The Used have released a short video teasing new album, The Canyon. In the video, frontman Bert McCracken explains the meaning behind the album, and how personal it is to him.
‘Growing up in Utah, you grow up very near many canyons,’ he said. ‘[The] most precious moments of my childhood and my fondest memories are of times with my family and my friends in the canyon.’
‘My friend took his life in the same canyon about six or seven months ago, so a lot of the record has been this duelling, Yin Yang type of happy-sad.’
‘…[We’re] trying to understand mortality and maybe the bigger questions that we ask, why we might be here and what it’s all about.’
You can watch the full video below.
The song in the background of the video is ‘Over And Over Again’, the first single to be released for The Canyon. Listen to it here.
The Canyon is out on the 27th October via Hopeless Records.
