The Coathangers are a punk group from Atlanta. In 2011, they released their third album, Larceny and Old Lace for Suicide Squeeze Records, to generally positive reviews. The band formed in 2006 as a joke. After playing a house show, they were asked to open for The Hiss on the strength of their performance. The name was chosen for its vulgarity, an irreverent take on abortions, though all band members are pro-choice. They have opened in New York City for the Black Lips.
Their playfulness continues into their songs, with titles such as "Don't Touch My Shit", "Nestle In My Boobies" and "Shut the Fuck Up." They released a 7" record on Atlanta's Die Slaughterhaus Records and their first full length self-titled on Rob's House Records.
After taking time to tour and putting out another 7" on Seattle based Suicide Squeeze Records, the Coathangers released their second full length Scramble in April 2009. In 2011, the band released Larceny & Old Lace.
In 2012, Julia of The Coathangers released a 7" record on Suicide Squeeze Records, under the name "White Woods".
In 2013, it appeared that the quartet had become a trio, with Bebe Coathanger (Candice Jones) noticeably absent from shows towards the later half of the year, or from their fourth album, Suck my Shirt.
