Fall Out Boy drummer Andrew Hurley has teamed up with fellow vegans for a new hardcore band comprised of all plant-based eaters. The new group, called Sect, also includes guitarists James Chang and Scott Crouse, bassist Ian Edwards (Earth Crisis), and Chris Colohan on vocals. The genre may not be for everyone, but the message is spot on.
Colohan owns food company Vegan Magic—the makers of coconut oil-based Magic Vegan Bacon Grease and new dairy-free cheese product “Parmageddon.” The band formed around the idea that there “is more reason than ever to keep lashing out at a world more suicidal bent on its own destruction and the exploitation of people, species and the ecosystem itself, than perhaps ever before in history.”
Sect pre-released three songs—“Scourge of Empire,” “Death Dealer,” and “Sinking”—and will debut its full self-titled album in North America on August 5. Full dislosure this is HARD rock, further proving that vegans are not soft. Check out guitar lashing, drum crushing debut.
