As expected, Emery will be going out on tour in support of the 10-year anniversary of their fabulous record, The Weak’s End. As an added bonus, former frontman Devin Shelton will return to the group for the dates (listed below). They’ll be playing the record front to back, and as the band says, “This tour will be set almost exclusively in very small rooms just as Emery shows used to be back in 2003.”

The even is being billed as an “interactive experience,” hosted by founding Emery members Matt Carter and Toby Morrell. I expect tickets to go quickly, so I’d try to get yours now.

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.

Sciarretto talks to us from her own home in New Jersey about how the pandemic is affecting artists, their process of undergoing transition, and how it's going to change music – maybe in great and unexpected ways.
