HM is excited to announce the release of Colossus’ lyric video to their song “Outcast,” which features guest vocals from Dan McWhorter of Gideon. “Outcast” is the debut single from the band’s upcoming album, Badlands, which drops Sept. 16.

The title of the album pays homage to the band’s home state of South Dakota and the areas where harsh erosion of the ground results in an incredibly beautiful display of color. The themes of beauty found in desolation and finding encouragement despite tragedy are main elements of the upcoming release.

Let's Get to the Heart of Things

"Music is our everything; we live and die for it. It’s our way to be human, so making songs that make that deep human connection is really important for The Used." In a new age of releasing music in a socially-distanced world, Bert McCracken and The Used face the challenge of human connection when physical connection is taboo. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt dives in with McCracken about The Used's new album, Heartwork, his absence on social media, and why 2020 will be the year of rice.
