Post-punk band SKATERS have gone DIY. They recently left Warner Bros, struck out on their own, and emerged from the studio with more than sixty new tracks. “There was a true sense of freedom knowing that the record couldn’t be rejected,” says SKATERS frontman Michael Ian Cummings in a recent interview.
The band’s latest single, ‘Head On To Nowhere,’ is a good omen for the band’s DIY future. It is an upbeat-sounding song about a never-ending journey to find happiness. The track is a catchy, fun, and angsty with fuzzed out punk guitars and shimmering background instrumentation. Check out it below.
SKATERS formed in 2012 and has toured relentless since then. Since leaving their label, they have released ‘Save Her Something Special,’ a hazy shoegazy track, and ‘Mental Case,’ a low-key song about losing your mind. Both singles promise more interesting work to come. Listen below.
SKATERS is ramping up for a big year, so keep an eye on these guys. It should be exciting to see where they go from here.
