The Black Coats

The Black Coats


A mix of the White Stripes and The Clash plus echo/delay rock. We love transforming the stage into something raw and beautiful. We believe good songs aren't a thing of the past. We believe good records should be made once again.


The sound and music of The Black Coats
can be defined as a mix of punk alt/rock,
rhythmic synth reggae, and a vintage strand
of pop laced with harmonies and warm keys.
Their latest effort Cry Mary Cry features soulful
Danzig like shouts in 'I Don't Care', time
signature play on the smash-up 'RockNRoll',
and echo/delay drenched ska in the self titled
track 'Cry Mary Cry'.

With only two young years under their belt, the
guys (and lady) have been keeping busy by playing
countless shows followed by a good diet of writing
and recording. The Black Coats have opened for
numerous national touring acts in Milwaukee,
enjoyed constant radio air-play, and have been
featured in select articles in the mid-west region.
