This event is all ages
A lot has transpired since we last put forth a full length album. This band has gone through many tumultuous yet exciting experiences that have brought us to this point - the release of our 4th album, Collider. The title is a representation of those aforementioned experiences that shaped the continuing career of Cartel. When juxtaposed forces collide in the arena of physics many things can happen: destruction, creation, and metamorphosis, to name a few. We feel as though all of those things and more have shaped the career arc of this band. But most of all, they have had a direct impact on the way we create the music that you'll hear on this record.
We found ourselves without a label and marched forward to experiment with the idea of self-releasing and self-producing our music. That experiment was the In Stereo EP. The unintentional discovery in that process was that there is an honesty that is imperative to the making of our music that is necessary to create the best possible sonic experience. That is to say, we're at our best when we are not concerned with anything but making an album that we WANT to make. It was evident in Chroma. We strove for it despite the spectacle perceived in our self-titled album. We tried to find it again on Cycles. And now, with all other distractions and deterrences aside, we've found it again.
Some may describe the feeling as magical or effortless. I assure you there were no spells or rituals (of the magical nature anyway), and it certainly was not effortless. This painstaking and self reflecting effort yielded something that we are incredibly proud of and that we stand by 100%. Collider is the culmination of 3 years worth of life, love, and reflection. We can't wait for all of you to experience it with us and enjoy it like we do. Expect us on the road in the US and international destinations playing heart-filled shows that display our passion for the energy and essence put forth in the making of these songs - this album. This is Cartel in all its forms. This is Collider.
Dare to Dream
Dare To Dream is a hard-working, alternative/pop rock band from Los Angeles, California. What started as a few best friends coming together to make some music has grown rapidly into something that none of the members expected just a couple short years ago. Since forming, Dare To Dream has written and produced a debut EP, “A Minor Inconvenience,” featuring songs like “This Goes Out (To You)” and “Two Nights in London,” and is now finishing their sophomore EP, hoping for an summer 2013 release. By dedicating themselves to producing quality recorded music as well as making their live show a personal experience for fans, the members of Dare To Dream hope to follow in the footsteps of bands like All Time Low, Mayday Parade, and Blink-182, who gave them the inspiration to pursue music on the professional level.
T-Shirts 4 Tomorrow
T-Shirts 4 Tomorrow, people may ask, "what is this Tshirts 4 Tomorrow?", well they are litterally the shirt that you are going to wear tomorrow, and on the side they are a pop/rock band out of Brighton Colorado. T4T (as they are also referred to as) is derived of one singer/guitarist (Ethan) one drummer (Brandon) one bassist (Kevin) and one guitarist/sex icon (Erik), who have come together to combine their love for making music. The end result is what you are hearing as you read this.
T4T got their start as an acoustic duo consisting of still original members Ethan and Brandon in the year of 2007. They still incorporate their roots into the music now, but have evolved it into the new Tshirts 4 Tomorrow. Added to the mix, now, are spankin new members Kevin that "slap da bass" and electrifies the crowd, and Erik, the face melting shredmaster that fuses his classic rock solos with pop/rock flow. Now they are geared up to get things rollin, and take their show on the road (litterally) where they really strive to connect with their amazing fans. Keep an eye out for them in the up coming years as we expect BIG things from them in the future.............. "hope you likey"
