The four piece punk band is fronted by 16-year-old (yes that’s 16 – puts my life into perspective) singer Mikalia Delgado (even her name’s cool), who’s vocals have hints on Paramore’s Hayley Williams surging through them.
Commenting on being handpicked by Pugh, Delago said: “We have been pinching ourselves since we got the call from our management. We’ve almost finished our debut EP and it will be released while we’re on the road…almost like it was meant to be!”
With the Cartel’s being famed for their energetic live shows and more so for the after parties, that’ll be one hell of a EP launch party, which will see Delago sticking to soda-pop we’re sure. NOT!
To celebrate the tour, the band has also released first single Alive available as free download from their Facebook page which can be found here. If you’re a fan of You Me at Six, Paramore and Tonight Alive – you’ll definitely want to catch these guys on tour.
