The Used have announced their eighth studio album.

Having recently returned with the single Blow Me featuring Jason Aalon Butler, the Utah band will release 'Heartwork' on April 24, following up 2017’s 'The Canyon'. In addition to Butler, the record also boasts collaborations with Beartooth frontman Caleb Shomo and Blink-182 members Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker.

To accompany the news of the record, the band have shared the opening track, Paradise Lost — named after the John Milton poem. Vocalist Bery McCracken said:

"I've always been a bit obsessed with Paradise Lost. I really dug deep into the poem and its author, John Milton. As I was reading a lot of his political essays, I realized that a lot of what 'Satan' says in Paradise Lost are quotes directly from John Milton’s own mouth.

"A lot of people thought he was the devil back then. He had a huge problem with the show of opulence from the Church. He thought it was disgusting. His poem is about the failed revolution against the Church of England, which is Satan's failed revolution on earth. And what’s more incredible or exciting than a failed revolution?"

Take a look at the album's artwork, tracklist and the new song's video below.
