The Coathangers share new video "Hey Buddy" and announce New Year's Eve shows

The Coathangers have just shared a new video for "Hey Buddy," a standout track from their acclaimed recent full length The Devil You Know. The video lands ahead of their impending southern US tour with Control Top and their just announced pair of New Year's Eve shows in Atlanta (full dates and details below). The video was shot in sunny Long Beach, CA and features the local skate crew Puff Tuff Babes, lead by local DJ and scene supporter Jeannette McDiarmid aka DJ Polyester.  

WATCH THE VIDEO FOR "HEY BUDDY"

State the band, "'Hey Buddy' deals with oppression and judgement, and the self awareness needed to question one's own fears and prejudices. Since the song touches on all sorts of street harassment, it felt right to feature bad-ass ladies on wheels that use their passion for skating to shake up the power dynamics of street interaction. There is a confidence and grit that comes with any kind of street skating, and it felt like the perfect union of words in action. It's about being free and using your art- be it music or skating or whatever- to express your frustrations, ideas, and desires. Having a crew and supporting each other is the only way we can deal with the socio-political issues we are all facing right now. We're all in this together so let's support one another!" 
 

The "Hey Buddy" video was shot by Big Walrus Productions and directed by Bradley Walther and Jason Lazo. It was filmed on location at COMA Studios and Alex's Bar during Happy Sundays Fest put on by Julia and her husband Scott Montoya.

"Simply put, the Coathangers have established themselves as masters of the punk tradition; they sound tight without sacrificing ferocity, and they wield a raw power that carries through to their records." - BUST
 
"Sixth studio album The Devil You Know is a collection of glorious cassette-tape jams with unfussy production, tight melodies, and precise vocal harmonies. It fits together as easily as a toddler's jigsaw puzzle." - PITCHFORK
 
"The Devil You Know masterfully walks the line between politically charged while remaining , perhaps tragically, timeless. But it's also an immensely listenable album, a fully realized emerging of the band's true power in crafting edgy, electric songs." - PASTE
