The Used Part With Drummer

The Used has issued the following statement regarding their split with their drummer:

"It is with much sadness that we want to tell you that Branden is no longer the drummer in The Used. We felt that we needed to move forward without Branden as our drummer. We wish Branden well, and owe a great deal of gratitude towards him for his hard work over the years. We could not have gotten this far without him. We all wish much happiness and success in Branden's future endeavors - wherever they may lead."

The first 4 dates of the tour (8/13 Colorado Springs, 8/15 Albuquerque, 8/16 Las Cruces, 8/18 Reno) have been cancelled due to the GLASSJAW cancellation and the inability to fill the main support slot at this late of a notice

The Bled To Support The Used

With 297 shows under their belt in support of their debut Pass the Flask, The Bled will make one last trip around the U.S. before heading into the studio to record their follow-up album. The Bled snagged a supporting slot for the Used and will share the stage with Atreyu, Head Automatica, The Bronx and No Warning.

“We are finishing up roughly 16 months of solid touring in support of Pass the Flask , topping it all off with this tour alongside the Used. It’s going to be the biggest, longest and probably most insane tour we've been a part of,” says Jeremy Talley, guitar player. “It still hasn't really set in -- that we’re doing it. I'm pretty sure things are gonna get broken.”

Over the course of the last year, The Bled have supported bands including My Chemical Romance, Poison The Well, Avenged Sevenfold and many others, in the U.S as well as the U.K. In addition, the metalcore outfit spent four weeks on this year’s Warped Tour ruling the Interpunk.com and Smartpunk.com stages.

Upon completion of this tour The Bled will retreat to their home state of Arizona to begin work on their sophomore effort. Talley explains: “After the madness of this tour, we are taking the winter off to finish writing and begin recording the new songs. I don't want to talk too much about it since it’s still really early but so far the new stuff is coming out really ugly.” He adds, “This is a good thing if you ask me… We like ugly scary stuff and we’re getting pretty good at it.”

Kelly Osbourne Feels Used By The Used Frontman

Ratethemusic.com reports Kelly Osbourne remains convinced The Used frontman Bert McCracken dated her because he was only interested in generating publicity for his band. "I have such a black heart because of him. I truly hate him for leaving me like that and it's so sad to hate," Kelly admitted. "I'm torn between two feelings with him, whether he genuinely liked me for me but just couldn't handle it or he dated me because he wanted to become more famous. Sadly, the signs are more pointing towards the fame side. I think if I was to come face-to-face with him now I wouldn't know whether to cry, hug him or punch his lights out - he just really fu**ed me up."
