|Penguin Band chronology|
Q (initial for Quartet) is a mini-album by the Antarctican band, Penguin Band. It was surprise-released on March 24, 2015 with no prior promotion or announcement, by Club Penguin Music Records exclusively to iceTunes. It is one of the few albums in penguin musical history where an artist has taken the risk of surprise-releasing an album. The album was released in preparation for their bigger third album, Timeless, as well as satisfying the fans demands for more music. It is the first time that the band have released an album that wasn't released in the final quarter of the year.
The album was prepared and released in short-notice due to a number of leaked demos that were released on to the internet in early 2015. As a result the Band compiled the leaked songs and released them as a mini-album. Many of the songs were unfinished demos that were intended for their third studio album, Timeless (2015), intended for release later in the year. However the leaks resulted into a change of plans and thus, the formation of Q.
As per usual, Q entered at number 1 across all charts and was sold at a relatively cheap price due to its status as a mini-album, as well as treating the fans. It continues Penguin Band's record of having all their albums charting at number 1 in every existing Antarctican chart.
No singles were released prior or after the album release. However, Petey K did say that if they were to have chosen a single to release, it would have been "Penguin Style" and no more. It is important to note, however, that all songs managed to chart in numerous top 100 charts as they were purchased separately.
Ever since the Band's second album Cosmic (2014) there has been clear divisions between genres on the album. Out of the 8 tracks, three are country pop, three are pop rock and two are alternative.
- Country pop − "Penguin Style", "Nobody But Us", "Come Together"
- Alternative − "Magic", "Display"
- Pop rock − "Centre Stage", "Dojo", "Used to Be"
