TAKE IT AWAY (The Used song)

The Used is an American alternative rock band from Orem, Utah. Their sound has been classified under many sub-genres of rock. The band has achieved both Gold and Platinum statuses in more than six countries worldwide.

TAKING IT AWAY

In 2004 lead singer Bert McCracken’s ex-girlfriend, who was pregnant with his child, died of a drug overdose. Their second studio album was thus named In Love and Death, released as a reference to the tragedy Bert dealt with during the recording.

“I’m lying to myself and this dagger’s my excuse”

The album received generally favorable reviews and spawned this single which earned them their first Video Award nomination. They are currently on tour across Canada (with Three Days Grace) and will soon be in Japan and Australia.
