The Used have cancelled their upcoming Slam Dunk Festival performances so Bert McCracken can take some time to focus on his mental health. He said the following about that:
“I have always been open about my struggle with mental health and have recently found myself facing new and overwhelming challenges. For this reason, I won’t be able to play the upcoming shows at Slam Dunk. I am so sorry but needed to make this decision to focus on professional treatment and self-care. Performing live for The Used fans is once of my greatest joys, and I can’t imagine doing anything else. We have the best fans in the world, thank you for your undying support. With love, Robbie and The Used“

The Used have premiered a new song titled “The Lottery.” This track features Beartooth’s Caleb Shomo and it will appear on the band’s new album “Heartwork,” which is set to be released tomorrow (April 24).
While discussing the song with Kerrang!, Bert McCracken said Shomo “jumped at the opportunity and devoured the concept like a wild animal.” He continued:
“He even recorded his parts in his green room in NYC right before he went onstage. The result is one of the heaviest songs in The Used catalog. And if you haven’t yet read the short story The Lottery by Shirley Jackson, you’re in for a real treat!”
“I got hit up to do it while on tour and I was all in: thankfully I had a recording rig with me. Bert sent me the song, lyrics and concept, and gave me the freedom to do anything I wanted with my part. It was pretty intimidating to lay it down on the road but I’m very happy with how it turned out – and I think everyone is! The song’s a banger. Jam it loud.”
The Used have premiered a new song titled “Big, Wanna Be.” This track is from the band’s new album “Heartwork,” which will be released on April 24.
Bert McCracken told Spin the following about the song:
“‘Big, Wanna Be‘ I think is a really sardonic and sarcastic look at the world of ‘influencing’ in general. I think it really speaks to the soul of what humanity has lost with Instagram influencers. It’s been going on for a long time, but it’s been elevated with Instagram and social media. They’re platforms that make people feel jealous, but that feeling of jealousy can’t be reciprocated on the other side.
You can’t feel someone feeling jealous, so it’s just this weird confusing conundrum that’s a horrible situation for humans to be stuck in. But it’s also kind of a light message about pushing yourself, as I just started working out with resistance training about a year ago, so in a roundabout joking kind of way it’s also about how I want to become way larger than I’m capable of becoming.”
The Used have premiered a new song titled “The Lighthouse.” This track features Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus and it will appear on the band’s new album “Heartwork,” which is set to be released on April 24.
Bert McCracken told Grammy.com the following about working with Hoppus:
“…We’ve toured with tons of big bands, Blink‘s one of the biggest, but they’ve also been one of the most generous and humble and down to earth and caring and kind. It’s crazy touring with a band that would strike the entire stage for your gear, and just going out of the way to always be really, really sweet to us.
It’s amazing to get to be in the studio and to experience his creative mind. He’s a different kind of writer. He is really quick fire. It’s really cool to watch him work like that. And yeah, he’s pretty legendary, even for someone who’s outside of the whole world of pop-punk it’s still like, oh, huge deal.
So, we’re beyond excited and yeah, it was a pleasure. I think it was a long time coming, but it was an absolute pleasure. We did a couple of songs with him, so there’s some unreleased stuff that will be out later on as well.”
The Used have premiered a new song titled “Bloody Nose.” This track is from the band’s new album “Heartwork,” which will be released on April 24.
Bert McCracken told High Times the following about the song:
“This is like a classic Used jam to me. I think The Used has always written powerful songs about what it takes to get up after you’ve been knocked down, and I think that’s something that everybody can relate to no matter where you’re at in your life or what kind of person you are, what kind of background you come from… I think that little tiny moments of setting a goal and reaching your goal… those little victories, especially after hardships, or after a failure those are the types of songs that we kind of all live for. You can turn it on and feel powerful, feel like this surge of inspiration.
What I love about ‘Bloody Nose’ is this record, it has so many different colors, and so many different types of songs, and sounds, and you go from ‘BIG’ which is, you know, it’s so full of production, and the drum track sounds like like weights being lifted, and all these other crazy sounds, to ‘Bloody Nose’, which sounds like a Used song just straight from the stage—it sounds like what The Used sounds like live.
For everyone I’ve shared the record with, and kind of passed it around amongst my friends, ‘Bloody Nose’ is a friend and family fave!”
