SECT (Cursed, Fall Out Boy, Earth Crisis) hammer in issues of injustice in new song, ‘Stripes’

By Aaron Lohan

We at Punktastic are proudly premiering ‘Stripes’, the visceral new song from SECT, who happen to feature members of Cursed, Earth Crisis, Fall Out Boy, Burning Love and more.

It is a song that is full of pent up fury, unleashing its themes through a untampered raw brand of hardcore. Speaking of the themes; “‘Stripes’ is about the prison industrial complex in overdrive and the political and penal system keeping it stocked compensating economically for the abolition of slavery, and undercutting the gains of the civil rights movement,” explains the band. “Essentially, de facto enslavement that aims to recreate and maintain the same original racial and pecking order with the same scapegoats and victims of not just decades but centuries ago that the West was built on. It’s an ugly reminder in the age of the overt white supremacist resurgence and the struggle against it that we’ve never yet gotten beyond that underlying foundation.”

‘Stripes’ is taken from SECT’s upcoming debut album, ‘No Cure for Death’, which will be released on the 24th November via Southern Lord Records.
