Last month, The Coathangers debuted a boisterous number called “Parasite”. Turns out the song is off a new EP of the same name, due out June 30th via Suicide Squeeze.

Spanning five tracks, the upcoming release was written in the wake of the election, emotions running at an ultra high level — a stark contrast to the sessions for their 2016 LP, Nosebleed Weekend. “During the making of our last album, I didn’t want to scream anymore, I just wanted to sing and focus on melody,” the band’s Julia Kugel says in a press release. “When we came to this recording, I just wanted to scream and curse.”

Along with the EP announcement, the Atlanta punk rockers have broken off another cut with “Captain’s Dead”. Come for the melodic chorus, stay for the wicked, wiry guitar solo at the 1:56 mark. Stream it down below.
