We caught new music from The Used at Warped Tour this passed summer when they told us all about their EP “The Ocean of The Sky” which has since then been followed by a full length release “Imaginary Enemy” that is set to be release April 1st of this year! Pre-Order the album on ITunes here. “Imaginary Enemy” marks the sixth studio full-length from the band, following 2012’s “Vulnerable“.
Through his dark, cinematic storytelling, “Cry” music video director, Gus Black (Deftones, Atlas Genius) sends the viewer on a exploration through the everyday pain and sadness we all feel.
“Do we ever truly recognize moments of life altering change?” asks The Used frontman, Bert McCracken, “And does a glimpse of true recognition ever move to solidify the fleeting moments of life that pass us by? What does it mean to live forever in the eternal now? How can we, as human beings, avoid the serfdom of the philosophical concept of ‘future’? Before it is too late we must learn to love the precious present with all of the fury and passion life has allowed us. Understanding that it is exactly what we do with our tragedy to inspire others with theirs, that makes us the people we are. In the words of the great Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel:- “The owl of Minerva spreads its wings only with the falling of the dusk.” Please enjoy our new song ‘Cry’.”
