The Used was forced to cancel all shows for June and July as singer Bert McCracken announced he was advised to undergo surgery for a node that developed on one of his vocal chords. The cancellations mean the band will miss all their scheduled Warped Tour dates. They released this statement about the Warped cancellations:
"The band is incredibly disappointed but promised to return to touring in the USA in early September with headlining dates. Kevin Lyman and the Van's Warped tour have been amazing supporters of our band and we are truly saddened that we won't be able to perform on this year's tour," states Quinn Allman, The Used's guitarist. "We hope to have new tour details ready for release shortly."
The band's rabid fan base made their latest release Lies for the Liars one of the more anticipated records of the year. While the fans are dissapointed, they are 110% behind the band and nothing but well wishes for McCracken are popping up all over the net. Doctors expect a full recovery and he should be ready to sing again in five or so weeks.
