The Queers Release “Back to the Basement”

The Queers are back with a brand new studio album titled Back to the Basement. Recorded in Atlanta, this release offers up thirteen tracks of blistering punk rock. Joe Queer says, “Ben Weasel sequenced it, HogLog Rehab was on drums, Dangerous Dave on bass, and I was on guitar and mean vocals. We recorded it in about 23 hours from start to finish. That included writing a few songs in the vocal booth when we took a coffee break.”
 
Since 1982, the QUEERS have been paving the way for the RAMONES style pop punk bands across the globe. This new album will continue their legacy as one of the pioneers of this genre. 
Mike Park of Asian Man Records states, “Back to the Basement sounds like a follow up to Love Songs for the Retarded era QUEERS.”
 
 Joe says:
 
“Back to the Basement is the best album we’ve done since I was on speedballs many years ago. It has songs about titfucking and knowing GG Allin. It’s an instant classic, plus it’s kind of catchy in places. We broke out Black Flag Damaged and listened to that and TV Party and wrote this album. The cd version includes White Minority by Black Flag actually. Stuff that in your pipe and smoke it you hipster punks.”
