…so freakish, it makes the blackest of blacks look gray by comparison. - Needle Drop …an achievement for industrial, one of the most pissed-off, angry records one can come into contact with. - CLRVYNT ...reaches back past the sleek ’90s take on the genre to the early and dark underbelly of industrial, invoking the work of Throbbing Gristle, early Skinny Puppy and Einstürzende Neubauten. - Burning Ambulance On the heels of the release of their poignant and punishing new album End Position, Austin duo Street Sects have another batch of tour dates to support the album. Having completed a west coast tour to close out 2016, Street Sects will now tour out east and back on a 27-date tour featuring support from bands such as Planning For Burial, HIDE, and Decide Today in various markets. Check out all tour dates below. 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. Disgusted with life but eager 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. Together they released a series of singles and honed their fierce and confrontational live performance, eventually writing and recording what would become End Position. Ashline’s pessimistic lyrics explore an array of intense, personal obsessions and the violence inherent in modern life, and End Position is a provocative existential statement on the bleeding-edge of extreme music.
