The Black Queen (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Etc.) To Release New Album “Infinite Games” In September

The Black Queen, the electronic project featuring Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Killer Be Killed), Joshua Eustis (Telefon Tel Aviv), and Alexander Ryan (Nine Inch Nails/A Perfect Circle technician), have announced that their new album “Infinite Games“ will be available on September 28. The effort will be released through the band’s own label Federal Prisoner, and a teaser for it can be seen below:

Puciato said the following about the label:

“Federal Prisoner won’t function like a typical label. It’s an expression of passion and individualism in a way that opens more doors for us to create and to own what we create with minimal compromise. It’s as much an act of refusal as it is a statement of intent.

We won’t be working within the current industry blueprint of premieres, ‘instant grat tracks’ or any of that nonsense. We’re concentrating on the music, videography and packaging, an aural and visual experience. It’s exciting to create our own path.”

He also added the following about the album:

“There’s less uncertainty and more confidence. I’m speaking both about the artistic and business aspect of creating and releasing an album. As for what’s changed with Infinite Games, I think it feels more conceptual as an album.

It’s less a collection of songs and more about the front to back listen. Probably because it wasn’t compiled over a four-year span of time like the last one. This one is actually hookier but more insidious, it’s a more delicate record.”

“Infinite Games” Track Listing:

01. “Even Still I Want To”
02. “Thrown Into The Dark”
03. “No Accusations”
04. “Your Move”
05. “Lies About You”
06. “Impossible Condition”
07. “Spatial Boundaries”
08. “100 To Zero”
09. “Porcelain Veins”
10. “One Edge Of Two”

The Black Queen Premiere “Distanced” Music Video

The Black Queen, the electronic project featuring Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Killer Be Killed), Joshua Eustis (Telefon Tel Aviv) and Steven Alexander, have premiered a new video for the track, “Distanced.” This song is from their debut album, Fever Daydream, which will be released on January 29.

Puciato issued the following statement:

“The video came about from Steve showing me cloud tanks, which were what a guy named Douglas Trumbull used to make the cloud effects in ‘Close Encounters.’ The visuals produced with those carried such a perfect combination of beauty and implied dread. We wanted to lean on the lyrics a bit in this song, which are about longing and fixation, the burden of absence, and figured we could do that in a more creative way than a normal lyric video, so I got together with Jesse Draxler, who we’ve worked with on the artwork for the album and ‘The End Where We Start’ single, and collaborated with on the ‘Maybe We Should’ video, and we built a cloud tank one night and shot endless amounts of footage until about five in the morning.

We put the lyrics on heavy black poster board behind the tank, and then mailed them to people when we were done. The whole feel of this band has been so delicate and personal to us, and we’ve been so hands on with everything, so it’s nice to know that some people out there received a surprise piece of this video. That’s the part that was really gratifying. Knowing that like fifteen people would be like ‘what is this?’ and then see the video a day later. An element of human connection.”
