Biography - New Age
With the addition of new Drummer Ray Phillpott, UK Decay reformed for two comeback shows in 2008. The first was in the band's home town of Luton in July and the second was at the Drop Dead Festival in Lisbon in October. Since then Decay have gone on to headline a short tour of Italy, headline the Parkbuhne stage at WGT in Leipzig and play the Rebellion Festival in the UK.

In mid-2009 the band's back catalogue finally found its way onto CD, including the album For Madmen Only, the Rising from the Dread 12" and various singles.

They are currently finalizing dates in Berlin, Hamburg and Hannover for April 2010, plus planning further German dates in October. 

Decay have also started writing and recording their first new material in 30 years, with CD and download release planned for early 2010.
