Oakland, CA queercore band Middle-Aged Queers have released a cover of “Home is Where” by The Middle Class as their latest single. The track appears on the band’s recently released picture disc EP, Gary’s Satanic Mills, via the band’s own label Outpunx Records and the return release from the seminal Bay Area label Wingnut Records. All proceeds from the EP benefit Rogers & Rosewater, a direct action program providing hot meals to homeless Oaklanders. Middle-Aged Queers further extrapolates on this cover with the song’s music video that was animated by EJ Snyder.

“This song was originally a commentary on the monoculture of American suburbs but took on additional meaning for us during the pandemic. 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.'” (lead vocalist Shaun Osburn)

Middle-Aged Queers will be playing the Year Of The Fistmas benefit with Year Of The Fist and Easy Queen at Albany, CA’s Ivy Room tonight from 8pm. The Gary’s Satanic Mills EP is now available via Bandcamp and you can stream Home Is Where via digital platforms here
