Berth is a live CD/DVD by American alternative rock band The Used that was released on February 6, 2007. It has since been certified gold.[3]

DVD information[edit]

Along with the Vancouver concert from the 2005 Taste of Chaos tour, the DVD updates the band's history since 2003's Maybe Memories with footage about 2004's In Love and Death, the world tour, and the making of the new album Lies for the Liars as well as music videos. In addition, the band invited fans to submit questions and then videotaped those selected. It also gave a preview of "Pretty Handsome Awkward", the first music to be heard off of Lies for the Liars, and the recording of "My Pesticide" and "Tunnel".[4][5]

Delay[edit]

The Used were supposed to release a live album in early 2006, but one of the people in charge of filming mysteriously disappeared with much of the footage that was earmarked to be part of the DVD. The band was forced to come up with more footage, but in the long run Jeph Howard said it all turned out for the best. "I’m glad we waited. It's better than our first DVD", Howard said. "Everything has been going like that lately. It's been more than good."[6]
