The Used Releases First New Single In Two Years

Jason Bullinger for Alternative Revolt

The Used have released a new single today titled “Blow Me (Feat. Jason Aalon Butler).”

“The Used are proud to present our new song ‘Blow Me’ featuring Jason Aalon Butler from FEVER 333,” says McCracken about the new single. “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!”

“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,'” states Butler about discovering Used. “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 Used fans — they’re back again. In a BIG fucking way.”

“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.”
