***UPDATE*** Now that we've hit our initial goal with 10 days left, we're pushing hard to meet our secondary goal of $5,000! Keep spreading the word people! And remember, Kickstarter is the only place you can pre-order our album and get the other perks listed on the right, and these packages will go away once the campaign ends on April 30th. Don't wait buy the album after it comes out, pre-order today! ***THANKS! XOXOXO - MARGATE ***

Margate's goal is to get funding to record our upcoming EP. We've been a band since 2003 and have released 2 previous self-funded full lengths, the last of which we recorded by ourselves in our 10x10 rehearsal studio in North Hollywood. For this next EP (called "Rock 'n Roll Reserve") we want to go to Buzzbomb Sound Labs and record with engineer/producer Paul Miner who has worked with New Found Glory, Atreyu and Thrice among many others in his nice big comfy recording studio.

Paul mixed our last record and we are really looking forward to creating something special with him, and focusing our attention on the songs and the performance rather than the engineering aspect. Not to mention not having to worry about the band next door cranking up while we're in the middle of a killer take.

The total cost of recording, mixing, mastering, duplicating, producing and promoting this EP will be around $5,000. Our goal via kickstarter is to raise at least half of that. As you can see in our video, we're doing our part to raise the other half. Margate is and always has been a 100% DIY adventure, with the band members writing and recording all the music, creating all the artwork, making our own videos, designing our own websites, etc... we work really hard and will continue to do so.

The songs are written and ready to go, all we need is your help! Every dollar counts, and remember that if we don't hit our goal of $2,500 we don't get anything. Your contribution will not be withdrawn unless we hit our goal. Thanks for your support, please spread the word.
