Signing
Sect (hardcore, members of Cursed, Burning Love, Earth Crisis) sign to Southern Lord Recordings


North American (Raleigh, NC based) based hardcore band Sect have announced that they have signed on with Los Angeles based label, Southern Lord Recordings. The band will start recording a new LP this summer with Kurt Ballou of Converge at GodCity studio in Salem, MA – it will be their debut release on Southern Lord.

The group, which has members in two countries and multiple cities, is comprised of members, Chris Colohan (Cursed, Burning Love, Left For Dead), guitarists James Chang (Catharsis, Undying) and Scott Crouse (Earth Crisis, The Path Of Resistance), drummer Andy Hurley (Racetraitor, Fall Out Boy, The Damned Things). and bassist Steve Hart (Day Of Suffering).

On the signing, vocalist Chris Colohan says:

“My rule of thumb with labels these days is to work with one that I own at least five LPs from. Smart music business opportunities don’t mean shit without a true respect for each others’ tastes, aesthetic and passions. Between their classic doom alumni (Earth, Sunn, Boris, Sleep), their reverent reissues of cult thrash bands like Nihilist and classic hardcore like Poison Idea or Bl’ast, and the equal love they put into modern bands with the spirit of all of the above (like Power Trip or Nails), a label doesn’t get much closer to that ideal for me than Southern Lord. It was an absolute pleasure working with Greg and the SL family with Burning Love and I’m beyond excited to have Sect join their ranks.”

Greg Anderson, owner of Southern Lord, also commented on the new alliance with Sect:

As soon as I heard about Chris Colohan being in a new band I immediately was excited and preordered their LP. I was not disappointed. Sect are harsh, unforgiving, and brutal in all the most effective ways. We’re extremely honored to be chosen to work with them. We will proudly be their ally in this battle.

We will keep you updated on these endeavours as more details come to light.

Sect released their debut self-titled LP in August 2016, you can check it out below for a taste of things to come from the band.
