The Coathangers Live

Atlanta garage punks The Coathangers are releasing their first-ever live album, simply titled LIVE, on June 1st via Suicide Squeeze Records. It was recorded across two nights at Alex’s Bar in Long Beach last November, which were free shows “replete with magicians, tarot card readings, burlesque dancers, palm readers, and a giant paper mache rabbit for photo-ops.” It’s a career-spanning collection of songs, from their 2007 self-titled debut through 2017’s Parasite EP. “It’s like our anthology… our entire career in 38 minutes,” said guitarist/vocalist Julia Kugel. The show was recorded by Dylan Ely and front-of-house engineer Eric Huff, and Kugel’s husband Scott Montoya mixed it in their new home studio.

Along with the album’s release, The Coathangers are also putting out some live videos from those Alex’s Bar shows, and we’re premiering the one for “Hurricane” from 2011’s Larceny & Old Lace. “This song is based on a friend of ours from New Orleans who was similar to a lot of our friends, and us, at the time. Just full of crazy energy and strong, and sometimes dangerous in ways. Yet still empowering! It’s one of my favorite songs because it’s so creepy and sort of evil, yet still really fun to sing,” said drummer/vocalist Stephanie Luke.

The Coathangers recently wrapped up a run supporting their labelmates Minus the Bear’s Planet of Ice 10th anniversary,
