Rock icons The Used have announced they will be releasing a Deluxe Edition of their eighth studio album Heartwork next Friday, September 10 via Big Noise. The album, produced by John Feldmann, will feature 11 new songs all written during the original Heartwork sessions with a variety of collaborators including Mark Hoppus (Blink-182), providing one seamless and complete look at this chapter of the iconic band’s career.
“Not a moment of our time in the studio for the Heartwork sessions was wasted. It seemed that every new day brought with it a song worth listening to. Therefore, we are beyond proud to present to you all of the songs that didn’t make the record; the entirety of the session. With love, THE USED”
Heartwork, originally released in 2020, arrived with the unbounded spirit of the pair of platinum albums that first introduced The Used to the world, mixed with the dramatic air of their gold-certified third, Lies for the Liars. The emotion, sincerity, and vulnerability found on The Used (2002) and In Love and Death (2004) is more urgent and insistent than ever on Heartwork, a diverse 16-song offering filled with self-examination, hyper-literate exploration, political pyromania, and keenly self-aware yet unrestrained whimsy. The band celebrated a strong first week, locking in #2 spots on both the Current Alternative and Record Label Independent Album charts, #3 on both Current Rock and Top Current Album charts as well as landing in the Billboard Top 200 at the #87 spot.

Established in 2000, The Used was brought to life and have since released a collection of albums that pioneered the scene of emo rock. High energy live shows, gut wrenching relatable lyrics, and melodies that blended pop sensibility and hard rock was the perfect combination to make an everlasting impression on fans globally.
The Used is Bert McCracken (Vocals), Jepha (Bass), Dan Whitesides (Drums) and Joey Bradford (Guitar).
