THE USED announce nationwide headlining tour

Burbank, CA – Fresh from a successful international run, Reprise Records artists The Used have announced a US headlining winter tour.  The nationwide string of dates, which kick off January 27th in San Diego, CA and run through February 26th in Birmingham, AL, will support their new album, Artwork.  Atreyu and Drive A will be supporting.
Critical acclaim for the Matt Squire-produced Artwork is effusive.  Outburn (which the band recently graced the cover of) praises its “humbling ability to sound scrappy and raw while being perfectly polished and huge,” while Alternative Press states “The Used have delivered not only the definitive album of their career but arguably one of the best records you’ll hear in 2009. 4 ½ stars.”
The band’s legions of fans are responding as well.  The Used performed to a sold-out crowd on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and the first single, “Blood On My Hands” premiered on iTunes with over 5k downloads in the first day, the highest digital debut in the band’s history.  The video for the song debuted on MySpace and shot directly to the #1 spot, with 200,000 views in the first 24 hours.  The Used recently released the music video for their international single “Empty With You,” directed by Nate Weaver. “Empty With You” can be seen on
In honor of the holidays, the official Used store has marked down nearly all merchandise, including new designs.  All orders of $50 or more will receive free shipping.  Visit The Used’s official store at
