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 signed a new deal with Southern Lord. The band will soon enter GodCity Studio in Salem, MA to record a new album with producer Kurt Ballou (Converge).
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.”
