Update: The band has headed off to go do a signing at their show. Huge thank you to the band for doing this with us. Hopeless Records sent us some photos of the band while they were chatting on the website -- I tossed 'um on Facebook if you want to see what the guys are up to.
Starting at 5pm (PST), we've got The Used hanging out with us and chatting in this very thread. Hit the replies to talk with the band about their new album, upcoming tour, recording process, anything at all. The album is available today on iTunes and Amazon.
The band will be chatting under the following blue usernames: Bert_TheUsed, Dan_TheUsed, Jeph_TheUsed, and Quinn_TheUsed.
Be respectful. Don't be afraid to ask questions, but make sure that you aren't crossing any boundaries of any sort. If you have any hesitations about posting a certain question, odds are you shouldn't post it. Disrespect will not be tolerated and will be met with a deleted post and a ban.
Double, triple, and quadruple posts will be deleted, along with posts that are overly modified to get attention. No extra formatting is needed; I'm sure they can read just as well as, if not better than, most of us.
If they doesn't answer your question, feel free to ask another.
This is not a way to ask them for favors, to ask them if they'll make your voicemail message for you or visit you at your house.
Have fun. The idea is for everyone to talk together and share in a collective experience.

Just wanted to say thanks a billion for putting Vancouver on your upcoming tour. You guys have been my favourite band for six years now and it's going to be my first time seeing you guys live. Do you think you'll be doing meet and greets?
