The Used Imaginary Enemy on Limited Edition LP
Imaginary Enemy, produced by the acclaimed John Feldmann, is the sixth studio full-length from The Used following the success of 2012’s Vulnerable, which debuted at No.8 on the Billboard Top 200 charts and marked the group’s fourth top 10 album. The Used - comprised of guitarist Quinn Allman, bassist Jeph Howard and drummer Dan Whitesides - originally formed in Orem, Utah in 2001, signing to Reprise Records that same year.
Championed by producer and collaborator John Feldmann, the band issued their gold-certified self-titled debut in 2002, quickly cementing the Used as leaders among the post-hardcore elite, thanks in part to unforgettable singles like “Box Full of Sharp Objects,” “The Taste of Ink,” “Blue And Yellow” and “Buried Myself Alive.” The band then released the CD/DVD combo Maybe Memories in 2003, now certified platinum, featuring B-sides, live cuts, demos and unreleased tracks, while still another gold record followed - 2004’s In Love And Death - spawning singles “Take It Away,” “I Caught Fire” and “All That I’ve Got.”
2011 marked a year of change for The Used. Leaving Reprise Records, their label of ten years, the band formed their own label, Anger Music Group, which they have independently released 2012’s studio album Vulnerable and an EP The Ocean of the Sky in 2013. A band that has never shied away from using their music as a platform to ask the tough questions and evoke political conversation, The Used brings that passion tenfold on Imaginary Enemy. A palpable sense of the band’s commitment, frustration, and optimism for the future lies at the very core of each track.
