The Used have released a new single.

Blow Me features Fever 333's Jason Aalon Butler and marks the band's first new material in more than two years. It also finds them teaming back up with producer John Feldmann, having signed to his label Big Noise earlier this year. They're currently working with him in the studio on the follow-up to 2017's 'The Canyon'.

The punishing track takes screamo to a whole new level, with the only relief coming courtesy of the chorus melody. Vocalist Bert McCracken said:

“The Used are proud to present our new song Blow Me featuring Jason Aalon Butler from Fever 333. Whether metaphorically signifying the power of words in general or magnifying concern for the situation of societal gun violence, we urge the fans of our music to find individual and personal meaning in all of our songs. Thank you, and please enjoy!” 

Butler commented on the collaboration:

“If I’m being honest, I’ve been a fan of this band since the first single they put on an Atticus Clothing comp CD back in 2002. I heard ‘Box Full Of Sharp Objects’ and thought- ‘This is it. This is the next step in heavier music with melodic sensibility. I loved it. I studied it. Then I met the man that produced it, John Feldmann. Loved him. Studied him. Then- a couple of months ago I was asked by the band and John to sing on a track from the new album. They played me some songs and, no bullshit, I got that feeling I felt when I first heard ‘Box Full’ on that comp 17 years ago. For any and all The Used fans - they’re back again. In a BIG fucking way.”

The Used will return to the UK in May for Slam Dunk Festival. Head here for details.
