The Used, Taking Back Sunday closing out co-headlining tour in Orlando



The used released their last album “Imaginary Enemy” (April 1) under their own record label GAS Union.

Taking Back Sunday and The Used teamed up this spring to go on tour together, as both bands were releasing new albums in the early months of the year.

Taking Back Sunday have been together since 1999, but it wasn’t until 2002 that the band got their first taste of mainstream success with the release of “Tell All Your Friends,” which featured “Cute Without the ‘E’ (Cut from the Team)” and “You’re So Last Summer.”

The band’s newest release is “Happiness Is,” which released in March, was the group’s first album since 2011.

The Used found success around the same time as Tacking Back Sunday, during the boom of alternative rock in the early 2000’s. Fans may remember hits such as “The Taste of Ink” and “A Box Full of Sharp Objects” from their self-titled debut album, which released in the summer of 2002.

The Used also released a new album in early April, in the form of “Imaginary Enemy.” The album marks the first release by the independent label GAS Union, which is the band’s second independent record label which they own.

Taking Back Sunday and The Used will be closing out their tour with a final show at the House of Blues in Orlando on Sunday, April 27. Tickets for the show have been sold out for months as both bands are big favorites in the Central Florida music scene.
