen, Mastodon bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders, At The Drive In drummer Tony Hajjar and Mike Zarin.
Hajjar commented: “I definitely had some strong ideas coming into this record. My idea was to make a record that could be played by all of us in a certain fashion or even just one of us with some electronics. I really wanted the record to live in many forms. We feel that we accomplished that … It is a record that pushed us creatively. We expressed ourselves fully without any barriers or fear of what people would think.”
Sanders added: “I feel it is our most solid and interesting release to date. As musicians, we always seek to explore new sounds and push ourselves to create unique moods and atmospheres. In our eyes and ears, we have achieved this.”
