The Used vocalist Bert McCracken has announced that he is currently taking a break from performing with the band in the immediate future to address his mental health issues. In light of his decision, the group will not be performing as planned at the ‘Slam Dunk‘ festivals this coming weekend in the UK. The band has released an official statement around the matter and you can read it below:

“I have always been open about my struggle with mental health and have recently found myself facing new and overwhelming challenges. For this reason, I won’t be able to play the upcoming shows at Slam Dunk. I am so sorry but needed to make this decision to focus on professional treatment and self-care. Performing live for The Used fans is once of my greatest joys, and I can’t imagine doing anything else. We have the best fans in the world, thank you for your undying support.

With love,
Robbie and The Used“
