The Used Recruit Story of the Year and Amira Elfeky for Summer Trek

- By Ramon Gonzales

The tour will include a pair of festival appearances in addition to a month of headlining dates.

Marking just more than a year since the release of the band's latest full length studio album, Toxic Positivity, rock pillars The Used are setting out for a summer tour with longtime friends and counterparts, Story of the Year. 

The tour will begin on June 20th in Gary, Indiana and wrap up with a set in Norfolk, VA on July 13th. Amira Elfeky has been tapped to open all dates on the month long stretch. Additionally, the tour will include a pair of festival dates with performances at PhaseFest in Wisconsin and Born and Raised Fest in St. Catharines, ON. 

“Stoked to be touring with some of our oldest friends in the industry,” shared The Used frontman Bert McCracken. “We’ve always been huge fans of Big Blue Monkey! Can’t wait to see Amira Elfeky live as well!!

Dan Marsala of Story of the Year also spoke about the announcement, emphasizing the history between the two bands. “The Used have been big brothers to Story Of The Year for over 20 years. They were the one of first bands to take us on tour after we finished ‘Page Avenue’ and they played a big part in SOTY becoming the band we are today. I’ve always admired how The Used were the fearless leaders of our early 2000s scene and I’m so proud of the friendship that we built so many years ago. The Used and Story Of The Year... that just sounds right!”
