A year after signing with major label Warner Bros. and gaining popularity with the single “I Wanna Dance (But I Don’t Know How), SKATERS released their debut album, Manhattan, on February 25.
The members of the New York based band started out as bartenders in New York City with big dreams of forming a band and selling out shows. Once Michael Ian Cummings formed the band with Josh Hubbard and Noah Rubin, they became unstoppable.
SKATERS are currently on tour promoting their new album and will be making a stop at the Rock and Roll Hotel in DC on Thursday, April 3, and we’re giving away a pair of tickets—and the debut LP—to one winner!
SKATERS are rapidly gaining recognition with the release of Manhattan, an 11-song ode to their lives in New York City with catchy tunes. Their album shares the stories of the city where they met—tales of partying, getting drunk and stoned, and being young in NYC.
As Cummings described the album, “It’s like short stories. It’s Salinger’s Nine Stories, but it’s Eleven Stories by SKATERS. And the writing is much worse.”
To win the tickets to see SKATERS at the Rock and Roll Hotel on Thursday, April 3rd AND the record, leave a comment with your favorite film set in New York City. Mine would have to be Annie Hall.
The winner will be chosen on Monday, March 31. Tickets are still available for purchase.
