“Blow Me” is the first new music The Used have released in two years. They are currently working on their eighth full-length album.
The Used are fucking back, spitting venom and gnashing teeth about a very real issue. The song “Blow Me” explores the consequences of gun violence and the harsh realities therein.
“Whether metaphorically signifying the power of words in general or magnifying concern for the situation of societal gun violence, we urge the fans of our music to find individual and personal meaning in all of our songs.” Bert McCracken says. Watch and enjoy The Used’s return with “Blow Me” in the video below.
In addition to being a banger, the song and video both feature Jason Aalon Butler who couldn’t be happier to appear on a track with The Used.
“If I’m being honest, I’ve been a fan of [The Used] since the first single they put on an Atticus Clothing comp CD back in 2002,” Jason Aalon Butler says. “I heard Box Full Of Sharp Objects and thought, ‘This is it. This is the next step in heavier music with melodic sensibility.”
“I loved it. I studied it.” Butler continues. “Then I met the man that produced it, John Feldmann. Loved him. Studied him. Then a couple of months ago I was asked by the band and John to sing on a track from the new album. They played me some songs and, no bullshit, I got that feeling I felt when I first heard Box Full on that comp 17 years ago. For any and all The Used fans; they’re back again. In a big fucking way.”
