THE COATHANGERS ANNOUNCE US TOUR DATES ‘SCRAMBLE’ OUT ON SUICIDE SQUEEZE APRIL 7TH
Atlanta’s The Coathangers have a handful of live dates lined up prior to the April 7th release of Scramble on Suicide Squeeze. Dates include a February residency at Star Bar in Atlanta and several shows opening for These Arms Are Snakes before making a stop at SXSW.
In less than three years, The Coathangers, Julia Kugel (guitar/vocals), Stephanie Luke (drums/vocals), Candice Jones (keyboard/vocals), and Meredith Franco (bass/vocals) have grown from a band of girlfriends buying the cheapest instruments an Atlanta pawn shop could offer, to a group of formidable, adaptable performers. The quartet has shared the stage or toured with bands such as Deerhunter, Atlas Sound, Jay Reatard, The Strange Boys , The Black Lips and The Vivian Girls among others.
Here is the group as a group, an unbreakable unit – the chemistry and magic of all component parts interacting – all the girls or none.
You could look at them and think they’re this way or that, but they will not conform. These are four really different people who have bonded beyond the point of just being friends. You might think you can pin them down, but they don’t care. Their fashion isn’t contrived, their music feels like music for music’s sake because that’s exactly what it is natural, voluntary, spontaneous, impulsive, intuitive and entirely better for it.
