Three months after the release of their eponymous EP, Gone Is Gone have announced a January 6th release date for their full-length debut, ‘Echolocation‘ via Black Dune Records / Cooking Vinyl Australia.
The quartet, which features vocalist/bassist Troy Sanders, guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen, drummer Tony Hajjar and multi-instrumentalist/composer Mike Zarin, are giving fans a preview of the album with the release of first single ‘Sentient‘.

Recorded at Sencit Studios in Los Angeles (with additional tracking at Casa De Leones Studios), ‘Echolocation‘ was produced by the band and mixed by Ken Andrews (Beck, A Perfect Circle) and follows the 8-song ‘Gone Is Gone‘ release.
Asked about the evolution from the EP to ‘Echolocation‘, Mike Zarin says,
“We were able to expand on ideas that were explored early on and really build on them. By the time we got to working on the album, everything had clicked and we knew ‘this is what this is going to be.’ And that made a huge difference.”
Gone Is Gone was formed by Zarin and At The Drive-In’s Hajjar, who previously collaborated on various film trailer projects for Sencit, Zarin’s music production, licensing and supervision company. Together they’ve put together a wildly diverse sound production resume that includes trailers for Stranger Things, Inception, Game of Thrones and X-Men Apocalypse, to name but a few.
They brought in Troy Van Leeuwen, known for his work with Queens of the Stone Age, Failure, A Perfect Circle, Eagles of Death Metal and Sweethead, who in turn, brought in Troy Sanders from Mastodon.
