Gone Is Gone Go Full 30 Seconds to Mars on “Stolen From Me”

gone is gone - self-titled

So far, I’ve actually really enjoyed the songs I’ve heard from Gone Is Gone, the supergroup featuring members of Mastodon, QOTSA, and At The Drive-In. I thought “Violescent” kept the energy up and “Starlight” had a spooky ethereal vibe to it. The band was winning me over.

But I can’t say the same about their new track, “Stolen From Me,” which debuted today on Beats 1 Radio. It just leans a little too hard in the direction of mainstream radio rock, with all the stuff I dislike about the Deftones thrown in. And as much as I love and respect Troy Sanders, I’m not sure his vocal is right for that kind of sound. I don’t know, maybe I’m being more metal than thou or whatever, but I keep waiting for a kick that never happens in this one.

Anyway, what do I know, listen to “Stolen Frome Me” and judge for yourself. Gone Is Gone’s self-titled EP comes out July 8th on Rise. Pre-order it here.
