The Skinny: Cartel’s new album Collider is now available for pre-purchase at The album will be available to the public on March 26th. There you will also find exclusive merchandise, along with a new single, entitled “Mosaic”, which is also available below via the SoundCloud player!

Joseph, lead guitarist of Cartel, recently spoke about the process of recording and writing “Mosaic” stating, “‘Mosaic’ began as two main guitar parts. We’ve had various musical influences floating around our brains since we started writing songs together in 2003. Some of those ideas finally found a home inside this song. From here, more layers began to accumulate and as we took a step back, the final picture was ‘Mosaic’. Headphones not required, but suggested for enhanced aural experience.”
