LOS ANGELES (Rolling Stone)  – The Black Queen, the Los Angeles-based trio featuring Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan), Josh Eustis (Telefon Tel Aviv, Nine Inch Nails) and Steven Alexander, preview the video for their new single, “The End Where We Start”, from their upcoming debut album, Fever Daydream.

“There’s a really visual soundtrack element to the music,” Puciato says of The Black Queen’s music.  “We talked a lot about the feel of ‘80s sci-fi, the sort of ‘used future’ thing where it sounds alien but also familiar and gives you nostalgia for a time you don’t remember ever existing.  Stanley Kubrick was a big influence as well.”

Fever Daydream, which is slated for a late 2015 release, was written and recorded while the band cocooned in a Skid Row-adjacent, downtown Los Angeles loft. “That played a big part in the sound too,” continues Puciato. “Just being in this desolate environment of urban blight, completely self-contained, making this heavily emotional music together.”

The Black Queen produced the forthcoming album with Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83, The Naked and Famous) executive producing.

The single, “The End Where We Start” is also available for digital download through iTunes.
