Atlanta-based punk rockers The Coathangers have released a brand new video for their single Captain’s Dead. We loved it so much we made it the Song of the Day.
The track starts at a slow simmer, with brooding bass play mixed with melodic harmonies, jagged guitar interplay, and a vibrating drum beat.
The video stars the Coathangers (Minnie Coathanger, Crook Kid Coathanger, and Rusty Coathanger) as killer ghouls with a crew of zombie cheerleaders. There’s also talking doll heads involved. Watch below.
Crook Kid aka Julia Kugel (guitar/vox) had this to say via Paste Magazine, “the video was once again shot by good friend and long time Coathangers collaborator Matt Odom in and around our house in Long Beach. It was so fun to make! The bad ass 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 the clip soaked in personal meaning. Feels a bit like a feverish nightmare… a hex on assholes. We had a good time!”
Captain’s Dead is from The Coathangers upcoming EP, Parasite which is out June 30th. Preorder the album and don’t miss them on tour in UK/Europe this May and June.
