SKATERS Announce Spring Tour
Tue, 19 Feb 2013 12:53:32
New York rockers SKATERS have announced their first tour in support of their debut Warner Bros. Records single, "I Wanna Dance (But I Don't Know How)" b/w "Armed," set for release on April 9.
As the story goes, Michael Ian Cummings and Noah Rubin formed Skaters in 2012, and spent a year trading demos between Los Angeles and London with guitarist Joshua Hubbard. A few months later, the three met up in a Chinatown (NYC) loft to create their own art zine, Yonks, and record their debut EP.
Catch 'em now before they blow the hell up. Remember, you heard about 'em at ARTISTdirect.com first.
Listen to the single below. It's very noisy, New York indie, sorta like The Strokes, if they went to boarding schools in Manchester and spent their late teens raising hell on 1st and A.
