Update: The chat is over, thanks to the guys for hanging out tonight.
Cartel won't be releasing Collider until March 26th, but today we're giving you a small taste of what's to come on arguably the best album of the band's career. The track we're premiering is "Uninspired," a mid-tempo rocker that showcases vocalist Will Pugh in total control. He and the rest of the band will also be joining this thread to discuss the song, the upcoming album, and anything else, so stick around for that as well. So check out "Uninspired" in the replies (or the band's AP.net profile) and hang out with the band.
Just wanted to remind everyone that Cartel be chatting here on the website on Monday, January 28th at 7pm EST and we'll be debuting a brand new song ... so, make sure to mark those calendars and come hang out with the band as you get your first taste of Collider.

Cartel have announced that they will be playing at Swazye's in Marietta, GA on September 29th. The 250-cap venue is where the band played their first show in 2003, and the show is in celebration of the venue's 10 year anniversary. Tickets are on sale here.
PropertyOfZack was pretty busy today, considering it was a Friday. They have a Road Noms blog from Dan of Set Your Goals, a few Cartel live videos that you can watch in the replies, a couple of playlist features from States and Falling In Reverse/Miss May I, and some new stuff in their merch store.
After Cartel finishes up their tour with Set Your Goals in April, singer/guitarist Will Pugh will be available to produce artists/bands in Atlanta before Cartel begins recording their next EP later this summer. In addition to helping produce all the band's releases, Pugh produced and engineered the band's latest EP, In Stereo. If interested, send an email here.
Cartel have announced an Australian headlining tour in November, as well as a couple college shows on October. Following the band's Australian dates, they will be supporting Hot Rod Circuit's reunion tour. Head to the replies for dates.
Today we are happy to bring you a brand new song from Cartel. The song is called "Conduit" and it comes from the band's upcoming EP, In Stereo, which will be available on October 4th. Check it out below.
