At the beginning of 2015,  it was revealed that Allman would be taking a temporary, year-long leave from the band, and that Shekoski would serve as his fill-in.

“Nothing can ever change, or detract from the magic of the relationships that helped create the music that is The Used. For these beautiful memories, we will be forever grateful. 

As a result of mutual understanding, Quinn will not be returning to the band and Justin Shekoski will be taking his place. 

The journey so far has been amazing and we continue to feel very positive about what lies ahead in the future.

As always, can't wait to see you on the road! 

Love, The Used”
