The highly-awaited single is out today and available on all digital platforms
accompanied with a new video directed by Freangel Pacheco
Hamburg, Germany (July 17, 2020) — Hard rock, Gone Is Gone return with a second single, “Everything Is Wonderfall” after releasing, No One Ever Walked On Water at the end of 2019. The new single is accompanied by a new music video released today on Clouds Hill.
Earlier this week the band teased a snippet of the new single on their Instagram for fans giving them a glimpse of their latest single written and arranged by the band. Everything Is Wonderfall delivers a powerful mantra, a meditation of an uncertain universe that we may be in tune with, but is not in tune with us capturing a heavy and dark melancholic sound and lyrics mixed with rock-riffs and mid-tempo bass.
“As the world was locking down and musicians were figuring out a new normal, we were fortunately and unfortunately doing what this band has always had to do to continue creating. This song was started with a jam and then cut up and edited to be fitting to a new sound that we are trying out. We want our songs to be able to fit in a band format or switch into an electronic based format that can live on its own as a second arm of the bands sound. Looking forward to everybody hearing the rest of the songs,” commented Tony Hajjar about the song.
The video for, “Everything Is Wonderfall” was created once again with Freangel Pacheco who collaborated with the band on their last video, No One Ever Walked On Water. Due to the current pandemic preventing the band from coming together in person, each band member filmed themselves performing the song and worked with Freangel to create a visualizer that represented the central themes of the song; that this a person trapped in an endless cycle, a frustrating monotony, an inescapable rat race type of existence that’s chipping away at his/her psyche. The chorus is looking at the bright side of life; to wonder. And as the song is ending, it shows that we are in a cyclical pattern: Wonder, fall, repeat and ultimately falling.
Gone is Gone features members of three of this millennium’s most significant crossover bands in the realm of metal, hard rock and post-hardcore: bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders of Mastodon, guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen of Queens of the Stone Age, dummer Tony Hajjar of At The Drive-In and multi-instrumentalist, composer and founder of Sencit Music, Mike Zarin.
