The Used announce B-sides album ‘Medz,’ announce Summer tour

Rock icons The Used have announced a deluxe b-side album ‘Medz,’ set for release on June 21st via Big Noise. Including previously released singles ‘People Are Vomit’ and ‘Fuck You,’ ‘Medz’ offers eight new, never-before-heard singles from The Used from the Toxic Positivity’ writing sessions with John Feldmann in 2022 and 2023.

Vocalist Bert McCracken shared a quote from C.S. Lewis to give a deeper meaning to the collection of B-sides: “Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden: it is easier to say “My tooth is aching” than to say ‘My heart is broken.’”

Alongside the announcement, The Used have released the title track of the upcoming album, ‘Medz.’ The track, with its bouncing, catchy rhythm paired with existential lyrics sung in frontman Bert’s unique and enticing voice, is quintessential The Used.
