THE USED Announce Co-Headlining Tour with SLEEPING WITH SIRENS This Fall!
Rock icons The Used have announced they will be hitting the road this fall on a cross-country headlining tour joined by special guests Sleeping With Sirens and Dead American. The tour will be making 24 stops throughout the United States, kicking off on September 5 in Birmingham and making stops in Boston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Denver, and more before wrapping up in Paso Robles on October 11. Tickets go on sale on June 30 at 10am local time.
The Used’s recently released their newest album, Toxic Positivity. Described as a “day-in-the-life journey of a depressed, anxiety-ridden person” by vocalist Bert McCracken, the tell-all record shares the highs and lows of depression and addiction through a cohesive body of work, speaking to the ever-changing headspace that he was experiencing at the time of writing. “This record is quite tough for me to listen to,” he adds, “because it’s a reflection of times in my life that have been some of my lowest ever.”
Sleeping With Sirens released their most recent album, Complete Collapse, in October 2022. The sixth studio album finds the band continuing to hone their mix of unflinchingly honest lyricism, unforgettable riffs, and pulse-pounding percussion while boldly exploring new creative frontiers. On Complete Collapse, Sleeping With Sirens cut straight to the bone, as they process life in modern times.
For as long as he can remember, McCracken has used music as an outlet to lay bare his innermost thoughts and emotions. For 23 years, that writing has enabled The Used to deeply resonate with fans the world over. Exploding off the back of universally adored rock anthems such as “The Taste Of Ink,” “Take It Away” and “Pretty Handsome Awkward,” the many millions of streams and record sales (including the platinum-certified The Used and In Love And Death) their career has yielded are one thing; the human connection formed between artist and audience is priceless, however. To that end alone, The Used can consider themselves four of the luckiest and richest men in music.
Toxic Positivity speaks of the strength of the band’s collective collaboration and also their innate, unquenchable thirst to create. “I think we have no choice but to write and write and write,” says McCracken. “It has always just been in us, and we’ve had to get it out. I read a quote once that said you either work your entire lifetime on four great pieces, or you write thousands of pieces and become great that way. Everything that we feel, I think it always makes for a good song.”
The band recently wrapped up tour in support of Toxic Positivty on a co-headlining North American trek with Pierce The Veil, Don Broco and DeathByRomy. You can check out the SHOW REVIEW I DID HERE!
