The Coathangers have a new split out with The Numerators called Chicken 30. I wouldn’t expect anything less from the Coathangers than lots of blood and fun! That’s why I love this Record cover. You can pick it up from Suicide Squeeze here.
This record is limited to 500 copies (100 opaque red, sold out) & 400 (black). The Coathangers & The Numerators first got it together on the road in the summer of 2009: Atlanta’s favorite ladies were touring behind “Scramble,” while the Lubbock boys were kicking it in the sun, rocking their local haunts. Their quick fling of shared dates and stages turned out to be a productive one, culminating in this split single.
