skaters2013 SKATERS announce debut album MANHATTAN, stream new single Deadbolt

New York indie-rock outift SKATERS will finally release their full-length debut, MANHATTAN, on February 24th via Warner Bros. Records. In anticipation, they’ve released the album’s lead single, “Deadbolt”, as a lyric video. Directed by Bill Richards, the clip fulfills its purpose by stylizing the lyrics into what appears to be a dated karaoke video, which isn’t exactly a coincidence.

“It’s been a lifelong dream to make it into a karaoke machine,” singer Michael Ian Cummings explains. “We didn’t think it was going to happen any time soon, so we took matters into our own hands. Here is our new song, ‘Deadbolt’—a song about addiction … to karaoke.” Sing along below

In the coming months, SKATERS will tour both North American and UK, tagging along with Palma Violets and Deap Vally, respectively.
