The Used—which includes singer Bert McCracken, guitarist Quinn Allman, bassist Jeph Howard and drummer Dan Whitesides formed in Orem, Utah in 2001, signing to Reprise Records that same year. Championed by producer and collaborator John Feldmann, the band issued their gold-certified Self-Titled debut in 2002, quickly cementing The Used as leaders among the post-hardcore elite, thanks in part to unforgettable singles like “Box Full of Sharp Objects”, “The Taste of Ink” and “Buried Myself Alive.” The band then released the CD/DVD combo “Maybe Memories” in 2003, (now certified platinum) featuring B-sides, live cuts, demos and unreleased tracks, while still another gold record followed—2004’s “In Love And Death”—spawning singles “Take It Away”, “All That I’ve Got” and “I Caught Fire.”

2007’s “Lies For The Liars”, hit #5 on the Billboard Top 200, led to 2009’s “Artwork”, which peaked at #10 on the Billboard Top 200. As if that weren’t enough to keep a band busy, since 2001 The Used has also destroyed countless stages the World over, touring with a who’s who of modern rock and heavy music contemporaries, and have been featured acts at major festivals like Warped Tour, Taste of Chaos, Ozzfest, Projekt Revolution and the UK’s Reading and Leeds festivals.
