The Used Says Farewell to Drummer

The Used made aԚ post on their website stating that Branden Steineckert has, in fact, left the band. The following is from THEUSED.NETԚ 

A NOTE FROM THE USED

Dear Friends.

It is with much sadness that we want to tell you that Branden is no longer the drummer in The Used. We felt that we needed to move forward without Branden as our drummer. We wish Branden well, and owe a great deal of gratitude towards him for his hard work over the years. We could not have gotten this far without him. We all wish much happiness and success in Branden’s future endeavors – wherever they may lead.

No new drummer has been chosen yet.

We are almost done recording the album and it should be released in early 2007.

We are very proud of the songs so far and can’t wait for you to hear them.

Love and see you soon,

Bert, Jeph and Quinn

The Used in the hospital?

Last night at approximately 1am EST, John Feldmann (lead singer of the band Goldfinger) posted a MySpace bulletin. Simply put, the bulletin was titled ‘The Used are in the hospital!!’, while the body of the bulletin only read ‘More news to come.’

I will update if there is more news to follow.
