The founding guitarist will not be joining them on their upcoming UK and US tours, and will be replaced by Saosin guitarist Justin Shekoski.

Legendary alt-rock / emo icons The Used have revealed that guitarist Quinn Allman is to take a hiatus away from the band for the next year. The band issued a statement earlier and had this to say: 

“We are saddened to announce that Quinn will be taking a temporary hiatus from the band for the next year. Quinn is a vital part of the group and we wish him the best in his upcoming endeavors and look forward to the day he rejoins us on the road. We are thrilled, however, to share that Justin Shekoski of Saosin will be filling in for Quinn as we hit the road this year! Justin has been a close friend to all of us for many years and will help make this tour a memorable one!”
