SECT Announces East Coast Dates With Hive + West Coast Tour With Darkest Hour And Misery Signals; Blood Of The Beasts Out Now On Southern Lord

American/Canadian hardcore collective SECT has announced new East and West Coast North American tour dates in support of their third LP, Blood Of The Beasts, which was released through Southern Lord last summer.

The members of SECT are life-long contributors to the hardcore scene, collectively hailing from acts who have been active since the early 1990s. Comprised 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, The Damned Things), the band coalesces their influences into a gnarled, metallic intensity. Blood Of The Beasts was recorded at GodCity with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Nails, All Pigs Must Die) who also performed clean guitar on the song “Skies Wide Shut.” The infamous Dre Black also provides guest vocals on the song “Cirrhosis Of Youth.”

SECT will raid the East Coast US with support from Hive, with shows in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and Baltimore March 6th, 7th, and 8th. Just over a month later, SECT will support labelmates Darkest Hour on the band’s North American West Coast 25th Anniversary trek, with additional support from Misery Signals. The tour runs from April 16th through 26th, with shows in Denver, Albuquerque, Scottsdale, San Diego, Anaheim, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver. See all confirmed dates below and watch for additional news and tour dates to be issued.
