Gone began as a solo project by Nate Crawford. Typically playing as a two-piece live with a different line up of drummers taking place over the years, he began building a local following. In 2018 he began writing with Brett Helke. The two were both looking for outlets for their songs, so one would play while the other essentially taught themselves how to play drums. Over time things began to click. Growing closer over the years through their shared love for bands like Unwound, Blonde Redhead, and Duster, they wrote enough material to put out their first full length.
