SECT (Fall Out Boy, Earth Crisis, Ex-Cursed, Etc.) Sign With Southern Lord


SECT (Fall Out Boy, Earth Crisis, ex-Cursed, etc.) have signed with Southern Lord. Vocalist Chris Colohan commented:

“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.”

Recording for the band’s sophomore outing will take place at GodCity Studio in Salem, MA this summer with Converge‘s Kurt Ballou handling the production duties. Current live dates include:

03/10 Baltimore, MD – Sidebar
03/11 Wallingford, CT – Wamleg
03/12 Brooklyn, NY – Saint Vitus Bar
