With hardcore and straight edge roots stemming back over 25 years, Decline plays fast unapologetic old school hardcore reminiscent of some of the bands of that era. The band formed in 2013 and features former members of Haunted Life, Expired Youth, Noose and New Heart.

“To say we’re stoked to be on New Age Records would be an understatement for sure!” says drummer Chad Rapper. “Being involved with hardcore for as long as some of us have been, we fully understand the impact New Age has had on the hardcore scene. It’s one thing to know about a labels history but it’s another thing to have been there for it.  Having our name next to bands like Turning Point, Chorus of Disapproval, Outspoken and many more, is something we could never have imagined four years ago; we’re pretty grateful”.With hardcore and straight edge roots stemming back over 25 years, Decline plays fast unapologetic old school hardcore reminiscent of some of the bands of that era. The band formed in 2013 and features former members of Haunted Life, Expired Youth, Noose and New Heart.

“Own Your Words” hit the streets in mid 2018 and the band has been on a non stop routine of playing shows anywhere/everywhere.
