Skaters to tour

New York melodic rock band SKATERShave announced their first tour in support of their debut Warner Bros. Records single, "I Wanna Dance (But I Don't Know How)" b/w "Armed", set for release on April 9th. Click here to listen and post "I Wanna Dance (But I Don't Know How)".

As the story goes, Michael Ian Cummings and Noah Rubin formed SKATERS in 2012, and spent a year trading demos between Los Angeles and London with guitarist Joshua Hubbard. A few months later, the three met up in a Chinatown (NYC) loft to created their own art zine, YONKS, and record their debut EP, Schemers, which was given away for free on the band's website and drew immediate critical praise:
