Marmalakes is the Austin, TX, group led by Chase Weinacht (guitar/songwriting) and Josh Halpern (drums/production), lifelong friends whose spirited intensity leaps from their recordings. Marmalakes released their debut EP in 2010, followed by well-received EP releases in 2011, 2012, and 2013. Please Don't Stop will be the band's debut full-length, and proves to be well worth the wait.
While Weinacht and Halpern always return to write songs together as Marmalakes, both have remained involved in other musical projects over the years. Halpern stays busy, currently playing with Shearwater (Sub Pop), Palo Duro (30th Century Recordings), and The Dan Ryan (Cosmic Dreamer Music). He is featured on "Black Widow," the new single from Loma (Sub Pop). In 2017, he recorded with John Vanderslice (Tiny Telephone) as part of the group Allelujah, as well as playing in Still Corners (Sub Pop). Weinacht currently records and performs with The Hermits, who will have a new record in 2018.
