Established in 2000, The Used have since released a collection of albums that pioneered the scene of emo rock and made an everlasting impression on fans worldwide. Consisting of Bert McCracken (vocals), Jepha (bass), Dan Whitesides (drums) and Joey Bradford (guitar), the band is revered for high-energy live shows, gut-wrenchingly relatable lyrics and melodies that blend pop sensibility and hard rock. The Used released their ninth studio album, “Heartwork (Deluxe),” in 2021 via Big Noise – the extended album features 11 never-before-heard tracks that were all written during the original “Heartwork” (2020) sessions. A variety of collaborators, including producer John Feldmann, co-writer Mark Hoppus (Blink-182), guest artists Travis Barker, Jason Aalon Butler (Fever 333), Caleb Shomo (Beartooth) and more, helped deliver this 27-track album that simultaneously showcases what established The Used as one of the most prolific bands of the early 2000s as well as what has kept them at the forefront of the genre ever since. The band locked in No. 4 spots on both the Top Alternative and Top Hard Rock Album charts, No. 11 on the Top Rock Album charts and landed on the Billboard Top 200 at the No. 87 spot.
Never predictable and always engaging, Pierce the Veil continues to soar on the strength of highly potent energy, rich musicality and a scrappy sense of exuberant ambition. Frontman Vic Fuentes, guitarist Tony Perry and bassist Jaime Preciado have mastered the art of infusing rock with angsty, confessional emotions and have cultivated a diehard following. The band’s evolution from album to album is nothing less than stunning with a string of successful records including “A Flair For The Dramatic” (2007) and “Selfish Machines” (2010), which shot No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart. The band’s latest album, “The Jaws of Life,” marked a welcome return after a seven year hiatus, garnering praise from Rolling Stone, Uproxx, Huffington Post, Gawker, and MTV, among others.
The Used and Pierce the Veil will be joined by the genre-bending alternative rock outfit Don Bronco and the Los Angeles-based pop punk duo Girlfriends. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
