No Sleep Records is proud to announce the release of Gone & Goner, the first full-length album from TS & The Past Haunts, spearheaded by Piebald's own Travis Shettel.
During the first week of March 2010, TS and the husband and wife rhythm section of Ben and Heather Heywood trekked up to Sacramento to track what they presumed was going to be the origins of a new album. With Robert Creek at the board, the album was tracked almost entirely live in a five-day span (only keys, percussion and vocals were overdubbed). There was not a single guitar overdub throughout the entire album, which TS himself has claimed had never happened in his entire recording history (while there is a backwards guitar during the solo of 'Janice Hayes,' it was flown in from a different take).
The band's live performance gives the album an energy that doesn't normally see its way onto conventional studio albums rendering Gone & Goner as one of the best live performances in the long player form.
