The Used is an alternative rock band from Utah. They rose to fame in 2002 after releasing their self-titled album. They released their fourth and most recent album “Artwork” in August 2009. In AP magazine, Bert stated “This record is about coming to grips with how much you really hate yourself and knowing you can never hate yourself to the full extent, so you’re free to hate yourself as much as you want to.” He also says “we haven’t been this excited about an album since our self titled back in 2002.”

The Used is currently touring in support of their new album. They also plan to play more dates in 2010. The band has achieved both Gold and Platinum statuses in more than six countries worldwide.
