I'm Already Gone

Album: Common Courtesy (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This acoustic lament was written by vocalist Jeremy McKinnon on the tour bus during the band's 2009 tour with Bring Me the Horizon in the UK. It was demoed acoustically a couple of years later before being included on the Common Courtesy album.
  • The music video was shot in London. "The song was actually written in the UK, so it just seemed fitting to do a video that was based there for it," vocalist McKinnon told MTV News. "It was just cool to see the city like that. It was different for us, and that's why I liked it. It turned a rainy day into an experience I'll never forget."
