Watch: The Used ‘I Come Alive’ New Video

Written by Kiel Egging on April 6, 2012

Utah punks The Used have released their video for I Come Alive – the first single off their new album Vulnerable.

The band worked with director Aaron Hymes for the video, which was shot over the course of two days in California.

Singer Bert McCracken said the video drew on a topic that is central to a lot of the band’s songs – overcoming adversity.

“The music video for I Come Alive is simply a piece of art to be enjoyed,” he said.

“Our band in no way condones violence or teen bullying. The song, for me, is about falling down or hitting the ground when things happen to you in life.

“That’s pretty much what ‘Box Full of Sharp Objects’ was about as well, on the first record.  Taking a hit can be the most inspirational thing that can happen to you.”

The Used will do their own headline shows around America to support the album in May and June, before joining the Vans Warped Tour.  Check out the video for I Come Alive below:
