The Used Premiere “The Lottery” Featuring Beartooth’s Caleb Shomo


The Used have unveiled “The Lottery” as the final track to be shared ahead of tomorrow’s (April 24th) release of their new album, “Heartwork“. Beartooth frontman Caleb Shomo guests on this track, which you can check out below.

The Used frontman Bert McCracken commented to Kerrang! of the track and how it came to be, informing them that Shomo recorded his parts in the green room of an NYC venue prior to going onstage. He elaborated:

“…The result is one of the heaviest songs in The Used catalog. And if you haven’t yet read the short story The Lottery by Shirley Jackson, you’re in for a real treat!”

Shomo added:

“I got hit up to do it while on tour and I was all in: thankfully I had a recording rig with me. Bert sent me the song, lyrics and concept, and gave me the freedom to do anything I wanted with my part. It was pretty intimidating to lay it down on the road but I’m very happy with how it turned out – and I think everyone is! The song’s a banger. Jam it loud.”
