Cartel are currently working on their new EP and we've got the inside scoop on a few of the details. The band will be self-producing the EP, which if the first song we've heard is of any indication, can be described as classic Cartel. The tunes will be finished, hopefully, around the end of July - and then mixed by Vance Powell and mastered by Richard Dodd. Shaping up to be a late summer / early fall release.
