Music Video: The Black Queen, “Thrown Into The Dark”

In the mood for something completely different?

Greg Puciato (ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan), Steven Alexander Ryan (Nine Inch Nails/A Perfect Circle technician), and Josh Eustis (Telefon Tel Aviv) have joined forces to become The Black Queen. Given the pedigree of this trio, you will be surprised to discover an electronica project miles away from the band’s heavier roots.

The Black Queen will release Infinite Games on September 28. According to their press release:

Infinite Games follows a host of emotional moments for the band members, from Puciato’s Polish bus accident, the demise of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Eustis’ return to Telefon Tel Aviv, and a robbery of the trio’s storage space. “This time, we learned how to do everything ourselves,” explains Puciato, discussing what’s changed since the band’s debut, Fever Daydream. “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.”
