Given The Coathangers and Black Lips prolific output of 7″ singles and split EPs, it seems crazy that it’s taken nearly a decade of coexistence and mutual admiration for Atlanta’s two favorite troublemakers to team up on a slab of vinyl. The stars have finally aligned and the result is a fleeting, glorious cosmic event.
The Coathangers once again remind us why they’re our favorite heirs to The Raincoats’ throne with their indignant anthem “Watch Your Back”. The split is limited to 1000 copies (download cards included) and comes out November 13th courtesy of Suicide Squeeze Records.

The Coathangers have been road-dogging it since their latest and greatest record which garnered critical acclaim from Pitchfork, Nylon, Vogue, Rolling Stone and more. After touring the world, Australia, Europe, few and far between – they’ve hit the studio with Nic Jodoin (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Desert Noises) to work on the next record which will see its release in 2016.
