Oakland, Calif. queer punk juggernauts Middle-Aged Queers have announced that they have recruited Fureigh (The Homobiles, ex-The Shondes) as their new guitarist. The band, voted “Best of the Bay: Best Live Band” by the Bay Area Reporter, has also announced several spring tour dates.
The band writes: “After Ms. Rona canceled all our 2020 tour dates, we're stoked to finally hit the road and spread the queercore gospel to the poor lost lambs of the world. With the addition of our pal Fureigh (they/them) on guitar, we’ll be bringing all the hits — both of them! — as well as songs from our upcoming 'Shout at the Hetero' album (Say10 Records).”
Following the success of their recent all-ages show in Oakland, which hit capacity within five minutes of the opening band starting, and their recent sold-out show supporting GayC/DC at San Francisco’s Bottom of the Hill, Middle-Aged Queers will revive mosh pits and make dance floors slippery all the way down the California coast, then hop on a plane to do it across the border at Montreal's Pouzza Fest, with a quick stop in Burlington. All-ages shows comprise the majority of their spring tour dates.
Middle-Aged Queers recently released "Gary's Satanic Mills," a four-song picture disc EP available on their own OutPunx Records imprint. A video for the most recent single off the record, a cover of a song by the early ‘80s band the Middle Class, can be seen here.
