DS Photo Gallery: Civil War Rust, The Decline, Yankee Brutal at Night Lights, Oakland, CA (10.2.15)

The first Friday of October brought me to the streets of Oakland to check out Dying Scene favorites Yankee Brutal, Australia’s The Decline, and local heroes Civil War Rust at the intimate bar/venue Night Lights off Broadway. There was immense traffic due to the SF Giants game that night, so by the time I rolled up to the venue, local band/openers Drunk-Dial had just finished their set.

Sacramento’s Yankee Brutal is in the process of recording a new album, however the bulk of the band’s set was sourced from their highly-acclaimed debut album “The Everlasting Greed”. The band loves playing fast – like, as fast as they can. Sometimes this leads to some beat/rhythm problems, but the band always manages to quickly get back on point. The guys began their set with the opening track “Facedown”, and it was mayhem from the first chord. Some of my other favorites played include title track “Everlasting Greed”, “Revolt”, “Modern World”, “United Strangnant”, and more. It had been a couple years since I had seen these guys live, and it was really nice to see how they’ve progressed. The heat in the upstairs venue was now near reaching a boiling point, just in time for a set break and the opportunity for everyone to run downstairs and catch some fresh air before the Aussies took the stage.

Next up was Perth, Australia’s The Decline. This was my first time seeing these guys and it was a great performance. The band recently released their newest LP “Resister”, this past June through Pee Records, and their setlist was comprised mainly of the new tracks. “Giving Up Is A Gateway Drug”, “Camberwell Street”, and “Underworld Tour” are just some of the tracks which showcase the band’s grit yet melody. At times out of control, at times melodic and ‘poppy’, The Decline does well in blending several styles into a cohesive sound. The band even graced our eardrums with a little NOFX cover!

Civil War Rust were the headliners for the night, bringing the loud, fast-paced, energetic and sometimes frantic night of punk to an end. The fans were loving the set, and by the end of it were up on stage sharing the mic with the band. These guys represent the best things in modern punk – great breaks, ripping guitar riffs, driving bass lines, and gritty yet melodic vocals. Listen to a track like “Mayday”, and you’re convinced. The guys have a great stage presence too, not afraid to raise a guitar in the air or trash around on stage. I always appreciate bands that set the energy level for the fans. One of my highlights of the night was when the band covered one of my favorite Cock Sparrer songs “Take ‘Em All”. Colin & co. would be proud. Civil War Rust has a new album in the works, entitled “Help Wanted”. Stay tuned for updates as they become available.

Have a look at all of the night’s photos below. Thanks to Wesley, and the boys in Decline, for a memorable night.

Album Review: The Decline – “Resister”

The Decline have been through some things lately. Earlier this year the band introduced new guitarist/vocalist Ben Elliot and bassist Ray Chiu just months after the departures of Dan Cribb and Nathan Cooper. A lineup change can sometimes have a drastic effect on a band, but on Resister, The Decline’s third studio album and first with their new members, the band proves that they’re still worth your time.

The album kicks off with the fittingly titled “New Again,” and in just under two minutes cast any doubts regarding the chemistry of the new members aside: It’s fast, catchy, and sets the mood for the rest of the album, which stays consistent throughout. The band still allows pop culture to permeate their music, from the Chasing Amy and The Empire Strikes Back sound clips in “I Don’t Believe” and “Start Again” (another appropriately titled track) respectively, to the title of “The Blurst of Times” and it creates a sense of familiarity for newcomers and old fans alike.

In fact, the album does such a good job at keeping The Decline on the same path that it doesn’t do much to expand their sound. Sure, there’s the barbershop quartet intro to “Wrecking Ball”, but despite its title Resister does very little to go against the grain. But since this is the studio debut of not one, but two, new members, maybe it’s for the best that The Decline sticks to what they know for now.

The Decline’s primary goal with Resister is to prove that the band can still churn out the same melodic tunes just as well as before, and on that end it’s incredibly successful. It’s catchy enough to stand with the best of their back catalogue, and even at 15 songs it doesn’t overstay its welcome. Don’t fight it, give Resister a chance.

3.5 / 5 – Listen below.

New Episode of Dying Scene Radio featuring The Decline and The Jasons

This week on Dying Scene RadioBob Noxious and Bobby Pickles say “good morning” to Pat Decline, guitarist/lead singer of the Aussie punk act, The Decline, who’s on the line from the downunder, sporting a winter beanie cap and eating a Vegemite sandwich. Pat has difficulty skirting around certain topics, as his quick witted Kiwi sarcasm becomes no match for Bobby’s powerful pseudo-intellectual questioning. The two Bobs also speak with two Jasons, when the driveling duo welcomes guitarist/lead singer Jason V and bassist Jason 3D, half of the Crystal Lake, NJ horror-pop-punk band The Jasons. They’re four mongoloid brothers who enjoy pissing people off with their immature antics and playing pure Red-Blooded American Punk Rock. They may not sound exactly how you might think they would…but we’ll let you be the judge of that. Episode 22’s recurring theme: backslashes and throat slashes.

Hear all the raucous, shameful yet lighthearted prattling below.
