With the sonic whiplash of 2016’s End Position still looming, noisecore duo Street Sects have returned with a new 12-inch. Rat Jacket, a 4-song 12inch, thrashes and roils through a din of brisk samples and melodic turbulence. Over a week ahead of its official release and as the band embarks on a North American tour, Rat Jacket can be streamed in full today via Post-Punk.
Not quite a follow-up to their fervently acclaimed End PositionRat Jacket sidesteps gnashing noise in favor of indulgent post-punk. Edges have been softened, melodies are decked with hooks, and Leo Ashline’s wanton vocals have been thrust front-and-center. Delving into loyalty, trust, betrayal, paranoia, and the innate selfishness of man, Street Sects have lost none of their grit amidst Rat Jacket’s aural detour.
Street Sects formed in 2013 after vocalist Leo Ashline emerged from the fog of a thirteen year battle with addiction and began collaborating with friend and multi-instrumentalist Shaun Ringsmuth. Aching for catharsis, the duo embraced the experimental attitude and disillusionment of early industrial music pioneers, eschewing traditional rock music instrumentation and arrangement in favor of modern sampling technology and harsh electronics.
