It’s an indication of how we deal with music in the 21st Century.
When I first heard that Fall Out Boy drummer Andy Hurley was channeling his hardcore roots in a new band called Sect I immediately went to google to check its accuracy. There was no need for a trip to the record store to ask an informed worker or indeed to check a zine or music press for validation.
And so a quick check led me to noisey and it tells me that the band are a straight edge, vegan group, which also features members of the punk bands Cursed, Burning Love, Earth Crisis and Catharsis, and they will release their self-titled debut album on August 5.
That really piqued my interest do i delved further. Where’s the bandcamp page? the twitter account, the facepook page so i can like it. Vegan and Straight edge! let’s get that back out there.
There doesn’t seem to be any social media presence but the record is going to self released and sounds like a pure belter of aggressive hardcore punk rock. Screaming at ya
