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”.

Cutting Through have been busy recording their new record “A Will To Change” and began mixing today. The 8 song 12” ep will be available this summer.
New Age Records is excited to announce that Seattle, Washington’s Safe and Sound has joined the New Age Records family and are currently working on a follow up to their “Embers Still Remain” EP (2016). The 7” titled “Ashes Lie and Wait” is due to be released this summer on New Age Records.
Safe and Sound formed in 2012 when a group of young straight edge kids that wanted to play “Youth Crew/Early 2000’s”-influenced hardcore. The band played at Rainiest in 2013 and since then, Safe and Sound has toured the west coast of the U.S., Texas as well as Western Canada. In 2014, they released their first 7” record titled “The Tides”. In 2016, they released their second 7” record “Embers Still Remain” and a music video for their song “Dream”.
Safe and Sound caught the eyes and ears of New Age Records staff at the “Standing Hard” fest 2016 and the gears were set in motion to work together.
New Age Records is a hardcore punk record label located in Southern California. New Age is owned by Mike Hartsfield who began the label in 1988 and released bands such as Unbroken, Lifetime, Turning Point and Mouthpiece.
