On a personal note, we would like to thank all of our families, friends and fans for letting us act like teenagers well into middle age.Special thanks to Jen and Aaron Abeyta of Cyber Tracks for continuing to believe in us and our music and letting us make records. Huge thanks to Paul Miner for George Martin-ing the shit out of this record, sharing our vision (and a few beers) with us while forcing us to make this thing the best it could be. Thanks also goes to the incredible Jimbo Phillips for the original cover art and to Denise Borders for the back cover photo. Thanks to Felony Ron for hanging with us in the studio and documenting the madness. And lastly thanks to our uber-talented homies in the bands Madcap and Blue Collar Special (R.I.P. to both) for writing songs so good that we couldn’t not record them for this album.
West Coast tour dates will be announced next week, stay tuned! Thanks again for all your support!

4/28/2015 - Margate release details on upcoming Cyber Tracks LP - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Margate has released the album art and track listing for their 4th full-length Beards In Paradise. The album will be released on Limited Edition 10” yellow vinyl and digital download via Cyber Tracks on June 30, 2015.
The band says of the release:
“We are extremely grateful to have such an amazing team working on this record. From our old pal Paul Miner producing and making it sound huge, to Jimbo Phillips doing incredible original cover art, to Denise Borders pitching in with a great back cover photo, and of course Jen and El Hefe making the whole thing happen once again on Cyber Tracks. Beards In Paradise is the kind of feel-good summertime record that we’ve always wanted to put out. Copious amounts of cheap beer was destroyed while writing and recording this record, all with the infamous Felony Ron behind the video camera documenting our every chug. We’re stoked for everyone to have a new summer soundtrack and, perhaps more importantly, to empower bearded hula girls everywhere to stand tall and proud!”
