The Used

A name synonymous with the alternative rock scene they have helped build, The Used have entered into a new chapter of their lives, both musically and personally. Their seventh studio album, The Canyon, released on Hopeless Records last fall is a 17-track piece of art that takes fans on a lyrical journey through the intimate psyche of Bert McCracken. Written out of pain and loss, The Canyon is tragic and haunting while also having a sense of light and energy that is unlike anything this band has put forward. While keeping the heavy hitting melodies and gut wrenching lyrics that The Used is known for, this is the most visceral and personal piece of art the band has ever released. McCracken tells us “That’s what this record is – it’s a moment of silence for what’s real.”
