Remember SKATERS? Maybe this will refresh your memory (http://anonmagazine.com/indie-radar-skaters/). Well, THEY’RE BACK and are now offering us the chance to get on the interview train this week. Their single, “Miss Teen Massachusetts” won’t be educating you on world peace this year. Oh, no. SKATERS’ newest track off of their album Manhattan has Rolling Stone saying,

“Hubbard provides layered guitar chords that are more waves of sound than riffs, adding to the video’s feeling of isolation. Meanwhile, Cummings’ detached voice adds another element of frost, further referencing the band’s post-punk influences.”

SKATERS

SKATERS, who signed to WBR in early 2013, is a dynamic New York City band on the cusp of releasing their highly anticipated debut on February 25th. The band garnered early attention for their energetic live shows, original EP (the lead track of which is featured on Manhattan), and involvement in the NYC creative community, including DIY publication of the popular art zine YONKS. They have been championed by publications like VICE, Blackbook, Paste, MTV, and Filter, as well as BBC internationally.

In celebration of their album release, SKATERS will be playing a very special record-release show at Bowery Ballroom in New York City on February 24th, the eve of their debut. Then the band will be hitting the road for a handful of shows in the UK.
