The Used

Band: The Used

Album: Heartwork

VÖ: 24.04.2020

Label/Vertrieb: Hassle Records/ Membran


THE USED melden sich nach über zwei Jahren überraschend zurück und kündigen mit "Heartwork" ein brandneues Album für den 24. April an - erstmals auf dem renommierten Label Hassle Records.

Zeitgleich präsentiert die Band mit "Paradise Lost, a poem by John Milton" eine brandneue Single. Der Song wurde von John Feldman (GOLDFINGER, BLINK-182,  GOOD CHARLOTTE etc.) produziert.  

Sänger Bert McCracken kommentiert den Hintergrund:

"I’ve always been a bit obsessed with Paradise Lost. I really dug deep into the poem and its author, John Milton. As I was reading a lot of his political essays, I realized that a lot of what ’Satan’ says in Paradise Lost are quotes directly from John Milton’s own mouth. A lot of people thought he was the devil back then. He had a huge problem with the show of opulence from the Church. He thought it was disgusting. His poem is about the failed revolution against the Church of England, which is Satan’s failed revolution on earth. And what’s more incredible or exciting than a failed revolution?"

Ende 2019 veröffentlichten die Amerikaner den Album-Track "Blow Me" feat. FEVER 333-Frontmann Jason Aalon Butler. Bereits die Tracklist des Albums weist auf weitere spannende Gäste wie Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker (beide BLINK-182) und Caleb Shomo (BEARTOOTH) hin.
