Atlanta punk trio THE COATHANGERS have announced plans for new EP and extensive UK tour in May and share stadium level “Captain’s Dead”, taken from their epic ‘Parasite EP’, which is due out on June 30th via Suicide Squeeze.

Guitarist/vocalist Julia Kugel explained the track, saying: “Easy come, easy go; what you reap is what you sow. Sometimes people that you trust fail you miserably by falling victim to their own ego. They start believing their own hype, fancy themselves a leader, but they lead nothing. It’s based on a personal experience, but this track has taken on a larger meaning given our current political weather. It’s feeling stormy – the ships made out of sh*t will sink themselves.”

Despite the adverse times, The Coathangers’ mastery of pop cannot be contained, as is evident in ‘Captain’s Dead’, with its sultry verses, triumphant chorus, and a bombastic freak-out of guitar riffage!

We can’t wait for the release of their new EP and in the meantime this tune has been getting plenty of attention.

More than worthy, ‘Captain’s Dead’ takes the T.O.T.W title!
