Do you remember Cartel's stint as the "Band in the Bubble" for Dr. Pepper? Producer Kenneth Mount has been reminiscing on Twitter about the experience and soem of the behind the scenes shenanigans. Epic Records does not come off well.
MTV told us to set the drum set up inside the control room where the console and speakers were. #2 learned from MTV experience. The Vice President of epic records at the time didn't know what mastering was and asked me to explain that.

A variety of musicians and bands have begun speaking out on Twitter about the Kelly Thomas verdict. Will Pugh, of Cartel, stated, "If you care at all about civil liberties, you should be paying attention to the Fullerton PD's actions," and Man Overboard tweeted, "No justice for #KellyThomas means no justice for all American citizens. A sad day in our history. Embarrassing and heartbreaking to witness."

Thief Club (Nick from Hit The Lights) released the track "My Heavy" and it can be streamed on Soundcloud. It features Will Pugh from Cartel.
Christian Wagner on 10/24/13 - 07:45 AM
I was chatting with Nick of Hit The Lights about his new project Thief Club. He will be releasing a full length called My Heavy later this year. It was produced by Rob Freeman and features appearances from Will Pugh (Cartel), Shane Henderson (Valencia), and Colin Ross (original singer of Hit The Lights). Freeman produced Skip School, Start Fights, and from what I've heard so far, it seems like it will carry that vibe for this release.

You can read Under The Gun Review's recent interview with Will Pugh (Cartel) here.
Oh, absolutely. We’ve been talking around that idea for probably the last year or so. Like, “Are we going to do a Chroma tour now or are we going to wait until 10 years?” You know, this is the tenth year of Cartel. In October it will be ten years since we recorded The Ransom EP. So we thought “Well could we get away with just a ten year anniversary? We’d just play Chroma and a collection of other stuff. What are we going to do?” So we said, “screw it, we’ll just wait.” We’re close enough. It’ll definitely happen.

Cartel recently released Collider, and we had a chance to sit down and talk with Will and Joseph a little bit about the past, present, and future of the band. You can check out that interview right here.
Thats it. We put our career in the hands of our fan base. If people want to hear more, they'll buy the record and/or buy a ticket to a show. Beyond that, we have no control. I'd love to continue this as long as possible. Hopefully, a great enough percentage of the folks who have bought our records in the past will do so again and we'll continue on. I don't think we've said everything we have to say or written the songs that would allow us to walk away with no letdown.
