 "Covering "Sex Beat" by the Gun Club is a bold move-it's a beloved song from a beloved band, one that's burrowed into the collective memory in a way that would intimidate most. But if there is a brick wall of expectations to greet anyone who would dare to take it on, The Coathangers crash right through it." - Vogue

Back in 2009, Suicide Squeeze Records labelmates These Arms Are Snakes and The Coathangers teamed up for a series of tour dates on the East Coast. It was a perfect pairing: The Coathangers' jagged catabolic garage rock and These Arms Are Snakes bleary and blighted artcore made for an evening of celebratory chaos. But These Arms Are Snakes' seven-year run came to an abrupt end a few months later, leaving a final unfinished recording-a cover of Lost Sounds' "Energy Drink & The Long Walk Home"-gathering dust in the vaults. In the five years since the Snakes' dissolution, The Coathangers have toured relentlessly on their three albums for Suicide Squeeze; releasing a slew of split 7"s with various road comrades along the way. Though These Arms Are Snakes remain broken up, the finishing touches on "Energy Drink" were finally wrapped up in 2014, and it seemed only appropriate to pair the song with a track from their old tourmates.

The Coathangers are still hard at work touring on their highly lauded album from earlier this year, Suck My Shirt, but they found the time to counterbalance the Snakes' Lost Sounds cover with their take on The Gun Club's "Sex Beat". Suicide Squeeze is proud to release the split single worldwide on a limited vinyl run of 1,000 (clear w/ red and black splatter) 7"s with an accompanying download code.

In case you missed it: last week The Coathangers hit us with their new video "Drive" which features footage from their adventures in Mexico, California, Switzerland, Spain, France and more via the band's GoPro cams.  They're touring Europe now - check a full list of dates below!

The Coathangers are:

Julia Kugel (Crook Kid Coathanger - guitarist)

Meredith Franco (Minnie Coathanger - bassist)

Stephanie Luke (Rusty Coathanger - drums)
