Welcome to Part 2 of our exclusive dip into the mind of the Used's Bert McCracken. In this second half of our talk with the Used singer, McCracken talks about his continual lyrical theme of 'time,' the difference between recording vocals for the band's debut and the band's upcoming 'Imaginary Enemy' album, his favorite philosophers + much more.
Ever since the Used released their self-titled debut album in 2002, fans have been rabid to delve into the mind of singer Bert McCracken. The Used connected with their fans with such impact that McCracken unknowingly created a cult of personality around him, forcing the singer into a dimension somewhere between musician and celebrity.
Taking Back Sunday and The Used will team up for what promises to be a hard-rocking tour this spring. The two bands both have new albums en route and this will be the first major North American run for each supporting their upcoming releases.
Escape the Fate continue their reign with ‘You’re Insane’ as they just beat out We Came as Romans in our last Cage Match. Will they be able to do it again as they face their new competitors in this round?
Black Veil Brides are set to make their mark on 2013 early with the Jan. 8 release of their third studio album, 'Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones.' Bert McCracken of the Used lent his vocals to the upcoming album, apparently while taking his pants off, running around the room and punching himself in the head while singing, according to Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Biersack.
The Used will head up the 2013 Take Action Tour, and they'll be squeezing a little extra life out of their 'Vulnerable' album by re-releasing it as a two-disc effort titled 'Vulnerable II' that coincides with the run.
Fans of Black Veil Brides will have to wait a little longer for the band’s new disc as the release date was recently pushed back from late October to January 2013, but new photos from the studio show a hint of some of the “big things” that might be in the works including a guest appearance on vocals.
