In a short statement on their facebook page Decline The Fall announced: "We are super excited to officially announce that we are back to having a full line up!

Please welcome Giuseppe Taormina on guitars and Gregor Korošec on bass! ( You'll be getting to know them a little better very soon)

We got used to each other pretty fast as we were already working on releasing our second full length studio album. So photoshoots, music video filming and making sure we can play all our music perfectly together was a good way to break the ice".
