The Used have announced a rescheduled run of tour dates in the UK and Europe.

The US outfit had originally planned to play shows in February in support of their latest album The Canyon but had to take a step back following a family death affecting the band.

Now they’ve announced that they’ll make up the dates in August, with shows planned in Sweden, Austria, Germany, Switzerland and the UK.

Tickets for the original show will be valid on the new dates.

Speaking about the follow-up to 2014’s Imaginary Enemy, vocalist Bert McCracken said: “I’ve learned as an artist that a great idea is such a gift. If I don’t stop whatever it is I’m doing, even if while driving, if I don’t pull over at that moment, then maybe I didn’t deserve the idea to begin with.

“I learned to respect and worship the ideas in that way, that they are and will always be something sacred. Stopping in that moment was a brand new approach for us during this process.”
