The Used Return With New Album, The Canyon

There’s a strange new video, too, for Over And Over Again.

The Used’s seventh studio album, The Canyon, is coming on October 27, via Hopeless Records. Produced by Ross Robinson, it features 17 tracks and was recorded directly to tape, “as live”, for the band’s most raw and intimate-feeling LP yet.

Says frontman Bert McCracken of The Canyon’s creative process:

“I’ve learned as an artist that a great idea is such a gift. If I don’t stop whatever it is I’m doing, even if while driving, if I don’t pull over at that moment, then maybe I didn’t deserve the idea to begin with. I learned to respect and worship the ideas in that way, that they are and will always be something sacred. Stopping in that moment was a brand new approach for us during this process.”

The album’s announcement coincides with the release of a (slightly odd) video for the track Over And Over Again. Check it out, below.
