The Coathangers Shine a Light on "Stranger Danger" in New Video

The Coathangers  have released an ominous new video for their song “Stranger Danger” from their latest album The Devil You Know.

Vocalist and drummer Stephanie Luke said of the cautionary track and its visual accompaniment:

“Stranger Danger” is a song about avoiding the negative people in one’s life, like when your mother used to tell you “stranger danger!” so you wouldn’t go off with the bad guys. The video is dark with flashes of light (actual flashlights) to invoke that feeling of the unknown. Then we have our ever so good sport of a friend [and album artwork artist/frequent collaborator] Scott Montoya, whom we’ve kidnapped and continue to “terrorize” throughout the video, so we in fact have become the dangerous strangers.

Keep close watch on the new video for “Stranger Danger” (dir. Matt Odom) below and through the video embedded below that, stay alert for The Coathangers’ performance live in the Paste Studio beginning at 12:30 ET.
