News: Middle-Aged Queers Share Single “Home Is Where

Middle-Aged Queers have released a cover of “Home Is Where,” originally by seminal hardcore act Middle Class.

The cover initially appeared on the Oakland-based queercore band’s recent picture disc EP Gary’s Satanic Mills.

“This song was originally a commentary on the monoculture of American suburbs but took on additional meaning for us during the pandemic,” says lead vocalist Shaun Osburn. “The chorus of ‘Home is where we hide’ became a suggested method of survival that was only afforded to some, while others are martyred as ‘essential workers’ or ‘health heroes.’”

Gary’s Satanic Mills is available via the band’s own Outpunx Records. Proceeds from the release benefit Rogers & Rosewater, a direct action program providing hot meals to homeless Oaklanders.
