The Black Queen, the alternative/electronic outfit featuring Greg Puciato (Dillinger Escape Plan), Josh Eustis (Telefon Tel Aviv/Puscifer) and Steven Alexander Ryan (Nine Inch Nails/A Perfect Circle technician), debut the video for “Your Move” via Consequence of Sound here.

“‘Your Move’ was one of the fastest songs to be written,” says Puciato. “The demo and lyrics for this song were completed on the flight back from India after playing there with Dillinger. We finished it in a few days a week or so later, sometime in December of last year. Lyrically it just touches on the intoxication of sharing intimacy with someone guarded while also knowing that it’s unsustainable, but wanting it not to be. The line your move’ is a reference to the inevitable stalemate/playing chicken game that two people with vulnerability/permanence issues face after their initial phase reaches its limitation. Steve and I collaborated on the video.”

Puciato discussed the making of Infinite Games, as well as the band members’ decision to create their own creative outlet, Federal Prisoner, in a recent episode of The Vinyl Guide here. Links to stream and purchase Infinite Games can be found via the band’s website here.
