Bobby boris Pretty good single from Street Sects. Love Side A a lot, great improvement in production, great song, sounds like an expansion from what they were doing on their last year EP Rat Jacket. Side B seems to be a weird fusion of Street Sects harsh sound and melodic sound, and in my opinion it doesn't sound all that great... Overall really good though, I'd give this thing a light to decent 8 Favorite track: Things Will Be Better in Hell.

light_emom For such a short piece, the concept is super well-developed and is as instrumentally interesting as I've come to expect from Street Sects. Looking forward to the next full album! Favorite track: Things Will Be Better in Hell.

Liam O'Brien More awesome music from the biggest name in industrial right now! The lyrics on the first track are super haunting and reflect the destruction love can be used to justify

about

Supported by Pitchfork, Vice, Rolling Stone, Bandcamp, and The Needle Drop, and recently having completed a North American tour with Dalek, Street Sects has recorded two new tracks, one of which is built on disassembled parts of a Controlled Bleeding song. This new 7" is pressed on 7" vinyl and is exclusive to Toronto-based Artoffact Records.

Things Will Be Better in Hell is a two song 7" single about love and relationships. Side A, Things Will Be Better in Hell, is a view from within the confines of a codependent relationship, one where addiction and love have become inseparable. Where getting clean means getting out, and is therefore unthinkable. The core mainframe of this song was built from digital reworkings of live drum samples recorded by Alton Jenkins of Future Death.

Side B, Bite Down Hard, takes a look at a "successful" relationship. In love, the word "forever" means until the end of life. But what happens if you make it? If you manage to stay loyal to one person, one idea, one position until your final days, how does that feel? Do you look back upon your life with a sense of pride and accomplishment, or do you lament the missed opportunities, and wonder how things might have been? Built entirely from samples that were pulled from Controlled Bleeding's "Return of the Quiet", "Bite Down Hard" was originally intended to be included on Controlled Bleeding's Carving Songs, a collection of remixes of songs from Larva Lumps and Baby Bumps, but as the song came together it became clear that the track was less of a "remix", and more of a Street Sects original composition, therefore warranting a separate release.

The 7” is pressed in two versions, one on clear vinyl and one on red.

Track Name: Things Will Be Better in Hell
THINGS WILL BE BETTER IN HELL

That thing we live for
It doesn’t exist
That thing we work towards
it never happens
Maybe when we’re dead, we’ll get respect
maybe when we’re dead, we can finally collect

You are the one
who built this hell in my heart
I love you the same
we turned everything off

I’ll keep you to myself

We’re just having fun
We’re not addicted
And it’s just forty bucks
No one could kill themselves on that
cut it in half and let’s save the rest
cut it again then we’ll go to bed
finish it off and then we can go in on another

you are the one
who built this hell in my heart
I love you the same
we turned everything off
I prefer you this way
I love you the same
We pawned everything
and I want a love that’s drained of color
you didn’t know what color was
I want you this way
We shut everyone out
A little world of our own
I want you to stay
We turned everything off
Track Name: Bite Down Hard
BITE DOWN HARD

Just put one in my head, I want you to
One in my head, I dare you to
Every day, I live for you
Every breath, I draw for you

concerning what we began
I lactate and starve
while you’re still waiting for your moment
we could have anything we want
except a better view
if our lives mean nothing
then why is it so hard for you

just put one in my head, I want you to
One in my head, I beg you to
Every day, another flash of hope
and then…
back to the same old lie

same layer of paint
same look on your face while you undress
like you’re hoping to find something else
same old sow
gun locked in the drawer
its not love but it’s more than we deserve
I’ve been hoping you’d work up the nerve
my sad clown

one in my head, I want you to
one in my head, I dare you to
every day, I live for you
every breath, I draw for you

is there someone here
trapped inside of your head
is it strange I can’t remember ever seeing you look satisfied
underneath
thirty years of restraint
you’ve been milking your contempt
until everything shut down

now my face feels wrong
petrified by quiet hatred
this house feels wrong
sucking both of our lives into it
quietly slowing us down


I could do it myself but I’ll just wait my turn
