Alt-rockers The Used have been forced to drop off the Vans Warped Tour because frontman Bert McCracken is undergoing vocal cord surgery. McCracken developed a node on one of his vocal cords and doctors have recommended treatment and rest without singing for about five weeks, according to a press release. A full recovery is expected. "[Warped founder] Kevin Lyman and the Van's Warped tour have been amazing supporters of our band and we are truly saddened that we won't be able to perform on this year's tour," guitarist Quinn Allman said in a statement. The disappointed bandmates plan to return to the road in September for a headlining tour of the US. The Utah-based quartet has been out this year supporting its third album, "Lies for the Liars," which debuted in the Top 5 of The Billboard 200 when it surfaced in May. The set's latest single, "The Bird and the Worm," is currently making waves at modern-rock radio, and the follow-up track, "Pretty Handsome Awkward," is on deck. Both are streaming at The Used's website. Meanwhile, the 45-date Warped Tour is set to head out with more than 80 bands in tow, including tour regulars Bad Religion and a host of old school, emo, punk, screamo and hip-hop acts. Warped Tour dates are below, according to Livedaily.com: 06/29 - Pomona, CA - Pomona Fairgrounds 06/30 - Ventura, CA - Seaside Park 07/01 - Mountain View, CA - Shoreline Amphitheatre 07/03 - Vancouver, British Columbia - Thunderbird Stadium 07/05 - Calgary, Alberta - Race City Speedway 07/07 - Salt Lake City, UT - Utah State Fairgrounds 07/08 - Denver, CO - Invesco Field at Mile High 07/11 - Phoenix, AZ - Cricket Pavilion 07/12 - Las Cruces, NM - NMSU Practice Field 07/13 - Selma, TX - Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre Lot 07/14 - Dallas, TX - Smirnoff Centre 07/15 - Houston, TX - Reliant Center 07/18 - Atlanta, GA - HiFi Buys Amphitheatre 07/19 - Jacksonville, FL - Reynolds Park Yacht Center 07/20 - St. Petersburg, FL - Vinoy Park 07/21 - Miami, FL - Bicentennial Park 07/22 - Orlando, FL - Tinker Field 07/23 - Charlotte, NC - Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre 07/24 - Virginia Beach, VA - Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre 07/25 - Columbia, MD - Merriweather Post Pavilion 07/26 - Scranton, PA - Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain 07/27 - Detroit, MI - Comerica Park parking lot 07/28 - Tinley Park, IL - First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre 07/29 - Minneapolis, MN - Metrodome parking lot 07/31 - Milwaukee, WI - Marcus Amphitheatre 08/01 - Cincinnati, OH - Riverbend Music Center 08/02 - Cleveland, OH - Tower City Amphitheatre 08/03 - Camden, NJ - Tweeter Center at the Waterfront 08/04 - Uniondale, NY - Nassau Coliseum 08/05 - Englishtown, NJ - Raceway Park 08/07 - Noblesville, IN - Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre 08/08 - Burgettstown, PA - Post Gazette Pavilion 08/09 - Mansfield, MA - Tweeter Center 08/10 - Darien Center, NY - Darien Lake Field 08/11 - Barrie, Ontario - Park Place 08/12 - Montreal, Quebec - Park Jean Drapeau 08/14 - Maryland Heights, MO - Verizon Wireless Amphitheater 08/15 - Bonner Springs, KS - Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre 08/17 - Nampa, ID - Idaho Center 08/18 - George, WA - The Gorge 08/19 - St. Helens, OR - Columbia Meadows 08/22 - Fresno, CA - Selland Arena 08/23 - Marysville, CA - Sleep Train Amphitheatre Lot 08/24 - Chula Vista, CA - Coors Amphitheatre 08/25 - Carson, CA - Home Depot Center

    QFT! A lot of emo/screamo bands have young upstarts who know more about make-up than screaming. It's all brute friction and stress, no technique. It's an insult to extreme vocalists.

    unfortunately last time coheed was at warped, claudio couldnt sing worth a damn. He needs to lose the high pitch vocals on the album and sing something more in key for him to be able to replicate it live...

    aw poor Bert. It's just like Sonny Moore. And since when was this bulletin about Coheed? It's about the Used, and if youre gonna talk bout coheed go find something about them and comment on it.

    Coheed sucks so much. I thought they're singer was a girl before I saw their video, which was gay. I'm not a Used fan, but I like them alot more than Coheed. The only fans of theirs' I've ever seen were a bunch of emo 5th grade girls.

    It's only because of the way he screams. He uses his vocal cords the wrong way. How do bands like All That Remains, Slipknot, Trivium, Arch Enemy, and bands like that, that primarily scream heavier than any screamo bands, keep their voices, yet many of these metalcore/screamo people lose it? Don't get me wrong, I love screamo/metalcore, and I myself am a screamer and singer in a band, but it's the screamo technique that messes them up. A lot of metal screamers do it too. They OVER-OVER-OVER stress their vocal cords for volume and sound instead of working the diaphram for it. Check out "The Zen Of Screaming" by Melissa Cross to find out more. SHe's worked with Slipknot, Arch Enemy, and other bands with screamers. You'll see what I mean. :-D

    that probably would explain why they sucked at the MMVA's... and as far as the FFTL comment, that would be shitty. it sucks FFTL lost Sonny. but wasn't sonny faking the vocal surgery or somthing? and he was really just playing halo live all the time. . .
    PoisonSnakePit
    Most likely. Actually, FFTL losing sonny was probably the best thing for them. I mean Travis is killin on vocals right now, I've never looked forward to an fftl album coming out till now. On topic: yeah, bert has been having some problems all year, I know it started around the pensacola date of TOC. But, this is good, as much as i like warped, they were only on it for like 7 dates i think, and I 25-30 mins to play a set, isnt that long, I'd rather a full recovery and headline show, then at warped.

    "I hope it's cancer and he dies." your a dick, just because you dont like the music does not mean you have to go and tell him to die. seriously, how immature can you get? i dont think he was gonna be at calgary anyway :\ but hope he gets better..

    so does your english but get well soon bert

    He had it coming, with the whole screamo thing. If you scream your ass off in your 'music', then people shouldn't feel pity for you when your vocal cords die out on you.
