The Coathangers to play Pro Fans showcase at Rickshaw Stop with White Fang and Twin Steps

The Coathangers came rumbling from Atlanta, born from the notion that starting a band is first about having fun, and then about playing an  instrument. Naturally, their fourth studio album, Suck My Shirt, (out via Suicide Squeeze) follows suit—the name comes from an instant when tequila spilled on one of the band members' shirts, and well, you can figure out the rest. So far, the new album has caught the ear of Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and more, and with good reason—their sound is infectiously low-maintenance, with ample amounts of raspy vocals and brassy hooks grinding against grungy guitar lines. It's boisterous and rowdy, obviously, but [...]

Review & Photos: Black Lips provide riotous night of rock and roll at Great American

Photo by: Tim Draut If you managed to escape the Great American Music Hall last night without getting hit in the face by a beer, a shoe, an elbow, or a drink tray, you probably fucked up. The rowdy double bill of Atlanta hotheads Black Lips and The Coathangers proved to be a stomping ground for first-time stage divers, and a Monday night to be remembered (or perhaps forgotten, depending on how many beers you had). The Coathangers are easily one of the most energetic live acts to be fired out of the Burger Records cannon as of late, with [...]

The Coathangers join Black Lips at Great American

On your floor. Under your bed. In your closet. All places you’d expect to find coathangers, and that you might expect, after a long night, to find The Coathangers. The Coathangers, riding on this week’s release of their fourth LP, Suck My Shirt, will be spending the night in San Francisco next Monday. Oozing with a gleeful grit, The Coathangers sound like sticky floors, surly bartenders, and spitfire attitude. Suck My Shirt by The Coathangers With the band fresh off a stint at SXSW, the San Francisco date comes as part of a spring tour with fellow Atlantans Black Lips. [...]

Review & Photos: Guitar Wolf, The Coathangers @ Bottom of the Hill, 10/12/13

According to the CDC, 13% of US boys and 6% of US girls have been diagnosed with ADHD (and over 80% of the world's ADHD prescriptions are written here). As fucked as that is, it is comforting to know that 100% of The Coathangers indulge in "Adderall." The song was just released this month as a split 7" with Audacity. The mood is as it should be--disorganized but forcibly attentive. Initially disappointed at the lack of keyboards, the stripped-down three-piece, quickly regained my complete dedication. Driving around with The Coathangers' 2009 Scramble cassette blasting, people invariably look at me like [...]

Heavy Cream – the Nashville-based outfit whose debut LP Super Treatment was produced by Ty Segall and released on Infinity Cat Recordings, the label run by Jake and Jamin Orrall of JEFF The Brotherhood – dropped a new split 7-inch single with Atlanta quartet The Coathangers on Suicide Squeeze Records yesterday. Their contribution "Toasted" is two minutes of sludgy, fuzzy fury and recently premiered on Nylon. Check it out: The split 7-inch is limited to a run of 750 copies, and the online pre-sale sold out already, so you'll need to head out to your local record shop to get [...]
