SKATERS Perform on Huw Stephens’ BBC Radio 1

| 14 June 2013 | Reply


June 13th, 2013 – Burbank, CA – NYC rockers SKATERS have been lighting up stages in New York City and across the U.K., where they have amassed a loyal following, for the last year. While in the London, SKATERS visited the prestigious Huw Stephens’ BBC Radio 1 program to perform three songs live in the studio – their WBR 7″ single debut “I Wanna Dance (But I Don’t Know How),” “Schemers” (the title track from the debut EP), and “Nice Hat.” The clips premiered today on the BBC website and are a terrific introduction to what this trio, whose smart, dynamic sound blends their disparate new wave and punk influences into their own modern indie hybrid, can do onstage.

SKATERS, which is Michael Ian Cummings, Noah Rubin, and Joshua Hubbard, recently kicked off a support tour with their Warner Music Group label-mates Portugal. The Man. They will make a triumphant return to their home base of New York City by headlining the Bowery Ballroom in Manhattan on July 19th. Tickets are on sale now.
