The Used Premiere “Cathedral Bell,” New Album Out April 24th

The Used have released a brand new song titled “Cathedral Bell” this week, a treat for fans before the release of their album Heartwork on April 24th.

In an interview with Nylon, McCraken said:

“It reminds me of being a little kid. I had a really hard time with sleeping when I was younger. I just never wanted to go to bed, and when I did, I could never sleep. It just reminds me of being young and in the dark and up way past my bedtime.”

Heartwork, the band’s eighth studio album, will be released next Friday, April 24th via Big Noise. The album marks the return of John Feldmann to The Used family as he is producing the album and also the head of A&R at Big Noise.

“I couldn’t be more honored or grateful to have one of my favorite bands of all time at my record label! They are one of the most influential bands of the last 20 years and we are making a career-defining album at the minute,” shares Feldmann. “They are one of the best live bands I’ve ever seen and Bert is quite possibly the best singer I’ve ever worked with. This has been a dream of mine since I met them in 2001.”

Feldmann signed The Used to Reprise Records in January 2002, one short year after the band formed in Orem, Utah. He also produced some of the band’s most memorable albums including their self-titled debut, Maybe Memories, as well as in In Love and Death, Lies for the Liars, Vulnerable and Imaginary Enemy.

“The Used’s eighth album, due out on April 24 – arrives in a world that’s quite different from the one it was originally written in, but its message resonates now more than ever.” – NYLON
