THE USED ANNOUNCE VENUES FOR NATIONWIDE HEADLINING TOUR

latinum-certified Reprise Records artists The Used have announced the venues for their nationwide headlining fall tour. The month-long run, which kicks off October 9th in Las Vegas, NV and runs through November 14th in Portland, Oregon, will support their new album, Artwork, out August 31, 2009. The Almost and Drive A will be supporting.

The Used have announced a special pre-sale for the tour. With every online ticket purchased, fans will receive exclusive new music: B-side track “Something Safe (Demo)” as well as the uncensored music video for “Blood On My Hands.”

Early critical acclaim for the Matt Squire-produced Artwork has been effusive. Outburn (which the band currently graces the cover of) praised its “humbling ability to sound scrappy and raw while being perfectly polished and huge,” while Alternative Press states “The Used have delivered not only the definitive album of their career but arguably one of the best records you’ll hear in 2009. 4 ½ stars.”

The band’s legions of fans are responding as well. The first single, “Blood On My Hands” premiered on iTunes with over 5k downloads in the first day, the highest digital debut in the band’s history. The video for the song debuted on MySpace and shot directly to the #1 spot, with 200,000 views in the first 24 hours. The Used is one of MySpace’s Top 15 artists, with over 100,000 streams a day on the site.
