The Used Announces New Album ‘The Canyon’

The Used Announces New Album 'The Canyon'

Produced by Ross Robinson (The Cure, At The Drive In), their new 17-track album is supposed to be their most raw, unadulterated, and personal piece of art that the band has ever released.

The Canyon will take fans on a lyrical journey through the intimate psyche of Bert McCracken. Ben shared about the album saying, “I’ve learned as an artist that a great idea is such a gift. If I don’t stop whatever it is I’m doing, even if while driving, if I don’t pull over at that moment, then maybe I didn’t deserve the idea to begin with.”

He continued saying, “I learned to respect and worship the ideas in that way, that they are and will always be something sacred. Stopping in that moment was a brand new approach for us during this process.”

Over the last 15 years The Used have released a collection of albums that have shaped the space of the alternative rock scene. According to Ben, this record is “a moment of silence for what’s real.”

And if you’re excited for their new album, we have MORE good news for you! The Used will also be on tour this Fall with Glassjaw, and if you purchase a ticket you will receive a digital download of the their new album, The Canyon, upon release date. The Used have also released a new music video, “Over and Over Again”, which you can check out by scrolling down!
