BIO:

 

Since their forming just two short years ago, SKATERS have build a solid reputation of a youthful, creative, energetic guitar-laden post-punk rock band. After signing to WB Records within their first year of existence, their DIY spirit and catchy songs have propelled them around the world, performing at various international festivals including Reading & Leeds, Best Kept Secret, Splendour in the Grass, BBK, Rock en Seine, Oya, Hurricane/Southside and others as well as Lollapalooza in the U.S. 

They released their debut album "Manhattan" in the Spring of 2015. After relentless touring, critical acclaim and impressive radio momentum both in the U.S., UK and Australia, the band parted ways with WB Records at the end of 2015.  It was an inspiring time for the band. With their reclaimed freedom, they dug in and started writing in their NYC studio. 50 songs later they surfaced, ready to embark on their sophomore album effort. 

They poured their own money into the process, booked Rumpus Room Record Studios in Brooklyn, NY for 6 weeks and are currently underway recording the album. The songs have a new found depth, a new attitude, and diversity that was alive in spirit on Manhattan, but now with additional instrumentation and more evolved arrangements, is poised to shape SKATERS as a very different band with a very different perspective. Hundreds of shows and a major label deal later, SKATERS are alive and well and eager to enter Phase 2.
