The Used officially part ways with guitarist Quinn Allman, recruit Justin Shekoski (Saosin)

Despite having just announced a massive North American tour in which they will be playing their first two albums in their entirety, The Used have officially parted ways with longtime guitarist Quinn Allman and replaced him with Saosin guitarist Justin Shekoski. Allman took a hiatus from touring with the band earlier this year and now it seems as if his absence will be permanent. Here’s a statement from the band:

Nothing can ever change, or detract from the magic of the relationships that helped create the music that is The Used. For these beautiful memories, we will be forever grateful. As a result of mutual understanding, Quinn will not be returning to the band and Justin Shekoski will be taking his place. The journey so far has been amazing and we continue to feel very positive about what lies ahead in the future. As always, can’t wait to see you on the road!

Andy Maddox, who is The Saddest Landscape’s singer/guitarist, had this to say about the meaning behind “You Never Asked”:

“This is a song about not wanting to live with regret, and not wanting to be afraid to get out and just be part of things. I have missed out on a lot in life by being filled with anxiety and justifying why I should not leave the house. I don’t want that, I don’t want to wait for an invitation. I want to get out there and chase dreams and if failure awaits dance heroically in the wreckage knowing I tried. It is a song about not letting the bad times to be the focal point of the story, when those aren’t clouding the memories there is often so much good there, I don’t always want to remember the reason for fights, life is too short. It is a promise to myself to be ready to take second chances and stop living in self imposed exile.”

Album Review: Wild Moth – “Inhibitor”

Wild Moth’s sophomore album Inhibitor continues their brand of sludgy yet melodic post-punk, while upping the melody even more than previous releases and adding some shimmer.  This is music to listen to after winding down from a long night.  But where their debut album Over, Again fits perfectly after that night has been a hard one, Inhibitor is good for reflecting on a night that was a little better.  You’re not going to be dancing with ecstasy, but you can definitely relax and feel content.

Take opening track and lead single “Mirror.”  The song starts out with a somber guitar progression that is masked by a much brighter lead guitar.  It’s hard to tell whether to feel sad or happy during this song, and that is a theme that is pretty consistent throughout the rest of the album.  Some songs, like “You Found Out” emphasize the dark feel of their previous work, while others like “Hello, Star,” bring more of the brightness out.  And whether the band is going dark, light, or somewhere in between, the vocals always have a laid back and haunting feel to them.

The album has an overall sludgy feel, and every song seems to keep to a similar tempo.  Other than the wonderful “Gallery of Walls,” everything seems to be in the mid-tempo range.  That isn’t always a bad thing, but even after multiple listens, the songs all kind of blended together and not a whole lot really stood out to me.

This is an album I’m sure fans of the band will automatically love, even if things are a little different than their last time around.  But those new to the band may want to give their first album a spin before diving into this one.
