Published Oct 11, 2017After signing to Southern Lord earlier this year, hardcore supergroup SECT have officially announced their sophomore album.
Comprising members of Cursed, Burning Love, Earth Crisis, Catharsis and more, SECT will release No Cure for Death via Southern Lord on November 24. The album was recorded with Converge hero Kurt Ballou at his famed GodCity Studios and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music.
To refresh your memory, SECT consists of vocalist Chris Colohan (Cursed, Burning Love, Left for Dead), guitarists James Chang (Catharsis, Undying) and Scott Crouse (Earth Crisis, the Path of Resistance), bassist Steve Hart (Day of Suffering), and drummer Andy Hurley (Racetraitor, Fall Out Boy, the Damned Things). Together, they released their self-titled debut back in 2016.
Describing the new album, a press release states, "The result of these musicians' alignment is a caustic, riotous, belligerent style of vile hardcore fed by a boundless well of socio-political vitriol."
It also adds:
They cut the shit and go for the throat with no time to waste, "because the Orwellian police states and irreparable social and ecological disasters we once saw off on the horizon are now on our front doorsteps, in full swing. And in just such a volatile, precarious moment as this for civilization, there is more reason than ever to keep lashing out at a world more suicidally-bent on its own destruction and the exploitation of people, species and the ecosystem itself, than perhaps ever before in history."
