The Used, a promising emo delight, premieres the latest single ‘Cathedral Bell’ off of Heartwork. Their eighth album is due out in just three short days. Certainly, the world it was originally written in is quite different from what it is now, but the message it sends is relevant even more so now. Heartwork is due out April 24th via Big Noise, and ‘Cathedral Bells’ undoubtedly has us psyched. Check out the delivery of high energy, catchy, somewhat sinister song here:
Sending goosebumps down your spine, The Used frontman Bert McCraken uses the eeriness of sound to make you feel. Charging the song with energy, McCracken said the song reminds him of his younger years.
“I had a really hard time with sleeping when I was younger. I just never wanted to go to bed, and when I did, I could never sleep. It just reminds me of being young and in the dark and up way past my bedtime.”
Finding it easy to relate to The Used helps us find a sense of calm as they remind us that none of us are on this journey alone. Heartwork will provide us the band’s consistent deliverance of emotions, sincerity, and vulnerability. This 16-song offering will navigate through self-examination, literate exploration, self-awareness, with the perfect dash of whimsy.
If you think that the exciting news is finished, well think again.
Five Star Extracts Partnership With The Used Bert McCracken: A Match Made In Cannabis Heaven
Our very own Bert McCracken, an emo-rock ICON, has also teamed up with Five Star Extracts for an exclusive line of Cannabis Products. Five Star was created by two brothers Eric and Jason Winkler after they first hand witnessed the positive effects of cannabis. Helping their 94-year-old grandfather off pain medicine after a terrible fall. Seeing him improve through cannabis, and becoming his joyful, full loving self, being able to enjoy his remaining years with family. Instead of being in bed on pain medicine. What a beautiful thing.
Kicking things off with this partnership, Five Star will release a new version of their iconic ‘Flavored Syrup Tincture’, called ‘The Taste of Peach’ (How clever), exclusively with Connected locations throughout California. This product contains 800 mg of THC in a water-soluble formula. This will allow consumers to use the product without having to vape or smoke while using any level of cannabis product.
“So excited to be teaming up with Five Star Extracts to try to help people in need with an exciting and delicious array of cannabis products. Five Star is committed to compassion and their story shows that,” shares McCracken on the partnership. “We hope to kill some of the stigma that has surrounded cannabis for so long. I cannot wait for everyone to check out what we’ve got coming!”
