The response to the new album and tour has been overwhelmingly positive, with support pouring out from the likes of Alternative Press, HM Magazine, Substream Magazine, Billboard, Huffington Post, Brooklyn Vegan, Time Out NY and more. The band’s single “Cry” has been in heavy rotation on Sirius XM‘s Faction and Octane channels. Watch the music video for “Cry” here:

The Used-which also includes guitarist Quinn Allman, bassist Jeph Howard and drummer Dan Whitesides formed in Orem, Utah in 2001, signing to Reprise Records that same year. Championed by producer and collaborator John Feldmann, the band issued their gold-certified Self-Titled debut in 2002, quickly cementing the Used as leaders among the post-hardcore elite, thanks in part to unforgettable singles like “Box Full of Sharp Objects,” “The Taste of Ink,” “Blue And Yellow” and “Buried Myself Alive.” The band then released the CD/DVD combo Maybe Memoriesin 2003, now certified platinum, featuring B-sides, live cuts, demos and unreleased tracks, while still another gold record followed-2004’s In Love And Death”-spawning singles “Take It Away,” “I Caught Fire” and “All That I’ve Got” – which earned the band their first MuchMusic Video Award nomination.
