The Used Announce New Album ‘Toxic Positivity’

Emo icons The Used will be in Australia for a major co-headline tour with Papa Roach in the second half of April 2023. The Utah band recently announced they’ve got a new album on the way.

Titled Toxic Positivity, the band’s ninth studio LP is due for release on Friday, 19th May. The news is accompanied by an angsty, anthemic new single called ‘People Are Vomit’.

The Used – ‘People Are Vomit’

The ‘People Are Vomit’ chorus features some memorably pessimistic lyrics from frontman and Australian resident Bert McCracken. “This future’s fucked before it got started,” he sings. “This world’s disgusting / People are vomit.

However, despite the dour sentiment, McCracken cast the song in a different light in an accompanying press release. “We think this song is fun and cute. We hope you love it too,” he said.

Toxic Positivity is out on Friday, 19th May via Big Noise Music Group.
