The Coathangers bang out another full North American tour this spring – bringing their infectious sass and unruly live performance to this year’s SXSW, Spillover, Burgerama Fests and legs with The Black Lips and Audacity.  A bit ago we got a taste of their upcoming, fourth full-length album, Suck My Shirt (out March 18th on Suicide Squeeze Records), from Pitchfork who premiered “Follow Me” claiming that “Their vicious post-punk attack is as biting as ever…”

This time around, 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.

 

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 time.

 

The Coathangers are:

Julia Kugel (Crook Kid Coathanger – guitarist)

Meredith Franco (Minnie Coathanger – bassist)

Stephanie Luke (Rusty Coathanger – drums)
