Continuing to stoke the fiery anticipation around their sophomore album, Austin-based duo Street Sects have unveiled a new song titled “The Drifter.” Driven by metallic clatter and vocalist Leo Ashline’s neo-noir narrative, the track serves as the bridge between the calamity of the duo’s 2016 debut ‘End Position‘ and the forthcoming melody-tight LP ‘The Kicking Mule‘.

Listen to “The Drifter” now by clicking below:

Continuing to redefine both themselves and the post-industrial canon, Street Sects have dug their heels even deeper into sample-driven noise while fleshing out chronicles of brutality (“glass in the tread of a tire / bone peeking through the skin”) and loathing (“At my worst I’m full of sentiment / At my worst I carry most of it around”) with ‘The Kicking Mule‘. Known for their emotionally battering, fog-drenched live performances, Street Sects are eager to bring the catharsis of their industrial din to rooms across the country through December. A full tour itinerary can be found below.

The Kicking Mule‘ will be released October 26th via San Francisco-based label The Flenser. Pre-order the album by clicking here! LP orders will include a limited booklet containing a short story written by Street Sects’ Leo Ashline with cover art by Huseyin Ozkan.
