The Black Queen To Release Deluxe 5th Anniversary Edition Of “Fever Daydream”


The Black Queen, the synthwave-leaning outfit fronted by ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan frontman Greg Puciato, will soon be releasing a deluxe digital edition of their debut album, “Fever Daydream” in honor of its fifth anniversary. Vinyl and digital formats are planned with the deluxe digital version to arrive first on Bandcamp on February 05th, hitting other digital retailers/streamers on February 19th. Pre-orders for the vinyl edition are available now at this location.

Puciato recently spoke on revisiting the album and hinted at what’s next for the band, here’s what he had to say:

“In 20 years of making albums, there are a few that stand-out as being really special. They felt special when they were being made, and they still stand-out after the passing of time. If every album is a point on a timeline, these points are a little bigger than the rest. ‘Fever Daydream‘ is one of those points. We had no idea when we made it whether other people would connect to it in the way that we did, but it turns out that a decent amount of people did.

This was the gateway into a lot for me on the release-side too, the genesis of what would become Federal Prisoner, and the start of a real passion for releasing records, and for owning my output. Personally it was a really transitional time too, with a lot of growth happening, and I can hear all of that in this. We had a special bond as friends and musicians during the years that we spent making this, and a couple of my current closest relationships both personally and professionally were formed during this time.

So we, and I, are proud to re-issue this, in new packaging, with new variants, and some extra stuff on the digital side. Thanks everyone. We hope to see you at some shows before too long. Now back to the new record ;-).”

Among the extras planned for the deluxe digital edition are instrumental and vocal only versions of each track, as well as unspecified bonus recordings and demos.
