The Decline announce new EP And National Tour

The DeclineRabble-rousing, good times WA skate-punks The Decline are stoked to announce they’ll be unleashing a fresh 5-track EP and kicking off a national tour real soon. Pee Records are proud to present the fully crowd-funded, fully sick ‘Can I Borrow A Feeling?’ EP.

More than 8 years in and two albums deep, The Decline are a respected and recognisable name amongst the international punk community. 2013 was a stand-out year for the local stalwarts; they supported long time heroes Descendents, undertook a month-long European outing, a Japanese tour with 90’s So-Cal super-band Implants (members of Strung Out, Pulley) and an epic Australian tour with Isreali punkers Useless ID. These efforts earned them a WAMi nomination in the punk/hardcore category and ensured they came out of the gates strong in 2014, nabbing a coveted afternoon slot at the Perth Soundwave festival. It’s clear that the force rages strong with these guys.

Dark Tranquility announce Australian Tour – March 2014

Dark Tranquillity will finally be returning to tour Australia; it will be their first time back here since 2006. One of the pioneers of the Swedish Gothenburg Melodic Death Metal scene of the time, and, an iconic namesake in their own right, Dark Tranquillity has evolved into far more than a pigeon holed stereotype act akin to the region which has defined a genre of its own. Dark Tranquillity is the complete package; they have that emotional and captivating groove laden sound with enough melodic and crisp guitars which is nowadays filled with melancholic thought provoking hooks and music score; they have a charisma and aura uniquely defined and attached to everything they do; they are, in the true sense, standing alone yet leading the way for the evolution and continuation of acts that spawned from Sweden born of the Gothenburg Melodic Death Metal mould. Dark Tranquillity is entrenched in the hearts and souls of a gripping cross section demographic.

A Day To Remember and Underoath – Australian Tour – May 2011 [Tour News]

With Brisbane selling out in under a day we are thrilled to announce that the Sydney show has now sold out as well! Never one for resting on their laurels, A Day To Remember will now be playing a second and definitely FINAL Sydney show on Saturday 14 May at the Big Top, Luna Park.


The ability to evolve and push boundaries has never been more important than it is now. While the mainstream becomes safer, the dynamic, genre-bending acts are driven underground, to be discovered by a whole new generation of music fans not content with the identikit bands pushed at them through the major media. It is this hallowed place that A DAY TO REMEMBER has not-so-subtly taken over, from stereos to mosh pits across the world.
