Weekend Recall | The Coathangers
Going on 12 years of touring and creating several EPs and LPs, underground rock trio The Coathangers took a pause to focus on their latest masterpiece The Devil You Know, their new 11 song album due out March 8 on Suicide Squeeze Records. The band utilizes each member’s own style of songwriting (guitarist/vocalist Julia Kugel excelled at the melodic pop songs, drummer/vocalist Stephanie Luke belted out the gritty rock tunes, bassist/vocalist Meredith Franco drove the post-punk and no-wave angles of the band), the trio became determined to meld their established sound. The result of this newfound discipline, depth, and dimension is the first Coathangers record written as a true unit, as each member learned how to imbue their bandmates’ songs with their own personal touch. Now back on tour we asked the band to take us through a day in their lives with their weekend recall.
