Some unfortunate news coming from The Queers‘ camp tonight… The legendary pop-punk band got in an accident and totaled their tour van on the way to Indianapolis, Indiana, for the first show on their North American tour with The Dwarves. But don’t worry! The guys are all okay and they plan to carry on with the tour in a rented van. Here’s a message the band’s tour manager posted on their Facebook page:
“Our apologies to the fans in Indianapolis, IN tonight. On the way to the show the band was in an accident on I-65 just north of Nashville. The van is totaled but everyone is OK. Again, everyone is OK. The band has rented a vehicle and collected their gear and will start the tour tomorrow in Madison, WI at High Noon Saloon. Indianapolis, we will make it up to you somehow.
Joe Queer is a trooper. Not once did he talk about canceling this tour and we tried very hard to make it to Indy but there just wasn’t enough time in the day.
The Dwarves are still playing in Indy tonight. Don’t miss it. Other than that, don’t start rumors– this tour is happening. Queers and Dwarves… incredible!”
The Queers last released “Back To The Basement” in 2010 through Asian Man Records. Since then, they have put out multiple re-releases of prior albums, including limited edition vinyl reissues of “Don’t Back Down”, “Move Back Home”, “A Day Late and a Dollar Short”, and “Later Days and Better Lays”.
