The Coathangers have shared a new video for "Hey Buddy," another track from their 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. 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.  

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!"
