Quinn is a vital part of the group and we wish him the best in his upcoming endeavors and look forward to the day he rejoins us on the road. We are thrilled, however, to share that Justin Shekoski of Saosin will be filling in for Quinn as we hit the road this year!

The Used have been banned from performing in Canada for ten years due to Bert McCracken's criminal record.
Quote from Bert"They won’t let me in. They said not for 10 years. It’s weird, they’re like, ’You need to rehabilitate these crimes before you come back to Canada.’ I’m like, ’What does that mean? When I say criminal record, I’m talking teensy, eensy misdemeanors they still have on my record from, like, 2001 and 2003 - trespassing.”
