"Conflict of Interest Demo 2012"

In time for our European tour in a few days, Carry The Weight Records (uk) will be releasing the 'CONFLICT OF INTEREST DEMO 2012' that we recorded a couple of weeks ago.

5 brand new songs that will be on a very limited run of 150 cassettes! We will have the majority of these on tour with us, but CTW will have 50 copes for sale online, so don't miss out!

We will ALSO have 2 new songs featured alongside some other awesome bands on PUNX DON'T DRINK VOL. 2 this year coming out on THIRDxPARTY RECORDS.

Don't forget to pick up the EP on Grave Mistake. We've received pretty raving response so far, and we can't wait to bring this shit on the road.

Check the new song below and spread the word. See you on tour! XXX 

Conflict of Interest

Budgets strained, outsourced prisons. 
Corporate vultures with jurisdiction
Bidding on a barebones facility that will minimize costs maximize efficiency.
Hedging their investments so they lobby for a crackdown. 
Ensuring future growth of course they lobby for a crackdown.
Baiting the poor, a war against drugs. 
Punishing users with families destroyed.
Privatized and dehumanized, 
Record profits pumped back to the source. 
Record profits pumped down their fucking throats.
It’s a betrayal of man.

Grave Mistake EP out now + Euro tour info

We're happy and proud to finally have our debut 7" out on Grave Mistake. After having been sold as a very limited tape and 7" during our October mini-tour in the UK, the real thing is here. Alex Grave Mistake has been a real champ in fighting to get this one out despite a vinyl pressing plant fucking up time and time again, and we can't thank him enough for sticking to it, as well as making the release look as good as it does. The EP is pressed in 1000 copies, out of which some a red and for mailorder only. Note that this isn't a pre-order or anything, the EP is out.

Check out two songs on Grave Mistake's bandcamp

Order the EP from Grave Mistake's webstore.

We are just weeks away from our first European tour, with all that means with gathering information, printing merch, considering cover-songs and getting incredibly stoked on travelling, hanging out, playing, meeting old and new friends and hopefully catching some sun. Come on out!

We will not rest

Sectarian Violence is five hardcore punks that come from three different countries. Through touring, arranging shows and doing fanzines we got to know each other and came to realize that we wanted to do a band together. A band that would throw hardcore and straight edge into a social and political context.

We come from countries that are enormously rich but lay all the burdens of capitalist stagnation on the working class, the poor and the socially downcast. At the same time, the wealth of our countries is to large extents built upon a ruthless exploitation of the countries and people of the third world. An exploitation that rests on imperialist war and economic blackmail.

In one sense, Sectarian Violence is just a straight edge hardcore band. We want to write songs with fast parts and breakdowns. We want to release those songs on vinyl and then put those releases on merchtables during tours, so we can meet and talk to old and new friends along the roads of different continents. We love this shit.

But maybe we can also tell some truths along the way. Maybe we can turn some heads. Instigate some discussion. Provoke some thought. Raise some issues that we consider important. Perhaps we can contribute to the elimination of a disturbing pattern of complacency and disregard for social and political issues in the contemporary hardcore scene.
