SECT, the band featuring Chris Colohan (Burning Love, ex-Cursed), James Chang (ex-Catharsis), Scott Course (Earth Crisis), Ian Edwards (Earth Crisis), and Andrew Hurley (Fall Out Boy, The Damned Things), have premiered a new song titled “Stripes,” via Punktastic. This track is from their new album “No Cure For Death,” which will be released on November 24, via Southern Lord Recordings.
The band commented:
“‘Stripes‘ is about the prison industrial complex in overdrive and the political and penal system keeping it stocked compensating economically for the abolition of slavery, and undercutting the gains of the civil rights movement. Essentially, de facto enslavement that aims to recreate and maintain the same original racial and pecking order with the same scapegoats and victims of not just decades but centuries ago that the West was built on.
It’s an ugly reminder in the age of the overt white supremacist resurgence and the struggle against it that we’ve never yet gotten beyond that underlying foundation.”
