Western Australian skate-punks (and obviously excellent fans of The Simpsons) The Decline have announced the release of their new EP, Can I Borrow A Feeling?, and a national launch tour.

It’s not yet clear whether the five-track EP’s lyrics will mimic Kirk Van Houten’s declarations of undying love for Luann, but it has to be a good laugh either way. And The Decline know what they’re doing, too – after over eight years of playing in sweaty bars around the country, and having released two albums, they’re at the vanguard of the west coast punk scene.

Can I Borrow A Feeling? is available for pre-order via Pee Records. See The Decline at Valve Bar on Saturday May 3 with support from Chris Duke and The Royals, Local Resident Failure and Faux Effects.
