The Coathangers Announce tour with Black Lips

The Coathangers tour with Black Lips, announce new album 'Suck My Shirt' on Suicide Squeeze Records. The Coathangers start their tour January 25 in Atlanta.

Atlanta’s ruling garage rock daughters, The Coathangers, strike back with their fourth full-length album, Suck My Shirt, which drops March 18th on Suicide Squeeze Records. The band retains the alluring spontaneity and happy accidents of their early releases, but this time the (now) trio push sounds far more deliberate and locked-in than anything they’ve done in the past. Spikey, jarring guitar riffs, raspy vocals and solid melodic hooks are still apparent on their sophisticated side which sounds less like a jubilant version of Huggy Bear and more like the art-pop of late-era Minutemen. Soon the ladies take their  unruly live show across North America with The Black Lips – making stops at this year’s SXSW, Burgerama and Spillover Fests.

The Coathangers were a band before they were musicians. The trio started out as an excuse to hang out, play parties and weren’t going to let the fact that none of them knew how to play any instruments get in the way of having a good time. The backstory certainly added to the charm of early songs that resided somewhere between no-wave’s caustic stabs of dissonance and garage rock’s primal minimalism. In the seven years since their formation, The Coathangers have released a slew of records and toured across North America and Europe countless times.

The Coathangers are:

Julia Kugel (Crook Kid Coathanger – guitarist)

Meredith Franco (Minnie Coathanger – bassist)

Stephanie Luke (Rusty Coathanger – drums)
