On December 4, Suicide Squeeze is releasing a deluxe reissue of the Coathangers’ 2006, self-titled debut full-length. The album was remastered by Scott Montoya of Soft Palms and the Growlers, and features two bonus tracks, “Never Wanted You,” which first appeared on a 2007 single, and “Wife Eyes” which was the b-side on 2010’s Hard Candy 7-inch (both released via Die Slaughterhaus Records).
The album was originally released by the Atlanta-based Rob’s House Records and features cover art by Bradford Cox of Deerhunter. “Wife Eyes” captures the Coathangers‘ original lineup of singer and guitar player Julia Kugel, bass player Meredith Franco, drummer Stephanie Luke, and keyboard player Candice Jones’ primal blend of vampy garage-punk and ramshackle angularity.
For the vinyl hounds, the record is being pressed on “confetti crush splatter,” “neon strawberry banana pinwheel,” and “wreckless” (blue-green) colored vinyl editions—500 copies each.
In the meantime, press play on “Wife Eyes.”
