The Used and The New Regime at House of Blues

May 17, 2016
The Used band

The Used was one of the most popular and prolific bands of the post-punk/screamo genre. After the success of their self-titled debut album, the band unleashed their critically acclaimed sophomore effort In Love and Death, which was later certified gold in the United States. It peaked at no. 5 on the Billboard 200 and has sold over 642,000 copies. They’ve gone on to release several more albums since then including Artwork (2009), Vulnerable (2012), and Imaginary Enemy (2014). Now, the band are embarking on anniversary tour to celebrate the release of their first two albums. The band will play two nights in each city, performing their first LP on one night and their second on the next night. The Used will play two nights in Chicago at the House of Blues on May 17th and 18th. The New Regime will be the support act.
