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.

Check out our interview with Cartel here.
From The InterviewI think it's just writing about whatever, it's not going to be a bunch of girl songs or anything like that. Love songs, i'm sure there will be one or two. Lyrically? I'm married now, so anything love-wise is going to be written from a different perspective, there's not going to be songs about one night stands or anything. I think it's going to be more focused on being a person, which is what our music was based upon in the first place.
