SECT Surprise Release New Album “Blood Of The Beasts”

SECT (Fall Out Boy, Earth Crisis, etc.) have surprise released a new album titled “Blood Of The Beasts.” You can stream the effort and check out an official video for the song “Like Animals” below:

The group said the following about the record:

“Ten reflections on the myth of progress, the new old tribalism, the single face of all subjugations, the broken promise of automation, love, loss & obsolescence set against the dying light of a better tomorrow.”

They also added:

“A lot of people overseas caught on when this went live at 12AM last night, but for the rest of us… Hi world, this is the 3rd Sect LP, Blood of the Beasts. We decided to just spring it. The title comes from French filmmaker Georges Franju’s 1949 slaughterhouse documentary Le Sang des Bêtes. Musically, it’s our idea for this band fully realized, the best yet melding of all our backgrounds & input thrown together. @godcitymusic nailed it, as always. Thematically, a lot of unfiltered heavy-heartedness over things and people was let out on this one: Battles now largely lost, movements undermined, realities overwritten, people already or imminently lost, situations our kind was ringing the warning bells about from a long distance off, a long buildup of red flags approaching in steps, now washing over us all here & everywhere as the collective will of the people around us submits in permanent confusion & willful amnesia to a new digitized populism, which is more demoralizing than the rise or fall of any one dictator. I’m not sure how to properly dispose of idealism when it becomes muscle memory, no longer viable but you don’t know or want to live any other way. If you figure that one out, let me know. Yeah so anyway here’s Wonderwall. Blood of The Beasts, out today & for all our shows this weekend. Go to @sectxvx / @southernlordrecords / @southernlordrecordingseurope to get it, hear it all, and see the video our friend @reidhaithcock cut together for Like Animals. Thank You. #sectxvx #bloodofthebeasts #xvx

‘You best believe, I live to see dead souls released. All cages broke, All bosses choked, On the blood of the beasts.’”
