The Black Queen have shared their video for Thrown Into The Dark. You can check out the clip below via YouTube. The band members said the following of the song and video – “This is a song, we made a video,” explains Greg Puciato (ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan). Steven Alexander Ryan (Nine Inch Nails/A Perfect Circle technician) adds, “We like it.” The Black Queen is rounded out by Josh Eustis (Telefon Tel Aviv).

Thrown Into The Dark comes out as the band prepares for the  release of ‘Infinite Games’ on September 28, as well as a trio of US dates before venturing to Europe for a month-long tour. Full list of dates is below. “I think right now, the whole industrial, noise, electronic, ambient scene in L.A. is second only to Berlin,” Puciato said in a recent interview with Alternative Press about The Black Queen’s appeal to industrial music fans. “The majority of my friend circle is in that scene. The other night I saw Drew McDowall of Coil play a noise set in a church at midnight. There were three cool things happening [in the city] that night. It’s a pretty exciting time for this scene to be out here.”

‘Infinite Games’ follows a bunch 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.”
