Oakland, Calif. queer punks Middle-Aged Queers have released their first new material of 2023, on the heels of their 2022 “Shout at the Hetero” album (Say-10 Records).

About the song: “We grew up on the heterocentric, decadent rock and roll ballads of the ’70s and ’80s. It only seemed fitting that we write a love song for us, by us.”

Featuring ex-members of the Cost (Lookout Records), Fang (Boner Records), the Insaints (Maximumrocknroll Records) and the Shondes (Exotic Fever Records), Middle-Aged Queers are a Bay Area “supergroup” of seasoned punks on a mission to make punk rock gay again. Over their four years of existence, they have taken their talked-about live show from coast to coast, including appearances at Gainesville’s Fest, Montreal’s Pouzza Fest, Punk Rock Bowling, and more. After recording the “Shout at the Hetero” album in 2021, the band recruited Fureigh (they/them pronouns, the Homobiles, ex-the Shondes) as their new guitarist. “Anal Beads” marks the first material from this new lineup of queerdos, whose festival appearances garnered rave reviews internationally throughout 2022.
