Hopeless Records is excited to announce that we have partnered with The Used and their label, Anger Music Group to release their highly anticipated follow up to 2009’s Artwork.
The final touches are being made to the album which will be released in the Spring of 2012. Vulnerable will be the bands 5th studio album.
Already chosen as one of Alternative Press Magazine’s Most Anticipated of 2012, front man Bert McCracken explains, “Vulnerable is about taking one step back and two steps forward. The sound of the record is as evolved as it possibly could be, it maintains the same emotional integrity as the first record [2002’s The Used], yet it sounds like the future (and the future sounds bright). Vulnerable is about taking a chance to let the real you shine. This record is for the outcasts, the misfits, the misunderstood, and the ones who have always dared to be themselves. I can’t wait for you to hear it.”
Forming in 2001 and hailing from Orem, Utah, The Used have released four studio albums: The Used, In Love And Death, Lies for the Liars and Artwork. Their self-titled debut, In Love And Death and Lies for the Liars have all been certified Gold by the RIAA. The band has performed on the Vans Warped Tour, Taste Of Chaos, Ozzfest and Projekt Revolution and have toured with bands such as Atreyu, Chiodos, Box Car Racer, Three Days Grace, Glassjaw, Green Day and Andrew WK.
