With a huge European tour kicking off next week, including 10 UK dates, Atlanta punks The Coathangers have shared a new video for ‘Captain’s Dead’. Taken from the forthcoming ‘Parasite EP’, out Friday 30th June 2017 on Suicide Squeeze, the video for ‘Captain’s Dead’ combines the track’s sultry verses, triumphant chorus, and bombastic freak-out of noisy guitar with ghoulish visuals.

The song is about a very interesting and difficult time of personal transition that happened at the end of last year, which coincided with a changing political climate ushered in by the election of Donald Trump as president,” guitarist/vocalist Julia Kugel told Paste. “It was like the Trump ethos of savage ignorance was taking over every aspect of life, and then a realization that all things do circle and come back. The reward for malicious action is often a bag of shit, one way or another.

The video was shot by good friend and long-time Coathangers collaborator Matt Odom in and around our house in Long Beach. The badass cheerleaders were a play on the whole captain of the squad thing. We wanted this video to be a bit random and weird to the observer, yet it is soaked in personal meaning, and feels a bit like a feverish nightmare… a hex on assholes.”
