The Used have released the first music video for “I Come Alive” off their 5th studio album, Vulnerable, which hit #8 on the Billboard Top 200 charts, selling 31,521 in the first week. The Used and director Aaron Hymes came up with the treatment for the video that was shot over the course of two days in California. Singer Bert McCracken wants to share: “The music video for ‘I Come Alive’ is simply a piece of art to be enjoyed. 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.”
This is the first album release off their own record label Anger Music Group partnered with Hopeless Records. The band recently announced a headlining tour kicking off May 12th with Dead Sara and Stars In Stereo and will also play Main Stage on this summer’s 2012 Vans Warped Tour.
