SKATERS Go full throttle with ‘The Loner’

Landing with a thud on the current pile of ethereal ectoplasm, SKATERS are dishing out a taste of straight up rock and roll served in a shot glass, rimmed with salt and filled with ‘The Loner’.

The band have been knocking around for a while but ‘The Loner’, taken from the upcoming new EP Rock and Roll Bye out via Gary Powell’s label 25 Hour Convenience Store on May 11th, sounds like the way to make a whole new heap of fans (and friends maybe).

Thrashing guitar surrounds a hooky chorus and ferocity is the name of the game. Fast and furious it delivers with a pinch of punch. If you’re looking for a foot-stomper then you needn’t look any further.

Michael Ian Cummings said of the track “The Loner was an early favourite during the making of our second album (due for release in the Autumn), while some songs stand out with clever production or catchy lyrics, this song rose to the top due to pure raw power. This is skaters live on a good night, if you find yourself so lucky.”
