Cartel Announce Hometown Christmas Show

image

Cartel may have wrapped up the tenth anniversary celebration for their breakout record, Chroma earlier this year, but now the band are giving a little something back to their hometown. On Monday (Oct. 19), it was announced that the Atlanta-based band will be finishing off the year with one final show for Christmas.

The Christmas show will be acoustic set and take place on Dec. 23 at Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta. The show will reportedly feature the band playing songs spanning their entire career, so we do anticipate that some tracks from Chroma will make the setlist.

For those living in Atlanta (or pretty much anywhere if you have a way to get to the show), tickets for the show will go on sale beginning this Thursday, Oct. 22 at 11 a.m. local time. Since the venue is a smaller, more intimate location, it might be a good idea to get those tickets as soon as they become available.

Cartel to Celebrate ‘Chroma’ Tenth Anniversary with Tour

Cartel’s breakout and debut album, Chroma will be turning ten this year, and the band have now confirmed they will be heading out on a “Chroma Tenth Anniversary” tour this Spring.

Last year, the band confirmed they would be performing the 2005 record in full during South By So What? in Grand Prairie, TX,  making some wonder if this might be the beginning of a tour where they would celebrate the anniversary of the album.

During the weekend, the band helped add gasoline to the speculation fire when they tweeted some “Chroma stuff” would announced this week, specifically on Monday at 3 PM (EST).

The tour will officially begin on April 9 in Minneapolis at Mill City Nights and wrap up on May 16 in Lawrence, KS at the Granada. Heading out on the road with them will be TEAM, Driver Friendly, and Hit the Lights for half of the tour dates.

Check out the full list of tour dates below and take a flashback in time with the music video for the lead single from the album, “Honestly.”
