Before the U.S. tour begins, SKATERS will celebrate the release of Manhattan with a hometown album party show at The Bowery Ballroom the night before album street date on February 24th.They will then leave for the U.K., where they have amassed a loyal following, for a string of shows.

 

The digital version of Manhattan is currently available for preorder on iTunes. Upon purchase, fans instantly receive the first single, “Deadbolt.” Those who preorder the album will also receive an exclusive bonus track, “Played Out,” on release date. Click here to order.

 

Manhattan is already attracting glowing headline in advance of its release:

 

“Hubbard provides layered guitar chords that are more waves of sound than riffs, adding to the feeling of isolation. Meanwhile, Cummings’ detached voice adds another element of frost, further referencing the band’s post-punk influences.” –RollingStone.Com

“The mod-rockers combine The Strokes ragged melodies, hints of 2tone’s checkerboard tempo swings and Britpop’s hooligan smirk, plus new Wave’s baritone strut and hardcore ‘s sprint; the result reverberates with unbridled energy.” – Electronic Musician Magazine

“A band with the garage revivalist instincts and lo-fi cool to finally bring guitars back into fashion.” —NME (UK)

SKATERS have recently shot a video for the song “Miss Teen Massachusetts.” Click here to view and post.
