After Completing production on 2 albums for Internal Affairs, Decline appeared on albums by Virtue, Overit and various Olive Hour Records releases. An album made over a weekend with Concept entitled "Shakespeare Falling" came soon thereafter. This impressive catalogue of music is complimented by Sportsnets' BMX show "Ride On" which features the music of Decline.
