North American straightedge/vegan hardcore/crust outfit SECT -- featuring members of Cursed, Left For Dead, Catharsis, Undying, Earth Crisis, The Path Of Resistance, Day Of Suffering, Racetraitor, and many more - will release their second album, No Cure For Death, this Friday via Southern Lord. Advancing its release, the entire LP is now streaming at Revolver Magazine.
SECT vocalist Chris Colohan states, "For a band of people spread so far and wide, No Cure For Death is the record we got to make once we were really rolling - after we'd played a year of shows together, had dusted SECT off and put in the time on stage and on the road to take better aim at both the sounds and messages we wanted to make."
Revolver offers with their album stream, "Recorded with Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studios, the album finds the scene vets taking a stand against the sociopolitical status quo... The doomsday clock is ticking, and there's no time to waste."

SECT unites vocalist Chris Colohan (Cursed, Burning Love, Left For Dead), guitarists James Chang (Catharsis, Undying) and Scott Crouse (Earth Crisis, The Path Of Resistance), bassist Steve Hart (Day Of Suffering), and drummer Andy Hurley (Racetraitor, The Damned Things). No Cure For Deathwas recorded with Kurt Ballou at God City studios, mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music. Fueled by socio-political vitriol, for SECT, the purpose of hardcore as they know it is to convey an urgency that transcends age, credentials or scene politics, to convert desperation into real talk and action.
The band's "Day For Night" video, directed by Justin Reich (Black Label Society, Crowbar, Hatebreed), can be seen HERE, and footage of the recording sessions can be viewed HERE.

"the metallic hardcore is filthy and sinister, laden with a guitar tone resembling a power tool and with feedback akin to the noise one would make scraping on steel." - Exclaim!
"the video is an all-action affair that captures the intensity of both the band's performance style and the song at hand... the song sounds both massive and mean." - No Echo
"The album was produced by Converge's Kurt Ballou, so you should know what it's going to sound like already - total fucking Armageddon." - Metal Injection
