For Atlanta-based rock band Cartel, this has been a very good year.
Since forming last summer, the group has toured non-stop, turned heads with
a self-released EP and inked a record deal. With this new EP coming out November 16th on The Militia Group and several national tours ahead of them,
the band is gaining momentum and not looking back. Frontman William Pugh
says it best by announcing: “We want to take over the world.”
Cartel’s songs blend thoughtful lyrics with infectious hooks to achieve
quality rock for stage or stereo. On standout tracks like “Luckie St.” and
“Last Chance” Cartel’s talent for songwriting proves undeniable. Compelling guitar arrangements and melodic prowess complement Cartel’s youthful
energy to rival more seasoned artists and demand widespread attention.
