Stream: The Coathangers share the bombastic punk pop of “Captain’s Dead”

Captain's DeadAtlanta punk trio The Coathangers have announced details of an extensive UK tour running throughout May. Ahead of their trip, they've shared "Captain's Dead", taken from their upcoming EP Parasite.

"Captain's Dead" shows off The Coathangers' masterful grasp of punk-pop, with its sultry verses, triumphant chorus and a bombastic freakout of noisy guitar.

Guitarist and vocalist Julia Kugel explains the track as such: "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 shit will sink themselves."

The Coathangers first stormed onto the music scene over a decade ago, with their charm residing in the endearingly shambolic nature of their songs. Since then, though, each successive album has increasingly tempered that brash and sharp-witted pop.

Parasite continues that process, finding a happy medium between The Coathangers' unbridled expression and their current grasp of nuanced song writing.

May - 12th @ Night & Day, Manchester // 13th @ The Joker, Brighton // 15th @ The Exchange, Bristol // 16th @ The Bullingdon, Oxford // 17th @ Oslo, London // 18th @ The Printworks, Hastings // 19th @ The Cookie, Leicester // 20th @ Gold Sounds, Brudenell Social, Leeds // 21st @ The Harley, Sheffield // 23rd @ Music Hall, Ramsgate
