The band's new album is due out this Friday, and they say The Canyon is the most raw work they have released to date.

“A lot of the record has been this dueling, Yin-Yang type of happy/sad,” McCracken has said previously. "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."

Listen to the charged new track, and corresponding powerful new music video, below:

The Canyon is due out Oct. 27 via Hopeless Records, and if “Rise Up Lights” and the record’s first single, "Over And Over Again,” are any indication, we're sure it's going to be incredible. You can give a listen to “Over And Over Again” here.

The Used announced that they will be hitting the road this fall with support from Glassjaw, and you can check out the full list of cities and dates below.  

The band released their sixth studio album, Imaginary Enemy, in 2014. The band released their live album, Live & Acoustic at the Palace, in 2016, which was recorded at their show at Palace in Los Angeles.

You can preorder The Canyon here.
