You know it’s a good day when Skaters are involved. They’re back with news of a brand new EP, Rock & Roll Bye Bye, and they already have a track ready entitled The Loser.
The beginning immediately grabs your attention with the first strike of the guitar chord, the guitar riff is skewering and high energy which is exactly how we like our tunes. It’s got the rawness and vitality of Iggy Pop and with the catchiness of some of our other favorites like Twin Peaks, The Orwells, and Wavves to name a few. Without comparing the bands because they’re all brilliant in their own right I’ll let their badass leading track do the talking. Listen below.
As soon as we get more info on Rock & Roll Bye Bye we’ll let you all know but until then, if you’re lucky to be in the U.K. make sure to check them out, they’ll be joining Rat Boy on his massive spring tour, tour dates are below.
