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.

Dying Scene Records to release first plugged-in album “Holy Shit” from Chicago acoustic punk act Davey Dynamite

I must admit, when a promo from some Chicago based artist named “Davey Dynamite” hit my inbox a couple weeks ago I did not think I was about to discover the next Dying Scene Records band or what would become one of my top 3 favorite albums of 2016 – I mean, the cover art and the band name didn’t exactly conjure up a mental image of the angst ridden punk rock I typically like to put out on the label. Regardless, I jacked in the headphones, spun up the first track and found myself intrigued 30 seconds in. It appeared to be a catchy yet slower tune but there were hints of a build and by the 1:55 mark, HOLY SHIT!, things just exploded into the saliva spraying, vein popping, voice losing fury that embodies everything I love about punk rock. Turns out this first track was but just a taste of what the rest of the album would hold and by the time I reached the last song I knew I had discovered something extraordinary special. Something I had to share with all of you, starting with the album’s title track, “Holy Shit” which you can check out right here.

On December 20th Dying Scene Records will be releasing “Holy Shit”, the first fully plugged-in album from Chicago acoustic-punk act Davey Dynamite.

If you’re new to Davey Dynamite he is as political as he is emotional and you might say he is the folk-gone-electric lineage of O Pioneers! and Against Me! born anew in the vein of Chicago punk rock.

While Dying Scene Records is handling digital distribution, the folks at Don’t Panic Records & Distro are handling vinyl, which you can pre-order here.

Half of proceeds collected for this album will be donated to the water protectors fighting against the Dakota Access Pipeline at Standing Rock.
