Get Used To It, The Used Are Back!

To celebrate their 15 year anniversary, The Used are hitting the road again.

 

They’ll be playing two shows per city in North America so it’s time to book your plane tickets now super fans. The band will be performing ‘Self-Titled’ and ‘In Love and Death’ in their entirety plus more each evening.

If that wasn’t enough awesomeness, they will also be releasing, ‘Live and Acoustic at The Palace’, a live CD/DVD which will be out April 1, 2016(No Joke).  The album was recorded at the band’s unplugged storyteller performance, which took place at The Palace Theatre in LA last month.  Fans who were unable to attend the once in a lifetime performance will have the chance to experience it now! You can already pre-order at www.theused.net

Lead singer Bert McCracken shared about the new live release, "I think we really captured the night perfectly and listening back to the mixes it reminded me how music can allow us to be children once again and once you open yourself up to that emotion it's like a virus, it's contagious.” He continued, “Nearly every eye in the venue was weepy the night we played with the orchestra because these songs are so emotional and this recording is a truly special thing that I can't wait for everyone to hear. It still gives me goose bumps."

In order to fully recontextualize these songs, the group worked with Hiro Goto on the strings and harp. Together, they arranged the various musical elements and helped the band bring out dimensions in these songs that they didn't even know existed. "The whole time we were making this I couldn't believe it was happening," McCracken explains, adding that 3 gospel singers and instruments like the harp helped these songs take on an entirely different emotional resonance than the post-hardcore, guitar-driven dynamics that initially propelled them. "I'm so proud of this band for working hard to pull this off and at same time I feel like this is what we deserve because we worked so hard to get here that it felt like a victory lap in a lot of ways."
