The Used has introduced the official music video for “Rise Up Lights” from their 7th studio album, ‘The Canyon’. The visuals set perfectly with the track which music publication Alternative Press has described as “avant-garde dystopian anthem.” The Tune picks up right off with singer Bert McCracken’s vocals and the amazing riffs of guitarist Justin Shekoski hitting you right in the face. Fans can check out the video at smarturl.it/RiseUpLightsOfficial.
Rolling Stone has also launched an intimate acoustic video session here. According to the Rolling Stone, “McCracken delivered a remarkable vocal performance where he jumped out of a gentle croon into some ragged wail.” The movie has gained more than 365K viewpoints in under 24 hours.
Last week, the band released their 7th studio album, ‘The Canyon’, via Hopeless Records. Written out of pain and loss, ‘The Canyon’ is tragic and haunting while also having a sense of light and energy that is unlike anything this band has put forward. “This isn’t just an album born from a death, it’s an album whose makers have found some new lease on life,” shared Nylon in an exclusive interview and acoustic session with the band.
Produced by Ross Robinson (The Cure, At The Drive In), this 17-track album was recorded entirely on tape, with no more than 3 takes being used on each song. On the new record, Billboard shared “It’s their largest body of work to date, and in many ways, their most important.” Fans can purchase the album now in stores, on Apple Music, iTunes or streaming on Spotify.
