As the story goes, Michael Ian Cummings and Noah Rubin formed SKATERS in 2012, and spent a year trading demos between Los Angeles and London with guitarist Joshua Hubbard. A few months later, the three met up in a Chinatown (NYC) loft to created their own art zine, YONKS, and record their debut EP, Schemers, which was given away for free on the band's website and drew immediate critical praise:
