Amazing song! Would you say the record follows in the same veins as this track? Or is this more of an "stand out" track?
This is a stand-out track for sure... but I would probably say that about any song off Collider.

Loving the return to Chroma sound fellas! Was it hard for you guys to come together and recreate that similar vibe that Chroma had to it?
Not hard at all. It was nice to write songs and record them the way we like without any outside criticism from non-band members.

Hii guys! a bunch of my favorite songs come from Cycles, so is this album COllider gonna be similar to Cycles? :)
If you liked Cycles, you'll LOVE Collider. It's got the soft jams, the heavy jams, and mid tempo jams... you can definitely add it to your workout playlist.

What is something special about this album that yall feel is unique to it alone in yalls discography? Each album yall have is different for better and worse and translate differently live.

Also since the release of In Stereo and returning to a more raw output in regards to songs will more songs from yall's self title be played live in the future? I am sure it is harder now that you have more to draw from plus expectations from fans. I wonder does expectations of fans ever interfere with the ideal setlist yall would like to provide?
Collider incorporates everything we've learned about songwriting and production over the past 10 years. That's what makes Collider special to me.

Expectations from fans absolutely interfere with my ideal set list.

I was wondering if you guys had any retrospective thoughts about the self-titled record. It's definitely your most polarizing, though it's my personal favorite, as well as most of my friends'. I had a brief conversation with Joe about it after a show (you guys had not included any s/t songs in your setlist that night, and I asked why), and he insinuated that even the band was a bit polarized about that album, and there was disagreement between you guys over how good it was, whether it was a sound you should return to, whether you should play those songs live, how much the fans like the songs, etc. Those aren't his words - just the impression I got.

So how does the band (or any one of you individually) view that album? And why weren't you including any s/t songs in your sets? It really disappointed me, tbh (thought it was still a great show and set).
Solid impression. We do occasionally play a few songs off the S/T album live. But if we have to make cuts, those are the first songs to go. Don't ask me why. I personally love that album. Some of the songs I would've recorded differently, but we'll blame that on all the fucking antics. I would hope to include a few select favorites on a future live album.

Next time we come through your town, find me and let me know what song of the S/T you want to hear.

Just want to say that I love the song. Been a while since I have been really excited for a new Cartel release. Not to say anything bad about any of your material, I have enjoyed all of your albums but I haven't been this excited for a new release since Chroma.
I'm glad you're excited!

I would love for Cartel to do more covers. The problem has always been deciding on the songs.

Free Bird, in it's entirety, is on my list.

Now that you have 4 length albums, do you feel like shows have to be longer now and more songs need to be played? How difficult is writing a setlist going to be?
We usually don't decide our set time. So we try to pack in as many favorites as we can into a 30 or 45 min window.
