THE USED Release Music Video For New Single

The Used has released a music video for The Bird And The Worm today. This is the first single to be released off their upcoming CD/DVD Live and Acoustic at The Palace. Fans can watch the music video now above.

Live and Acoustic at The Palace is set to release on April 1, 2016. This album was recorded at the band’s intimate unplugged storyteller performance, which took place at The Palace Theater in Los Angeles last October. Fans who were unable to attend the once in a lifetime performance will have a chance to watch the band perform in a way they have never performed before — with a 4-piece string quartet and harpist (arranged by Hiro Goto), a piano player, percussion and a 3-piece gospel choir. Live and Acoustic at The Palace is available for pre-order now on the Bands Website.

In order to fully recontextualize the songs on Live and Acoustic at The Palace, The Used worked with Hiro Goto on the strings and harp. Together, they arranged the various musical elements and helped the band bring out dimensions in these songs that they didn’t even know existed. “The whole time we were making this I couldn’t believe it was happening,” McCracken explains, adding that 3 gospel singers and instruments like the harp helped these songs take on an entirely different emotional resonance than the post-hardcore, guitar-driven dynamics that initially propelled them.

“I’m so proud of this band for working hard to pull this off and at same time I feel like this is what we deserve because we worked so hard to get here that it felt like a victory lap in a lot of ways.”
