The Used Headline 2013 Take Action Tour + Announce ‘Vulnerable II’ Re-Release
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.
The Used will welcome We Came As Romans, Crown the Empire, and Mindflow for the tour, which launches Jan. 11 at the Las Vegas House of Blues. Like past Take Action treks, the tour has a charitable association. This year, proceeds from the trek will be directed to the It Gets Better Project, created to provide youths in the LGBT community with a positive outlook by showing the potential of what can happen by surviving the often difficult teen years. Ten percent of each ticket sold will be donated to It Gets Better and the annual charitable sponsor, Sub City. Tickets are on sale at the Take Action website.
The Used's Bert McCracken and Jeph Howard have created an "It Gets Better" video to help support the cause. The promo can be seen below. "It's our privilege to work with such a lovely charity that does so much good in this confusing world," says McCracken. "Pease check out itgetsbetter.org and we'll see you at the Take Action Tour."
In addition, Hopeless Records will partner with Sub City to offer the 'Take Action Compilation, Vol. 11," which features tracks from The Used, Bad Religion, AWOLNATION, Falling in Reverse, Whitechapel and more. As with the tour, a portion of the proceeds from sale of the two-disc set will go to It Gets Better.
As for The Used's 'Vulnerable II' re-release, the album has now expanded to a two-disc set, with the second disc offering multiple remixes and acoustic versions of tracks from the original effort. It's due in stores Jan. 22, and can be pre-ordered here.
