Coffin Crew the latest devotion ceremony is officially in session as The Funeral Portrait taps The Used’s frontman, Bert McCracken, on their brand-new release, “You’re So Ugly When You Cry.” The hymn is a sultry display of devotion that draws from the band and McCracken’s shared flair for the dramatics. Cue a signature maniacal laugh courtesy of McCracken. 

Of the theme of “You’re So Ugly When You Cry,” frontman Lee Jennings explains, “It’s not about healing or the come-up later on, it’s about telling people ‘it sucks right now, I don’t like who I am when I’m like this, and I know you’ve felt the same way.”

He adds, “Working with Bert was a lifelong dream come true for us. We all grew up with The Used being one of our biggest influences, and it was a surreal moment when he reached back out saying he loved the song and wanted to be involved.” 

Next week, The Funeral Portrait will be hitting the road as direct support for Dead On A Sunday alongside NITE. The tour kicks off on April 24 and will run across 14 cities, concluding on May 10 in Nashville, TN.

“This spring, we’re grateful to be given the opportunity to come alive for everyone alongside Dead On A Sunday on our spring 2024 series of Devotion Ceremonies,” Jennings shares. “We will perform new and old hymns for you and ask only that you bring your unwavering devotion in return.”
