The Black Queen’s debut, 'Fever Daydream', was one of the unexpected highlights of 2016. Nobody expected the vocalist of Dillinger Escape Plan, the mastermind behind Telefon Tel Aviv and their friend Steven Alexander to turn in a sultry, danceable and engrossing electronic record bursting with floor fillers. But they did. Now in 2018, the band return with their latest offering 'Infinite Games' and much like their debut, this record deserves your attention.
It isn’t easy to translate music as lush and as intricate as that of The Contortionist live. It’s even more difficult to make it feel as immersive and effortless as they do. Joined by Palm Reader, we took a trip down to their show in Glasgow earlier this month - check out our review and photo gallery!
If the rest of Trivium’s career is made up of shows like this and albums like The Sin and the Sentence, they won’t go down as that band who followed the leaders; they’ll go down as leaders on their own terms.
For years now Trivium have been proudly supporting bands they love, vocalising their support on stage, through interviews and on their shirts. Your first loves always inform your future loves, and the best gateway should bands do the same. Their current tour package of Code Orange, Power Trip and Venom Prison is just the latest example of Trivium’s desire to share great music with their fans. Not only that though, it’s a bold statement of confidence from a band so deep into their career that they would risk bringing bands on the brink of their peak to open for them without fear.
