Track of the Day: The Decline “It Was Always You” (2019)

Perth skate punks The Decline are just a couple of weeks away from dropping their new album Flash Gordon Ramsay Street, and we’ve been treated to a taste of what’s to come, with latest single “It Was Always You“!

Guitarist and vocalist Pat Decline says the track is “… a shameless love song that is also about being afraid of flying. It’s about the love-hate relationship with airports and planes because they suck, but they also take you to amazing places. We had a 45 minute stop over in Peru at 3am on our way to South America for the We Are One tour in 2017, and I remember feeling like it was the furthest I’d ever been from home. We came back to Lima, Peru a week later to play a show and I wrote this song in the hotel bathroom.”

With the album due out on August 30th, get your The Decline fix now – check out “It Was Always You” (and its video homage to Tony Hawk Pro Skater) below!
