Colohan said the following:

“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.”

SECT (Earth Crisis, Fall Out Boy, Etc.) Premiere New Song “Curfew”

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 “Curfew.” The band’s self-titled debut will be released on August 5.

The band said the following about the song:

“Friends: We had reservations about posting this, not wanting it to come off as insensitive, opportune or self-serving (“Fuck this tragedy and here’s a song dealing with it, Preorder Here!”) but at the same time, really wanting to post it, and right now. This is how we honestly feel, and the epitome of what this music still represents for us. It’s how we share grief and anger over such horrors, how we vent and process them personally and contribute to the greater dialogue about it publicly; we form our words and songs into a scream and let it out to join the others. So:

We’re putting this song up early in light of the rising death toll in one of the worst mass murders in modern western history, to help sustain the conversation and if nothing else to offer support, condolences and solidarity from our corner of the world. We stand with all victims of systematic violence, abuse and deliberate oppression.
