The Used’s eighth album, Heartwork, is out on April 24, and looks to be a return to form for the band.

The new album plays on the emotions, the sincerity, and the vulnerability of the first record and In Love and Death, with a little bit of the flair from Lies for the Liars,” frontman Bert McCracken said. Standing in the streaming circle pit with Kesha and Halsey, the album is just as modern sounding.” 

You can still catch Sum 41, Don Broco, NOFX, Billy Talent, While She Sleeps and many other bands at Slam Dunk this year on these dates:


23 Leeds Temple Newsam
24 Hatfield Park
