The new Coathangers is shaping up to be one of their best and most biting. With the latest single from the album, the band touches on the current national epidemic of gun violence in the most direct way possible – with a middle finger to the very lobby that props the system despite an avalanche of evidence that our cultural hangup on weaponry is a tipping point in need of legislation. The band knocks this out with an ’80s punk spirit, looking every bit the resurrection of Bad Brains/D.O.A./Circle Jerks inflammatory imagery scrawled over a cut n’ paste collection of cartoonish gunslinger tropes. In the wake of the SOTU, if you’re in the need for another wave to fan the flame of action, let this one waft over you today.
