NEWS WIRE12/01/2014 - Apparently we don't update our website very often! That's because we've been hard at work putting the finishing touches on our upcoming album, which will be coming out early in 2015 on Cyber Tracks. We can't divulge too much about it just yet, but we can tell you it's going to be called Beards In Paradise and it will be the first Margate album to be released on vinyl! More details to come in the new year. Cheers and Beers!

01/24/2014 - The date was January 18th 2013. While driving late night through the ominous Nevada desert on our way home from the epic “Mini Keg” tour, the ground started to tremble and a huge flash of light blinded us. The light ran us off the road, rendering us unconscious. As the dawn came to wake us, we gathered ourselves and continued down the road. When we arrived home we soon realized that what had felt like a few hours of sleep to us was actually a whole year for the rest of the world! Call it quantum physics, call it aliens, call it a top secret government experiment that took us over on that weird desert night. Whatever it was… Margate is here and ready to Rock 2014!!!! Expect a new EP and AWESOME shows coming your way!!!
