Founded in 2019 by ex-members of The Cost (Lookout Records), Fang (Boner Records), and the Insaints (MaximumRockNRoll Records), Middle-Aged Queers are a Bay Area “supergroup” of Jurassic Punks on a mission to make punk rock gay again. They have shared the stage with Agent Orange, the Avengers, The Code, GayC/DC, Guttermouth, Man on Man, MDC, the Pathogens, and the Longshot. They were voted Best Live Band in the Bay Area Reporter’s 2020 “Best of the Bay” awards.
Written and recorded during the lockdown phase of the pandemic, Middle-Aged Queers’ sophomore album “Shout at the Hetero” takes a much darker turn than their debut release. With themes covering gentrification, homelessness, TERFs, and QAnon, “Shout at the Hetero” will take you on a roller-coaster through a rainbow in the dark.
Like their debut album, Middle-Aged Queers bootstrapped their second LP, “Shout at the Hetero” by recording it in under 8 hours for less than $500. Limited edition vinyl variants will be available on Say-10 Records, Sell the Heart Records and their own Outpunx Records.
Vocalist Shaun Osburn says “COVID canceled tours, day jobs, side hustles, and housing, and the members of Middle-Aged Queers were no exception. This album captures our cathartic release during an uncertain time.”
“Shout at the Hetero” is out digitally today.
