Since SXSW (incl. an appearance at our B3 party), NYC based SKATERS have been touring non-stop behind their recent “I Wanna Dance” single. They’ve supported Potugal. the Man and even headlined a 30 dates in one month tour of the UK. We recently caught up on the phone with SKATERS frontman and lead singer Michael Ian Cummings to talk about the band’s forthcoming debut album, this summer’s Lollapalooza slot, their limited edition art-zine Yonks, as well as their forthcoming US tour opening for Palma Violets and more (tour dates listed below).

The band is celebrating an NYC homecoming this Friday (7/19) with a special headlining gig at The Bowery Ballroom. Get info and tickets for the show HERE.
