Hadn't listened to The Used in years when I saw this released. Absolutely loved from first listen. I love how their style has developed as a theatrical rock/metal/pop hybrid.
Favorite track: Paradise Lost, a poem by John Milton.
After months of anticipation and teasing with fans, The Used have officially announced they will be releasing their 8th full length studio album, Heartwork, on April 24th via Hassle Records (UK/Europe) and Big Noise (Rest of World).
On Heartwork, Bert McCracken shares:
“The new album plays on the emotions, the sincerity, and the vulnerability of the first record and In Love and Death, with a little bit of the flair from Lies for the Liars. Standing in the streaming circle-pit with Kesha and Halsey, the album is just as modern sounding. John Feldmann’s production is that professional. It sounds really good. Those are two really random examples, but I think if you listen to both of those records, the songs are all over the place: dance, pop, actual punk rock riffs and drums. I think music is so all over the place right now that The Used fits in perfectly.”
The Used is Bert McCracken (Vocals), Jeph Howard (Bass), Dan Whitesides (Drums) and Joey Bradford (Guitar).
