Middle-Aged Queers - "Satanic Mills"

We've been fans of queercore supergroup Middle-Aged Queers for a while now. The Oakland, CA band features members of such groups as Fang, Bread and Circuits, The Shudders, and more. While still being punk, their latest single goes off in a new sonic direction. "Satanic Mills" has a very 80's feel to it, however not really an 80's hardcore sound. Instead (and get ready for this description) it sounds more like 80's thrash metal mixed with some Fugazi style punk. Yeah, you read that correctly and I somehow typed that. It's a shockingly great mix that you're gonna love. Somehow.

Frontqueer Shaun Osburn says of the new song:

“‘Satanic Mills’ was written in April of 2020, inspired by the cancellation of our tours due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We were supposed to be spreading our queercore gospel to the masses instead of working day jobs in the midst of the apocalypse.”

You can watch the video for "Satanic Mills" below. The song will be available as a 7" picture disc on the band's own label Outpunx Records. You can pre-order a copy here. It will also appear on the upcoming album Shout at the Hetero due out in 2022 on Say-10 Records.
