Song is second from Toxic Positivity
The Used has shared “Giving Up,” the second single from their upcoming album, Toxic Positivity, due Friday, May 19th via Big Noise.
When asked to describe “Giving Up,” vocalist Bert McCracken shares one of his favorite William Shakespeare quotes to give a deeper meaning to the track: “It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.”
“Giving Up” follows lead single “Numb.” Over 20 years into their career, Toxic Positivity is everything fans have come to know and love from The Used – straightforward, in-your-face, destructive, and vulnerable all at once.
On Saturday, May 20th, the band will perform a pop-up album release show at The Troubadour in Los Angeles to celebrate the project.
The band recently announced that they will be hitting the road with Pierce The Veil this summer on the Creative Control Tour. The epic co-headliner kicks off on May 23rd in Austin, TX, making stops across the US and Canada in Tampa, Toronto, Baltimore, New York, Grand Rapids, Irvine, and more before wrapping up in Phoenix, AZ on July 2nd with support from Don Broco, Deathbyromy, and Girlfriends supporting select dates.
Established in 2000, The Used was brought to life and have since released a collection of albums that pioneered the scene of emo rock. High energy live shows, gut wrenching relatable lyrics, and melodies that blended pop sensibility and hard rock was the perfect combination to make an everlasting impression on fans globally.
