“…we reached this weird combinationof The Collins Kids and Foghat…which should not have worked but there you have it… It was an album full of surprises…”

Release date: May 26th 2017

“Sure as the Sun goes down over the Mississippi, Dan Montgomery makes great records. Gone‘s one of the best, bubbling over with give-me-more guitar tones, gorgeous production and real, honest to god songs”
Chris Davis, Memphis Flyer

Memphis Americana stalwart Dan Montgomery returns with his fifth full length album GONE.    A raucous record of disorientation, lost love…and eventual acceptance…all with a walloping  back beat ! “It’s really not about heartbreak or relationships so much as it’s about that moment when you look around and wonder…What the hell just happened…and where you go from there” says Montgomery “Luckily these are not all my stories!”

With the opening one – two salvo of “Gettin Up” and the title track it’s clear that this is no hum & strum sub Blood on the Tracks, GONE is the breakup album you can dance to.

Written and recorded  with his Memphis based band (Robert Mache’ – guitar vocals Jeremy Scott – Bass  James Cunningham – Drums and Candace Mache’ – vocals), the same band that played on 2014’s acclaimed Sin, Repent, Repeat. “I got my electric guitar out of hock” says Montgomery about the more rocking collection of songs on the new album. “Seriously” he continued, ” I write to my rhythm section more than anything else and James & Jeremy can bring the big beat . I brought a new song in every Monday and we’d bang it out a few times and sure enough we’d have a take. It was all very brash and immediate and that’s certainly reflected in the song selection.” While there are several drop dead gorgeous ballads like “What Am I Here For” and the closing “A Little Tear”(presented in it’s original demo form the day it was written), the meat of this album is in it’s rock and roll heart. “With the penultimate track “Gotta Go” we reached this weird combination of The Collins Kids and Foghat…which should not have worked but there you have it… It was an album full of surprises”

GONE was released on May 26th and was followed up with an east Coast tour starting June 8th and culminating in a Philadelphia Record Release Show at World Cafe Live. “Touring with the full band(plus special guests along the way) is my favorite thing to do ” says Montgomery ” and we’re really firing on all cylinders right now. There’s gonna be some barn burners on this tour for sure !”.
