Decline has released a new single from the forthcoming EP “Own Your Words”, titled “Deteriorate”.
“Hardcore for us has always been as much about the message as it is the music. Along those lines, Deteriorate is the first song put out there off our 7” and it deals with the the pressures men and women face to attain the “perfect body” that movies and magazines tell us we need to have.” -Drummer Chad Rapper

Hey everyone! We thought it would be really cool to do a quick limited version of some Cutting Through and Treason shirts while we gear up for the pre-orders for both records. These are just $6 each and only available for the next 48 hours. They will begin shipping next week. We will not print these designs again, enjoy!
We are thrilled to announce that we have added Cincinnati’s own Treason the the New Age Records Family.
Hardcore is alive and well in 2017…
Hailing from Cincinnati, OH, Treason was formed out of necessity. With hardcore roots going back decades, the band felt a sense of obligation to represent the hardcore community and give back to what has given them such memories and purpose. Formed in 2017, Treason has members of Suffocate Faster, LAW, Culture, One Nation Under and Blood Has Been Shed, giving the band its own uniqueness both in sound and message.
“I remember coming up and buying anything New Age Records put out. Back in the stone age there was no internet or band camps. You bought records based on word of mouth and what the labels were pumping out. It’s an honor for us to be on releasing a record on a label that has given so much to our community and continues to share new bands with everyone” said Rich Thurston.
New Age Records founder Mike Hartsfield said, “I was so excited when Rich approached us as a possible home for Treason. We haven’t had many heavy hardcore bands recently on the label. Sometimes people forget New Age was the foundation for bands like Unbroken & Mean Season. We are thrilled to have Treason as part of the family”.
The debut 12” EP will be released this summer as the band sets out for numerous live shows in support as well as playing at this year’s “This Is Hardcore” fest.
