The Used have made three tracks, "Hospital," "Pain," and "Earthquake" available for streaming on their myspace profile. The act will be supporting their latest release, Lies for the Liars, which is available now via Reprise Records, on tour this fall.
Did you miss your opportunity to watch The Used perform live on Conan O'Brien? If so, have no fear; you can find a video of the group performing "Pretty Handsome Awkward" in the replies. The track is taken from the quartet's latest release, Lies for the Liars, which is available now via Reprise Records.
Chadam, the character who appeared on the artwork for The Used's latest release, Lies for the Liars, will reportedly star in his own internet cartoon series, in which Chadam "attempts to wish away the serial killer Viceroy, discovering the nature of himself along the way." The album is available in stores now courtesy of Warner Brothers Records.

The Used's vocalist Bert McCracken has developed a node on his vocal chord which has forced the band to cancel all upcoming tour dates for the rest of June and July including their scheduled dates on Warped Tour. More information can be read here.
