Ever wonder what happens to carnies once they retire? It seems Gone Is Gone did too, and drew inspiration from “Gibsonton, Florida, the famous wintering and retirement home of traveling sideshow carnes” to concoct the for the band’s debut album title track, “Echolocation.”
Vocalist/bassist Troy Sanders continued to describe the video:
That’s the backdrop for this cautionary tale about two punks out on an adventure ride. Through a series of events, the mischievous energy they exert returns full circle, eventually leading to their own demise.
The “Echolocation” video stars Sanders and Gone Is Gone multi-instrumentalist/composer Mike Zarin, and it was written, produced, directed, and edited by Newmerica Media and filmed at Silver Scream FX Lab studios in Conley, GA.
About Gone Is Gone:
The quartet was formed by Zarin and At the Drive-In’s Tony 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 the internet-breaking television series, Stranger Things, Christopher Nolan’s 2010 sci-fi , Inception, multi-Emmy winning television series, Game of Thrones, and the Marvel Comics blockbuster film, 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 multi-Grammy nominees Mastodon.
