As the third installment in their Gentrification series, which started in 2014, Street Sects will release a new two-song EP on August 2nd via The Flenser.
Titled Gentrification III: Death and Displacement, the A-side track “Goodbye Recidivist Road” is streaming below.
Street Sects released Gentrification I: The Morning After the Night We Raped Death in January of 2017. This two song 7″ was the first of a planned five part series titled Gentrification: A Serial Album. In June of the same year they released Gentrification II: Broken Windows, Sunken Ceilings. After the second single was released, Street Sects was approached by San Francisco based record label The Flenser, and they switched gears to begin working on a full length for the label — End Position. One release led to another, and the final three installments of the Gentrification series were put on hold, indefinitely.
Now, five years later, in the wake of the release of their more melodic and melancholic sophomore LP The Kicking Mule, Street Sects have returned to the serial album that started it all to pick up where they left off.
