The Coathangers

Atlanta, GA's The Coathangers are set to release their new LP, Larceny & Old Lace tomorrow (6/7) via Suicide Squeeze Records.

The Coathangers reckless energy from their half-serious roots is every bit as vibrant and rambunctious on their latest album, Larceny & Old Lace. But this time around we're hearing a band that's honed their trade and incorporated more stylistic variations. It's also the band's first experience in a proper studio; the album was recorded with Ed Rawls at The Living Room in Atlanta, Georgia. The result is a record that feels like The Coathangers we've always known and loved, but sounds like a band taking their trade more seriously. Where their past recordings were a mash-up of garage rock's rough and loose instrumentation and no-wave's abrasive tonalities, Larceny & Old Lace showcases a broader song-writing range. With their refinement of technique, and Ed Rawls' production allowing every instrument to shine without detracting from the band's natural grit, The Coathangers' latest offering is easily their best record to date.

They'll make their way to Chicago for a June 29th performance at Panchos. Tickets will be available shortly, here.
