THE USED is currently finishing up its eighth full-length album, due out next year on Big Noise. "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," teases FEVER 333 frontman Jason Aalon Butler. "For any and all THE USED fans — they're back again. In a BIG fucking way."
This forthcoming album marks the return of John Feldmann to THE USED family as he is producing the album and also the head of A&R at Big Noise.
"I couldn't be more honored or grateful to have one of my favorite bands of all time at my record label! They are one of the most influential bands of the last 20 years and we are making a career-defining album at the minute," shares Feldmann. "They are one of the best live bands I've ever seen and Bert is quite possibly the best singer I've ever worked with. This has been a dream of mine since I met them in 2001."
Feldmann signed THE USED to Reprise Records in January 2002, one short year after the band formed in Orem, Utah. He also produced some of the band's most monumental albums, including their self-titled debut, "Maybe Memories", "In Love and Death", "Lies For The Liars", "Vulnerable" and "Imaginary Enemy". The upcoming album will mark THE USED's first release on Big Noise.
THE USED is Bert McCracken (vocals), Jeph Howard (bass), Dan Whitesides (drums) and Joey Bradford (guitar).
