The Used have been in the studio working on their eighth studio album, which is expected to release in 2020 through Big Noise. The band has released the first single from the upcoming album. The song is called “Blow Me” and it features Fever 333‘s Jason Aalon Butler.
The Used vocalist Bert McCracken offered the following on the track:
“The Used are proud to present our new song ‘Blow Me‘ featuring Jason Aalon Butler from Fever 333. Whether metaphorically signifying the power of words in general, or magnifying concern for the situation of societal gun violence, we urge the fans of our music to find individual and personal meaning in all of our songs. Thank you, and please enjoy!”
Fever 333‘s Jason Aalon Butler, who is the guests on the song, also commented:
“If I’m being honest, I’ve been a fan of this band since the first single they put on an Atticus Clothing comp CD back in 2002. I heard ‘Box Full Of Sharp Objects‘ and thought- ‘This is it. This is the next step in heavier music with melodic sensibility. I loved it. I studied it. Then I met the man that produced it, John Feldmann. Loved him. Studied him.
Then- a couple months ago I was asked by the band and John to sing on a track from the new album. They played me some songs and, no bullshit, I got that feeling I felt when I first heard ‘Box Full‘ on that comp 17 years ago. For any and all The Used fans – they’re back again. In a BIG fucking way.”
