Unloading a brutalizing barrage of grinding crust and metallic hardcore wrath, SECT unites 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). No Cure For Death was recorded with Kurt Ballou at God City studios, mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music. Fueled by socio-political vitriol, for SECT, the purpose of hardcore as they know it is to convey an urgency that transcends age, credentials or scene politics, to convert desperation into real talk and action.
No Cure For Death is out now on LP, CD, and digital formats; find merch bundles via Southern Lord’s US webshop HERE and Euro store HERE, and find the record at iTunes HERE, Spotify HERE.
“the album finds the scene vets taking a stand against the sociopolitical status quo… The doomsday clock is ticking, and there’s no time to waste.” – Revolver Magazine
“the metallic hardcore is filthy and sinister, laden with a guitar tone resembling a power tool and with feedback akin to the noise one would make scraping on steel.” – Exclaim!
“The pedigree of SECT is incredible. Stacked with hardcore punk vets in each slot, their five contributors have cultivated a rich history, but none seems interested in touting any one single member’s past. The music and, more importantly, the message are immediate, harvesting concern and motivating fury from the present tense. Blasting ugly, confrontational D-beat crustcore, steeped in savage commentary regarding society’s conflicts…” – New Noise Magazine
“the video is an all-action affair that captures the intensity of both the band’s performance style and the song at hand… the song sounds both massive and mean.” – No Echo
“The album was produced by Converge’s Kurt Ballou, so you should know what it’s going to sound like already – total fucking Armageddon.” – Metal Injection

GUST To Support Burn On European Tour This March

Sweden’s GUST has announced the band’s upcoming participation supporting New York hardcore innovators, Burn, on the band’s Do Or Die tour of Europe this March. Drawing from their harsh self-titled full-length on Southern Lord, and sharing some new material coming together for the follow-up album, the Gothenburg-based GUST crew is eager to hit the road again.

With ten tracks in just under a half-hour, GUST unleashes a maelstrom of cutting edge demolition, with cerebral elements continually emerging from the shadows with an almost ethereal effect on their self-titled LP. Self-recorded at Fvck Life Studios, and mastered at Audiosiege by Brad Boatright (Warcry, From Ashes Rise, Deathreat,) who also supplies guest vocals to the album, Gust is a crushing and incredibly dynamic album, displaying a unique style of crust-infused hardcore and talented songwriting from the young act.

See GUST’s video for “Reality Chokes” RIGHT HERE.

Highly recommended for fans of Cursed, Oathbreaker, Rise And Fall, and of course Southern Lord labelmates The Secret, Baptists and Dead In The Dirt, stream and purchase Gust at Bandcamp HERE.
