About The Used With Sleeping with Sirens, Dead American
The Used recently released their newest album, Toxic Positivity. Described as a “day-in-the-life journey of a depressed, anxiety-ridden person” by vocalist Bert McCracker, the tell-all record shares the highs and lows of depression and addition through a cohesive body of work, speaking to the ever-changing headspace that he was experiencing at the time of writing. “This record is quite tough for me to listen to,” he adds, “because it’s a reflection of times in my life that have been some of my lowest ever.” Toxic Positivity speaks to the strength of the band’s collective collaboration and also their innate unquenchable thirst to create. “I think we have no choice but to write and write and write,” says McCracken. “It has always just been in us, and we’ve had to get it out. I read a quote once that said you either work your entire lifetime on four great pieces, or you write thousands of pieces and become great that way. Everything that we feel, I think it always makes for a good song." The Used is Bert McCracken (vocals), Jepha (bass), Dan Whitesides (drums) and Joey Bradford (guitar).
