Holy crap! It’s amazing that The Queers have been around for 25 years. Back 1982, Joe King (aka Joe Queer) and the original lineup recorded their first 7” called “Love Me”. Who would have thought that their signature brand of pop-punk surf rock would stand the test of time? 25 years! Damn!

This year The Queers are commemorating their achievements in a number of ways: their first ever DVD, a brand new CD, and a shit load of touring.

DVD: The Queers - The Queers Are Here (MVD Visual - www.mvdb2b.com - OUT NOW!)

Featuring world tours from '93 to '05, interviews, music videos and an unreleased animated video on their 1st DVD! It includes footage of all the live energy and behind-the-scenes craziness of the Queers on tour around the world. Also included are interviews, music videos, and an unreleased animated video. "Its been almost 25 years since the first 7” was released, so we figured it was time for a DVD. Besides being able to play with so many great bands, it has been awesome to make friends all over the world from Japan to Brazil to Europe and beyond." -Joe Queer
