Canada’s GONE COSMIC have released their first single, “Deadlock” off their upcoming debut album “Sideways In Time”. “Deadlock” is premiered on TheObelisk and will certainly satisfy cravings for powerful, soulful and progressive psychedelic rock.
Starting out with a single riff that flourishes into a multitude of insane riffs, GONE COSMIC combines thick n’ dirty bass lines, essential groove and energetic lyrics and melodies to create an intricate soundtrack to guide you on a galactic journey. “Deadlock” is the spaceship that allows the listener to tune out of the everyday immediate satisfaction and social media obsessed society and lose themselves in the ‘cosmic nod’ of the heavy psychedelic experience of the music.
The band comments:
“‘Sideways in Time’ was created for the every-day music lover and listener to lay on the floor and absorb the sounds and journey, to the well-seasoned musician to break it down and get technical. Our hope is that people enjoy what they hear and come out and catch a show. It’s a whirlwind for sure, these songs aren’t written with an ABC formulaic map.”

Championed by a soaring songstress Abbie Thurgood (The Torchettes), whose boldly evocative tones recall Skunk Anansie chanteuse Skin and Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard, and accompanied by an agile and aggressive psych-rock outfit, composed of guitarist Devin “Darty” Purdy (Chron Goblin), bass player Brett Whittingham (Chron Goblin), percussionist Marcello Castronuovo (Witchstone), Gone Cosmic has carved out an expansive domain that stretches from sweltering Southern sludge pits to breath-stealing sonic spacewalks.
A blood (orange)-scented breeze that bows the trees, Gone Cosmic chases the infinite haze from the skies and puts it right back in your eyes. Groove-mining breakdowns become the stuff of legend as the four pieces’ floor-thudding tail kick and hellfire halo holler originates a whole that is far more potent than the sum of its individual elements. Meet your new astromancers, the phase-shifting and hard- rocking force that channels the empyreal sounds of heaven on Earth.

“And then there’s Gone Cosmic with their Sideways In Time album, released through Kozmik Artifactz. Set for an early April release this is some grade A, female-fronted psych rock, it whirls and it winds and it wails like a hard rocking banshee on the prowl! Simply stunning!” – Stoner Hive
“It feels like an evolution of the genre” – Chris Beck – Doom Tomb
“Fresh off of announcing their signing to the Kozmik Artifactz label before the April release of their debut Sideways in Time (so bleeding bloody good, by the way), this Calgary supergroup comprised of members of Chron Goblin, Witchstone and Joplin-esque lung pummeler Abbie Thurgood, formerly of The Torchettes, are a heavy, groovy, psych-storm, headtrip. You’re welcome.” – Mike Bell – YYScene
“ It works in a spectacularly gnarly and boombastic, rifftastic, fantastic Joplin blues-rock way.” Mike Bell – YYScene
“Awakening the ears and seducing souls with an addictive pairing of folk-blues and psych-rock, Calgary’s Gone Cosmic is a band that thrives on the mix of complementary and contrasting traits that each member brings to the party. “ – Christine Leonard – Beatroute
“The electromagnetic energy generated when Thurgood’s soaring vocals and passionate lyrical narratives are added to the compelling riffs and hypnotic pulses of the band’s instrumentation is a stunning and stimulating force to behold. “ – Christine Leonard – Beatroute
