The Black Queen, the ambient electronic music project from Greg Puciato (ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan, Killer Be Killed) Josh Eustis (Teflon Tel Aviv, Puscifer), and Steven Alexander have released a limited edition version of their classic album Fever Daydream on cassette. But slipped into the message ot fans on Bandcamp, was word of a new album coming in 2022. Rejoice!
The Black Queen’s debut album Fever Daydream (interview here) turned five years old last week and the band celebrated with a merch drop, including limited edition vinyl that immediately sold out. Now they have released a deluxe digital edition of the album expanded to 39 tracks with demos, alternate takes, and other gems.
Last Friday (1/29/21) I got to check out the live stream from Housecore bands Scour and Shock Narcotic. Both of these groups are “supergroups” but I’m not going to get into that right now. I will say though that the list of bands that make up the background for each band are some of my favorites so I was kinda excited for this show.

In a year of great tragedy and upheaval, where the word ‘unprecedented’ became a mantra spoken around the world, music has been a stabilising force for millions of us. It has been a consistent power for good at a time when many of us have struggled with unemployment, illness, and bereavement. Whether providing companionship during stretches of isolation, rallying us to fight for change when faced with corrupt political machinations, or even just handing us a convenient distraction from the horrors outside our window, never have I felt such a kinship with music and the people who dedicate their lives to the art.
Greg Puciato is a force of nature. You never know where his music is going to take you but you know it’s coming from a place of raw emotion.
