“From the outset they harmonize: “You can have it/ I don’t want that shit/ It’s just a bad memory of what I did.” Right then and there you know it’s one of those relationship anthems that’s going to make you happy in your singledom, or that you store on a breakup playlist if you’re as cynical as I am. ”  Stereogum

Atlanta all-girl punk band, The Coathangers will be releasing their 5th LP, Nosebleed Weekend on the 15th April on Suicide Squeeze Records.  Nosebleed Weekend retains all the devil-may-care magnetism and serrated instrumentation of their debut, but it flourishes with a decade’s worth of songwriting discipline and chemistry.

Nosebleed Weekend is the first album the band has made outside of Atlanta, and was recorded in North Hollywood at Valentine Recording studios with Nic Jodoin (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club).  “The Beach Boys and Bing Crosby both recorded there!” Kugel says excitedly (as did Frank Zappa!). Nosebleed Weekend was the first session at Valentine Recording Studios since 1979, when acclaimed producer Jimmy Valentine decided to suddenly shutter its doors without explanation.  He left everything intact, including the custom built MCI soundboard, vintage mics, and myriad priceless gear.   The studio was a virtual time capsule for more than thirty years, until Valentine passed away and his family inherited the building and its contents.  “It was an amazing experience, not to mention a ghostly one too. The studio had been custom built by Jimmy Valentine and he was very protective of his passion. It sounds weird, but his spirit was there, checking in on us and fucking with us a bit.”

The Coathangers are the trio Julia Kugel (guitar/vocal), Meredith Franco (bass/vocals) and Stephanie Luke (drums/vocals).

The band will be touring Europe next month and playing London on the 5th May.  They’ll be back later in the year for a more extensive tour of the UK.
