Margate was a melodic punk rock band formed in 2003 in Los Angeles consisting of primary members Alex Helbig (drums, lead vocals), Doug Mitchell (guitar, backing vocals), Steve Weil (bass, backing vocals) and Jeff Dahlin (rhythm guitar).
Based on the strength of two self-released, full-length albums (On the Other Side and Songs in the Key of Awesome), and their 2011 EP release Rock 'n Roll Reserve, the band was the first signing to Aaron Abeyta (aka El Hefe) and his wife Jennifer Abeyta's record label Cyber Tracks in December 2011.
On May 29, 2012, Margate released a self-titled full-length album on Cyber Tracks which was engineered, mixed and produced by El Hefe. The following week, the band headed out on tour to support NOFX in the Netherlands and UK, during which time they also shared the stage with U.K. Subs, Less Than Jake, Snuff (band), and Anti-Nowhere League.
Margate's follow up LP on Cyber Tracks entitled Beards In Paradise was released on June 30th, 2015.
In April 2016 Margate released Strike Twelve & Margate: Do Each Other, a split 7" vinyl with Strike Twelve on Felony Records. In December 2016, the band released what would be their final album Snow Day, an EP of original Holiday themed songs on Cyber Tracks.
On October 6, 2017, the band announced their breakup after 14 years of shows and releases. Margate will be remembered for their catchy singalong pop-punk anthems, three-part vocal harmonies, and heartfelt lyrics.
