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, will release its debut album, "Fever Daydream", in late 2015. The CD 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," says Puciato. "Just being in this desolate environment of urban blight, completely self-contained, making this heavily emotional music together."

The video for THE BLACK QUEEN song "The End Where We Start" can be seen below. The digital single is available now via iTunes.

"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."

THE BLACK QUEEN produced the forthcoming album with Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83, THE NAKED AND FAMOUS) executive producing.
